Yeah OP...at the 1:10 mark what the hell were you thinking? It's one thing to boost just before you pass another rider who is down wind of you but throwing a loop is gonna' pull you right into his heading and you nearly hit the dude.waynepjh wrote:wow kinda looks like you almost hit two people and just about landed on a windsurfer. Cool spot though.

I go to 10psi on mine, when flying the kite at the top end of the wind range it helps keep the kite the right shape. They really don't like flying when under inflated.easy2e wrote:The kite is pumped up to the recommended 8 PSI
the problem happens when performing kiteloops, when it re enters the power it sort of spills out the sides due to its aspect ratio and drag versus air speed, The Edge is not designed for that type of riding, the C4's are much better for that.
I knew some Jobs worth would comment on my risk factor, I say ride it like you stole it, I was simply defining my air space and offering a visual warning to stay the fuck out of my way,
The guy that nearly got nailed is the same dickhead that nearly took out my mate by riding up his arse, You can see his kite crash into the orange one around 3:10,
