Re: No Kite Leash ---> Broken Neck

Nice, first of all the damaged kiter placed himself down wind of the jumper, he was just feet from shore preparing to get on the water, you don't launch into a guy on the water making a transition... Safety gear refers to your safety, kite leashes are not for your safety. It was a STORM Tropical Sto...

Re: No Kite Leash ---> Broken Neck

Quoting this post of mine and calling it a personal attack is a fine example of a personal attack by you... again, I don't mind, but I'd prefer to talk kiting... Have you a kite related comment? Thanks fo if there's a sport that requires less glad handing I don't know of it... the topic is important...

Re: No Kite Leash ---> Broken Neck

I suspect the trouble here is a genuine lack imagination...an exercise in blind ambition resulting in a reluctance to recognize any downside of any notion he imagines he invented as having any possibly being a valid point of view... Example: I said close in shore kiting is our problem, and the kite ...

Re: No Kite Leash ---> Broken Neck

You did the same thing last time, Instead of engaging me on topic you just go silly-shoes and launch into a personal attack and whine about how you had good intentions... Listen people die doing this, and good intentions don't count, it's the substance that counts.. man up, have a point of view you ...

Re: No Kite Leash ---> Broken Neck

The truth is out there... Sometimes you have to turn the tables to get it spun in your direction... For years leashes have provided nothing more than "the" excuse for violating all the real-deal areas of conduct that result in total bans, through intimated beach goers and conflicts in the swim zone....

Re: No Kite Leash ---> Broken Neck

well, how about that, run away kites are now manageable and a fairly easy thing to do in most cases.... ---------------------------------- "Kiteboarders were excluded from the downwind area of the square outside of their heat to try to avoid tangles." ---------------------------------- so it looks l...

Re: No Kite Leash ---> Broken Neck

Well you can wait for the principles to answer or you could explore the irony that gives them pause.... I've always been galled by the temerity of those who'd stoop so low as to knowingly play both ends of this safety game: pimp the safety...ala the WINK TV spot and be happy about it. Damien Leroy w...

Re: Epoxy vs. Polyester Resin: the enviroment and your health

the thing you need to know about polyester resin besides it melting EPS foam is that it is not water-proof... What you say? I said it's not waterproof... That's right, you can make it waterproof though, you have to add some slick-um stiff to your final coat... Fire in the hole--is the fin installers...
