Re: Total eBay nightmare

I'm pretty considerate, but I'd tell this seller to fly a kite :bye:

Re: Limit of height jumping

I like seeing huge air, but I love seeing the butter soft precision landings. My favorites are the peeps on flat water boosting 25ft then landing with an updraft almost.

Re: You know it's a good day....

Having to pump 4 kites and being over powered the whole time sounds like shit craic to me. I'd rather pump 1 kite and be perfectly powered Started at 8:30am finished at 4:30pm. My 12m and 9m sit in the darkness begging to be flown, I pump them up indoors just to let them live a little each month. W...
