Ram Airs Crash in 2020

Postby Pump me up » Sun Nov 15, 2020 7:31 am

Well, hasn’t 2020 been a *shocker*: COVID-19, loss of civility in political and public discourse, economic recession, Chinese Communist Party aggression, riots, environmental degradation, Islamic terrorism, and bushfires.

BUT … above and beyond all of these issues, what has *REALLY* pissed-me-off during the last year has been the RIDICULOUS claims from ram lovers. Despite the lies and exaggerations, ram airs cRaSHeD in 2020.

Ram airs continue to suffer from HORRIFIC issues. Ram lovers try to hide these problems in their own *special* forum viewforum.php?f=197 , but the problems leak out: inferior lifespan, safety issues, sinking, problems with relaunch/landing on rough beaches, and mixer tuning problems. Of particular note, there have been a lot of complaints about “bridal (sic) shrinkage”, which is ironic, because most men complain about post-honeymoon bridal stretching.

Despite these problems, the “Ram Lovers Association of Nigeria is working to bring ram fighting into the mainstream by ensuring ram safety and fair play.” https://www.nbcnews.com/slideshow/ram-f ... ia-n544761

It's interesting to note that NO ram airs..... no NOT ONE (!)…. feature anywhere near the top of world rankings in ANY discipline on the GKA World Tour https://www.gkakiteworldtour.com/rankin ... =freestyle . Ram airs cRaSHeD in Freestyle, Wave, and Speed disciplines.

Ignore the LIES, particularly those pushed by Nigerian Ram Lovers. Ram airs are INFERIOR vs. inflatables.

Cheers,

Pumpy :pump:

That's pumpy as a kid! Thinking that may have happened a time or two on concrete with him. Might explain a bit more of the story as well.
