wtf am I doing arrgg.
Just being you
Expert meaning: a person who is very knowledgeable about or skillful in a particular area.
I know kites - all types of traction kites - inside out. Foil kites, LEI's, arcs, single skins - every part and component and their functions. I don't know how it could be anything else when I've designed hundreds models and also fabricated tens of them. I also know the process of kite fabrication form the beginning to the final tuning. I can make every part for kitesurfing equipment from basic materials, including line work, bars, harnesses and boards, also hf's. For wetsuits I have no interest however
I currently own some 20 kites and I have used and tested perhaps 200 different kites in last 15 years, maybe more. I stopped counting years ago at 120. I also know quite well where development in PG's is at the moment.
In design work I use mostly SP, but I know how to use some other design programs as well.
For the topic I've had couple of times to quit in a hurry because of closing thunder storm and starting lightning. Absolutely I see there is a risk to get struck by lightning so better to be safe than to die.
