Re: Help! Need to get my boyfriend a Christmas gift

those typhoons are sick. Sunglasses is an excellent suggestion for a gift by the way. For me tho, I like quantity over quality, I'm always smashing or losing my sunglasses.

Re: Fatality in France

If your helper isn't paying enough attention to notice that the control bar is laying on the ground and you are walking towards him . . . yeah I dunno what to say about that.

Re: Fatality in France

I don't like raising hands in any way. Just throw the chicken loop away.

Re: HELP! Need to get my boyfriend a Christmas gift

Normally you want to keep kite gifts a bit on the less expensive side because every kiteboard and every kite is different. You have to demo a kite or board for several hours before you are sure you want to make the purchase, and it's even more particular with a kite harness those, you need to make s...

Re: Fatality in France

Remember the best signal that you don't want a launch is to remove your chicken loop and release your leash. A terrible accident.

Re: Fatality in France

Simple question: is it worth putting up that risk for a fighting, cold and no tricks session in 40 knots, where the chance of an injury or even fatality is pretty high? Yes. Megaloops. for pros, yes. not average joe everybody has a different acceptable amount of risk. The problem is when people go ...

Re: Pivot vs Enduro

No... the octopus system can be repaired by anyone. I really like the internal octopus system, all you need is some PTFE tape and nimble hands. I would not consider the octopus system a negative. Anyone can repair it, like Billy said above. The problem is if you send it out for someone else to repa...

Re: Pivot vs Enduro

To me grunt is a kite that pulls more than its stated size would indicate, a10 that pulls more like an11 or 12. Ok well I guess I have to give my opinion on this. At one time I took all my kites, pu...
