Hula hoop is gay, the whole reason people are doing handlepasses is for the commitment. there is NO commitment with that setup, my grandma could pass it with one of those.

Dont let me see you wearing one of those at moks PH (unless you wear it with a grass skirt and coconut brah).

I am sure this will offend many people but please take it as best as you can as an objective view:

All these gadgets including shackles and board handles (Aaron's hula hoop being the absolute most rediculous example of a gadget) just emulates what happened to windsuffering by becoming a nerdy equipment intensive sport.

I dont care what you ride; twin tip, wake, directional, mutant, inflateable, ram, etc. but please dont cheat by using gadgets. Stick to the truth:
1) a handle pass is only a handle pass when you are not connected to the bar other than using your hands........that is it.
2) a board off/varial is not one unless you are grabbing the rail...that is it. "no door knobs, no leetle hooks, no velcro...can you handle.........can you handle da truth?"
3) shackles are for people who can't handle the real world (e.g. kiting unhooked).

maybe he doesn't have the manpower yet to do it?
Or maye his parents are forbidding him to do a "real" handle pass due to liability reasons?

If it would be my kid I would be afraid if I'm responsible and my kid would do handle passes and the kite would fly away and hurt someone - I would be in jail!!!

Who knows, can be true?Maybe someone being in Cabarete can ask him?

Maybe with all the talk about safety issues etc. this is designed as an innovation to enable handle passes without the risk of losing the kite and creating havoc!

Personally I am Sooooooo over handle passes!!!!

Its all you hear about! The next World champ is obviousley going to be the one that does the most handle passes!!!

Look at all the photos lately.Someone hanging upside down,halfway through a pass.I don't really know what it has to do with kiting!

just another trick,that accomplishes nothing really!

Disclaimer:

Before I am totally flamed and trashed by the one eyed,one trick brigade,let me state right now that----NO ! I can not do handle passes!!

Shit! I can hardly jump!!
But,I want to see something other than handle passes in photos and videos!
