Inhaling helium is incredibly dangerous, not the kind of thing the kite community want people to see and young people to copy, especially without an approved helmet on.

This place has become a toxic mess of hate. Foil boarders and wing surfers are fully to blame.

No world sailing are legitimate.. they even have the letters "ing"in both the sports of sailing and kiteboarding. They are one in the same sport.

Ban YouTube from kiteforum unless they have helmets on, actually ban YouTube anyway.

I popped some kids balloon today and explained how that could be one more MRI scan, enough is enough.

OMG! He is scarce! But wait.... why can I buy a big bottle to fill baloons for a few bucks then?

BTW: He & N2 are both used in MRI magnets. Liquid He inside to cool the coils, liquid N2 as a surrounding (cheap) insulation. The N2 has to be refilled once a week, the He only once per year.

Better put your helmet on before posting kiteforum today! Looks like the global helium shortage is keeping the wind from blowing.
Just imagine that someone would get video where if they fill kitewing with helium. Forum police would track them down and pop all bladers :))) for more MRIs :))

Don't worry, we're pretty close to sustainable fusion power and that will give us all the He we could ever dream of needing.
