Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

Global ice is melting at an alarming rate, but keep those posts coming about how I should not be worried, and the data is wrong... https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jan/25/global-ice-loss-accelerating-at-record-rate-study-finds What does alarming rate mean? Did the ice increase at an ala...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

Let's hope this topic isn't closed forever and that new insight could be discussed in this thread. And then I'm not talking about the typical bumps we see when there is some heavy rain somewhere etc. - where you can never show any sort of causality between man made climate change or just climate cha...

Re: Ozone Edge v Core XR6

In my opinion 10 and 13 is a much better fit than 10 and 12, but then again you can get the XR6 in 13.5. You can use the XR6 with an Ozone-bar, but you probably won't get max out of your XR6 then.

Re: Covid vaccine

So if we combine Newton’s third law of thermodynamics with a very liberal interpretation of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principal of complimentary pairs, do we get; For every expert, there is an equal & opposite expert? Just asking.... I don't think people should treat that problem lightly. I am assum...

Re: Kiteboard model and size advice for Big air, choppy 20kts average

Depends on how you define big I guess? You can do some very decent jumping in 20 knots at 72kg. Billy's list looks like a good list to me. Core XR6 would be another. Not sure how much higher you would go compared to a Switchblade 2017, but there might be some? I got friends with Switchblades, but ne...

Re: What would you do if?

I'm not sure if I am allowed to reply to posts written by Herman, but interesting dilemma in my opinion raised. I have had one launch kind of similar to the one in the OP.
