Interesting to see to what level Pete and the crew at Cabrinha goes through to test the durability of the kites. The slow motion video is cool to see how much the LE flexes and absorbs the impact. I guess this is one time where pulling in on the bar at impact is OK.

Yes it is incredible to see how different companies test the durability of their kites. This is how we do ours.



God damm I laughed ;) Good humor. Maybe waste of kite ? But I like it dont have to be that serious all the time ;)

That's a heck of a way to justify buying an expensive camera... wonder if that'll work with the Minister of Finance?

"Hey Mrs Kami, I want to buy a GoPro3 Black Edition so I can film me crashing my kites until they break in super-HD and slo-mo... pass the credit card?"

:lol:

So is the point of this video that Cabrinha kites are warranted against damage if they are tomahawked deliberately into the water or sand?
