TRIGGER WARNING FOR PUMPY
Pumpy ain't never been triggered by nuffin!!!! He ain't no snow flake. He's not special in a "snowflakey" way. He's regular like all the other nuts that desperately want to be considered normal, all the while the "normies" are now to be considered nutz!

Any kite that uses this principle is, by definition, a "ram air" kite.
Cool story. Any "ram air" is a foil kite based on the design of a parafoil (a non rigid airfoil). So what´s your point exactly?

Time for new topic for 2022. Kind of running out of time this year with all the holidays and being busy for the rest of the year

I'm a bit dissapointed that this thread hasn't degenerated into a mass of bickering and general my cock is bigger than yours statements.
We are all getting older, wiser and more patient to fucktardism.

Maybe I need to start an alter ego... and call myself KiteyMcKiteface and start waging a war on the lineless wing dingers.

PumpMeUp still calls cars horseless carriages... :D

He may just be copying and pasting and not bothering to change the heading to Foil Kites Crash in 2021.

Those damn wing-dingers piss me off too; what with all their easy wave carving just holding on to the handle at the leading edge... Then again I've spent about 20 minutes trying it and strangely enough it is not quite as easy as it looks. Nevertheless, I always get a good laugh watching them try to get out past the first sandbar, In conditions where I have a hard time getting my hydrofoil out with a kite.
