Exclamation I-4 kitesurfing..baby!

Ok here's the deal...drive down I-4, then pump up, next launch out the window( taking great care to note the wind direction, so as to not launch in the power zone ). Also only atempt this new style of kitesurfing with an FDA approved flatround square type kite w/ helium intergration, as the C-flat-sle kite will not suffice. And their you go! Youtube vids to follow........

Helium integration is just a marketing gimmick they want you to believe...

Default Helium Integration

I've seen the helium integration kits, they tested them on Myth Busters.

Plus if its printed on a website it must be true!

Its the Reverse Dynamic Air Profile of the kite that really makes the difference though!

Guys have inflated their kites with helium in really light wind thinking it would help.

No, I don't believe there is an official helium integration kit...

As far as Myth Busters, they tested punting footballs filled with different gasses including helium and measured distance and hang time...

There was no significant finding that helium did anything different than air...
