It is ironic and a bit humorous to be sure. Just wanted to make sure the point got through. Sorry for the intensity.

I communicated a bit with the developers, it sounds like they are really trying to develop something that might take off. You flick the control bar to throw jumps. Your height and glide duration are a function of the degree of technique you employ. It isn't simply a function of pull velocity unlike regular tow ups. I understand they use weak links (big hint for survivability) and other safety considerations. Ken Winner developed the kite for the activity. Time will tell how well it does once it hits the market.
