The lengths people go and prices they ready to pay just not to buy a foil kite.fernmanus wrote: ↑Fri Mar 26, 2021 5:06 amYes, Aluula is needed for big air kites because we ride them in OP conditions. So, the kite takes more of a beating when landing. Plus, who wants to pump up another kite when the wind drops? It is so much easier to grab a big board or a hydrofoil.
When the wind drops dramatically, which unfortunately happens all the time at my local spot, you want a kite that stays in the air so that you can get to the beach instead of slowly drifting in. The Aluula kites have proven to win in sub-rideable conditions, just wish there was a high aspect, 5 strut model.
its not ridiculous ..why would it be ..Haven't heard anyone complaining Ferrari or latest iphone is expensive ..these are not needs.. plenty of cheap kite out there..
I fear this will derail fairly quickly, but you haven't heard anyone complaining about iPhones being expensive?sonny2727 wrote: ↑Fri Mar 26, 2021 11:00 amits not ridiculous ..why would it be ..Haven't heard anyone complaining Ferrari or latest iphone is expensive ..these are not needs.. plenty of cheap kite out there..
Now a bit about the theory ..if manufacturers cannot get a premium on new development there's no motivation to spend on R&D and take risks, and innovation will never happen just like it didn't in soviet union where everyone had the same car..
Few years from now Aluula will be as cheap as dacron and that's the way it should be...thanks 2 Apple i can buy a really good Oppo for $300..
