Re: No need for a release system/safety?

Perhaps its your approach, but I am not the only one who seems to think you have advocated the use of the wichard shackle without leash on numerous occasions. Case in point directly above. Do as you wish, but use a little common sense when posting on an international forum in threads that can have ...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

It is the same argument you are using. How would u know what's appropriate when after a while a recall might happen? The majority of us on the water on my local are recreational riders who have distant advantage of our environment. We are not Nico, or Olly but one day maybe. Saying that something is...

Re: Kite Turn Accelerator by Bruno Legaignoux

^

You mean a Cab bar with 1:2 pulleys? There was no Switchblade bar.

Kudos to Bruno. At least someone is thinking out of the box and not afraid to show it publicly.

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

Exactly.

Can Toby lock this thread and can go in the history? I mean, the most fun on this forum I've had was when building the boards....

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

Ha ha you are joking, right? 99% racers are on foil kites. 99% accidents happen when landing/launching, when this piece of cloth is released the most damages it can do to a public, well, almost nothing. Support boats? The guys are racing every Saturday/Wednesday at my local, no boat ever. Only on st...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

Ha ha Toby, if referring to my post, we are avoiding the obvious, many many racers are not using a leash. Many many racers are using Wichard release. Many many are kiting alone, particularly foilers. Or Plummet by that matter :) Many many are riding in suicide mode. Agreeing with this or not, that's...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

Given that there are other people on the planet, and beaches and water are desirable for recreation for the vast majority of them, there will be beach goers at potentially every location you can kite at. This guy never visited Australia. Today, 3 foilers, ZERO beach goers on 2km stretch. Its Easter...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

There’s no excuse not to have a leash. there is: a complete egoistic person who gives a f*** about anyone else in this world And those people should take up another sport where they can only endanger themselves with whatever they do. I met such people...many years ago in Egypt...when it was a hot t...
