I was simply correcting an erroneous statement of yours. Off topic or not, I will do this every single time I catch one. That is essential to getting to an answer for the OP, and for preventing the proliferation of misconceptions. The idea you hold that area of a windsurfing sail is equivalent to flat area of a kitesurfing kite, with regards to power, is wrong. And leaving it uncorrected would lead to some others believing as you do.james wrote: ↑Mon Jul 08, 2019 5:09 pmYou want to turn this into a shit fight clearly....
You say yourself the Kite has massive amount of extra material to produce a working are comparable with a 7 m sail, yet you say I am ignorant for suggesting kites don’t have the last word in efficiently.
Would you like to contribute to the OP or just drag this off topic?
Just like you, I am often wrong. When someone has the courtesy to correct me, it gives me a better concept of what is really happening. So you and I are similar in this respect. Where we differ is that I am thankful to the person for correcting me where I am wrong. You do not seem to be thankful for being corrected. Think about that for a moment, and ask yourself which approach is better for learning and collaboration.
It is nice that you donate your time on this forum and you put out some very good information and a perspective that is valuable. So don't take this correction as a personal attack. I just want to set things right.
