kinda Funny pump me up the truth of the matter is.

I could go further upwind then you could on any lei with my F-arcs and G-arcs Its undisputed.

Secondly If you actually tried an F-arc you would agree they jump bigger.

The funny thing is today I was cruzing along and holding ground in a mere 10-12 knots on my F12 while an 21m LEI had no performance gains over me. 12m vs 21m and I would to see him hold it down in 25 knots like I can the F.

Give it time and you will see.

PMU I took you up on your bet but you bottled it at odds of 64-1, you obviously believe what you say but not 100% - I'd think otherwise you would of given odds of 1000 - 1.

Never mind you missed out on winning my 10 quid.

PS How's the therapy going.

I think i got it now.
PMU's plan for world Foil-Ram domination.

1) Anti-Foil-Ram propaganda effect causes all Foil-Ram users to sell, sell, sell.

2)Foil-Ram market crashes.

3) PMU and PMU's minions buy up all Foil-Rams and manufacturing resources.

4)PMU wins PKRA with new super Foil-Ram.

5)Demand for Foil-Rams explodes.

5a)PMU corners Foil-Ram market and reaps in a fortune.

6)PMU throws huge party for all kitesurfers in the world.

PMU, I'll be watching you :o
Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean nobody's after you.

Dear Pump,

You must NOT use your pump to inflate your head or other parts of your body. Read the warnings, overinflation may cause bladder to explode.

Well, I guess it's pretty close now....

I do love my inflatable kites and would never change to RAM's but hey,come on, respect dude... There is no need for this on this forum.

Over and out!

I already took you on on that bet 2 months ago, you clearly do not read the posts & replies on your topics because else you would have known, still waiting for that Personal Message on the bet.

Thanks and waiting...

I wonder if his "ram-air" persecution complex is still relevant today? Bloody hell - I can get over 10meter jumps with my Flysurfer, than I could with a similar sized LEI kite that in the end needs way more wind.
