You do great job on your r1, I follow all of your videos !
I totally agree with you on thin profile, even if the kestrel airfoil is very stable on A line on this soaring exercice despite deformations.
I wanted to bring on paraglider what kestrel has bring for kiteboarding, great depower and handling... But after this test, I 've learnt depower and handling are not the main interesting feature.
So I will try a more classical paraglider bridle... I' ll get probably better results.
Enjoy your life, and be safe for this new year 2024 !!
