Re: Wainmann Punch, Boss, and Big Mama: too close to be practical?

I do get a lot of use out of the 10...

Re: Vote for Dimitri KOTA video

"Video clip can not exceed 120 seconds (2’,00”). We are not looking for long video clips, we want a short edit packed with plenty of extreme action." his video clip is 165 seconds so i'd say that could be an issue? also agreed with the other comment about few landings filmed. Each filmed trick show...

Re: Kite Harness 2.0, a technical overview from designer

i think this could be down to your marketing, website and availability. dynabar is something i've wanted to try for a long time but never been in the right place at the right time to borrow one or find one to test. I travel a lot so not something i can easily arrange because i don't have a "local be...
