RE: [ksurf] Re: Gusty winds: what kite?
- It did fly strangely on land, only because none of us were really used to
it, the guys who flew it best were hooked in and heavily loading it before
turning it back to boost.
When I flew it I was feeling a bit old :-), wearing someone else too big
harness, and I am very wary of jumping on land with a kite I am unfamiliar
with, and generally reluctant to jump on land anyway due to the 6 crushed
vertebrae I have sustained in previous accidents (1 kite and 2 motorcycle
It seemed to me that you had to maintain load on the front lines, if not it
would tend to stall, this is easier on the water as you are going to be
constantly in the trim loop and edging hard against the pull of the kite.

riding it, I was busy launching so didn't watch it to closely...
It'd didn't look like it flew all that well on the beach, but then I
know nothing about it!! Looked like it'd make a good slip'n'slide to
me! Would have been good to have sceen it in action in good
