Scott I didn't read the whole kiteforum thread, but I did like this one quote. It was pretty darn funny:

Quote:
toast has it right - the more you pay for your kite, the better kiter you are - that is just simple economics! you need to spend at least $1000 per kite to back roll and $1500 and up to handle pass. For $500 you are lucky to stay upwind.

Can anyone who is good at math get me today's numbers factoring in inflation?

$1579 to do a backroll, 1,100 to stay upwind. Sorry Bryan, you won't be able to stay upwind anymore. LMAO.

That guy was joking with Toast and poking fun at him.
It is a pretty ridiculous concept and deserves to be harassed.

Hmmm... doesn't seem to be working.

Man I screwed up the other night and misjudged my landing when we were riding in the dark. Dove the kite hard way too early because I misjudged my landing (thought I was a lot lower than I actually was). Dropped the last 10 feet with no lift at all in a foot of water and landed hard as hell.

My knee is a wreck today. I can hardly walk on it. Crap!

Yeah. I am use to riding at night and even jumping, no worries.
But, it was trying to land an unhooked move that was a joke. I couldn't see the water and also ate one bad. I realized once we were out, we had no glo sticks on our boards. I barely found my board after the teabag.
I won't do that again.

Well since Tom refuses to see that comparisons between apples and oranges are invalid, I wish to substitute the cabrinha OMEGA for my kite pricing in all the above threads.

Please subtract $200 off all cabrinha prices listed in the above discussions ( but you still get the bar/ lines and single pump inflation )


LOLLLLLLL!!!!!!!
