Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

COVID-19 is merely the latest of a series of human and animal diseases originating in China. I'm not explaining, use Google to see for yourself. China has over the years been repeatedly warned that it must improve it's food hygiene, but to no avail. The only good thing about COVID-19 is that it seem...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

The point that you are determined to avoid is that the overwhelming majority of the public do not wear effective masks. Pointless trying to discuss this further with you. I was of the same opinion, given the mechanical limits of masks, particularly surgical masks. Someone mentioned those numbers her...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Although the West has ignored the Easts use of masks so far it would be wise not to I think. Think again. All the masks people are wearing do is catch expelled mucus when they sneeze or cough. They do not filter infectious droplets expelled through the mask by the wearer, neither do they filter out...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

So given the wide and quick early spread of this out of Wuhan, the infection rates must be much higher than stated. If we look at the most accurate death rate under the highest testing its 0.7%. Do some basic math on China's total dead 100/0.7x3281(china reported dead)= 468714 infected. China was k...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

The latest research in the UK indicates that the most significant comorbidity for CORVID-19 is having a BMI of over 25. In other words, being overweight or obese. https://www.icnarc.org/About/Latest-News/2020/03/22/Report-On-196-Patients-Critically-Ill-With-Covid-19 This is what the CDC says about t...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

We may have the right to bear arms in the usa but if you ever actually defend yourself or your property with a gun you may very well end up wishing you had used it on yourself instead before ending up in prison ha This is very true in a time of peace, while Law & Order exist. In that case, the gove...

Re: Adaption to smaller size kite

I'm generally am the other way round. I ride small kites a lot. Then when I get back on the big kites, I'm like What is this slow piece of shit. Most kiters have an issue with this. But at its root, it is completely psychological. A small kite is fast enough to redirect almost as fast as you. So yo...
