Take - When a fixed bridle kite suddenly powers up after a stall that leaves the kite pointing at the center of the window.

"Oh look at Jim's kite stall in this dirty wind. It's about to take him... aaaaand there he goes." --a solid thud in the background, followed by a long groan of pain

One we've used a lot lately:

Janky--

Adjective for the poor quality of wind; usually filling one or more (usually all) of the following descriptors: Shifty, gusty, lull infused, multidirectional, generally unstable, or within the metro Atlanta area.

Used in a sentence:
It looked like it was nuking, so I called my girlfriends to head out. But the wind turned out to be really janky so after a few attempts, a good take, one or two lawndarts and a vicious OBE turned superman, I did the walk of shame, packed it up and went home.

Flying-- Flysurfer: 6m Peak 1 (A Minty Fresh generous gift) & 12m Peak 2 (The gnat fart catcher)

Current PB-- 28.5 mph,... MAN THAT'S FAST!!!

CBVOBE - Code Brown Vertical Out of Buggy Experience

Can occur when a newbie buggy pilot (that would be me) is speeding down a field with a large DP kite in the air, sends it back the other direction in gusty winds without changing buggy direction, doesn't have the good sense to realize things are about to go seriously wrong, figures out things are going wrong, brilliantly decides on the fly that the best course of action at that very moment is to PULL IN the control bar, and quite suddenly finds himself many feet in the air above the buggy quite bottom loaded. :crazy:




Kites:
Born-Kite LongStar-2 (3.5m, 5.5m, 7.5m, 9.5m, 12.5m);
Born-Kite NASA Star-3 (1.5m, 2.5m, 3.2m, 4.0m; z-bridled for handle flying)

Buggy:
Peter Lynn Bigfoot+ modified with VTT rail & seat kit (a seriously great performance upgrade), two sets of Sysmic rims (one set with BigFoot slicks for the "beach" of the Great Salt Lake and the other with 6-ply trailer tires for the Ivanpah playa), and BigKidKites AQR (because it keeps me in the bug and in my marriage)

Kober - now that's what I'm talking about!!! Loved the editing. Why do I suspect the actual crash didn't quite involve such grace and poise over the camera as the video implied? :bouncy::bouncing:

Was that your dad? He had sort of the expression I imagine my father would have if he watched me kiting.

Nice to see my CBVOBE expression getting some traction. Good thing PKF doesn't have a "scratch and sniff" feature. :lol:
