Re: Bruno is developing an autozenith tube kite

You sir are an ignorant idiot. I suggest you stop using the internet as it is obviously a crutch for your ego. Aww, but I'm your idiot :heartface: :kiss: Furthermore, I'll acknowledge that my previous post was antagonistic and was emotionally fueled criticism that was presented in an unproductive f...

Yes I do, did you know they gave the patent away for free because it was such a life saver?
LOL - I just looked that up, you're right.

To be widely used it should probably be royalty free. So for an individual brand putting lots of R&D into it it will be hard to earn back their efforts.

Re: When will the kite industry provide something other than chicken loops and hooks?

So is this a complaint thread? Or an idea thread? If you don't like hooks and loops, what do you like? Do you have a sketch of what you have in mind? From an engineering perspective, there seems to be few configurations beyond a classic hook and loop system. Even the seat belt idea is based on a spr...

Re: Bruno is developing an autozenith tube kite

What a stupid idea. As I explained to my wife who is interested in learning to ride this year; Standing in the water flying the kite around, learning how the kite makes power is NOT representative of what actual flying is like when moving at speed on a board. This "auto zenith" concept is not valuab...

Re: Would You Or Would You Not Wear Your Wifes Panties

I sometimes wear a retro, neon orange shorty wet suit (circa 1985). The years have taken their toll on this suit and now the ass section is completely blown out... Needless to say I had to start wearing board shorts over top of that bad boy as not to scare the local children.

Re: What is more dangerous, racing motorcycles or kitesurfing?

I think racing motorcycles is arguably safer than street riding. Controlled environment vs unpredictable human error. That said, I both kiteboard and ride a motorcycle. I place restrictions on myself for both activities - but more so on the motorcycle. As an example, on the motorcycle I never drink ...

Re: Twintip board recommendations for people with knee issues

There is a lot of mantra in this thread that appears to be the consensus because it is often repeated, but I doubt is entirely true or at least deserves further qualification. Hydrofoil are leg savers - smooth ride true, but then why do so many advise strapless, foils are only a leg saver if you ke...

Re: Twintip board recommendations for people with knee issues

There's no doubt about it - hydrofoils are the ultimate leg savers. Their performance and comfort FAR outweigh their steep learning curve. The only follow up to that is a nice surfboard. My opinion is that twintips are the most high impact board format. Sure you can get 'comfortable' ones, but a duc...
