So you left them flapping on the beach for a whole year before the TE wore out?
Or only part of the year?
Sounds like you got mileage from them.
I thought everybody knew not to leave the kite parked with TE flapping all day.
Or did you never leave the kites carelessly flapping,
and do it by doing like 10000 kiteloops in one year?
Maybe there is a prize for that....
