Re: HQ kites are a bad joke

4 kts of wind is not even enough to inflate the kite, let alone fly it unless you know how to fly it. You need to learn in at least 15 kts. Pre inflation will help. Learn to fly before you dis the Manufacturer, HQ does make good kites, your not a good HQ HYDRA flyer, but could be.

Re: Bicep tendonitis - good excercises to do, please?

Massage 3x a day 5-10 minute, use whatever targets the area, rollers, fingers, door nob. 5-10 mins not just a rub. Stay away from NSIADs they prolong healing. Prolotherapy. Stretch if it hurts your doing it right.

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

Regardless of hook position, the harness itself, and it's contact with the body, dictates where the power is transferred to the rider. Depends on the seat harness, mine is form fitting to back, but does not ride up due to leg straps, which is nice when looping. When pulling a deadman Abs work hard ...

Re: How to self launch a kite

Big sandy beach that would be nice, but for launching in not nice areas, drift launching much safer, as long as there is no big waves and water is not deep.
