Okay, how about just showing it in the air? Point is, show more than someone trying to rip it in half.
I'd love to see more riding footage too!

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I do find it odd that we're not see videos of a 17m Aluula kite hanging along side a foil kite in very light wind and video showing how much faster it turns. Time will tell but it seems like a lost opportunity to market this stuff. I don’t think that’s odd- does ocean rodeo make a foil kite? If the...

did you see the tear test?

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

seriously though the references to the Hellfish are too real - If I recall correctly one of the unforeseeable issues with that material (cuben fiber) was that it was too rigid, and that meant it would slice through stitching when under tension and led to the leading edge exploding. Did you guys not ...

why don't kite bags have line spools?

You guys might remember me from my questioning "Why are pump bases flat?" http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2374806 Here's my new question, why don't we create a spooling system for lines in our kite bags?

Re: PKRA Pingtan - What The Shame!

I think Toby has an excellent point. Some would call it "politics", but judging is subjective and this is just an example of differing perspectives. Clearly everyone wants to be the winner ;) Judging, has it ever been fair? Specially when scores differ 0.5 etc ? Personal taste plays a part of it. Is...

Re: Greg of BRM in my hone spot!

I've had the pleasure of meeting Greg, too. He has an incredible story about how he came to start BRM.
