Sweet, thanks dude! Totally need you to film. I have no kite yet, did not pull trigger on Prism tensor 4.2 and it's a lot of money for me. This will be so easy that you will be wondering why you didn't do it too.


If the tensor is too expensive you should check out Ebay. Every now and then there are great deals to be had on Chinese knockoffs of kites like that. You can get them for literally a fraction of the price and they'll be perfect for what you want to accomplish. Also there is Pansh. They make some lifty kites that you can get complete for short change. Since you've got the confidence, this will be wicked easy. Don't let money stand in your way. YOLO.

Hot dog is dog @$$holes and old phonebooks, in a bun.

I am of the opinion that since a bun is a single piece of bread, it isn't a sandwich. At best, you could possibly call it an open-faced sandwich.

What if you don't have a bun and you wrap the mystery-meat in a slice of bread? :o
Can you pretend it's a small kite and still jump with it?

I call hot dogs "tube steaks". My daughter likes them and I usually order them for her calling them tube steaks. It's sort of age test of sorts; a teenager or 20-something will just stare at me not knowing what the heck I'm talking about, but somebody older won't miss a beat!

OK, so sometimes it just has to be enough to crack yourself up... :P

Can you be more specific B-roc with kites? Seems I should spend at least $500 but I don't want the trees to eat it. Also open to waiting for very windy day with 4m and just hanging on for dear life.

Hard to be specific without knowing your weight. If you are worried about the trees why not target the dunes along the National Sea Shore? Limited ranger presence this time of year, you could launch from the parking lot, walk to the bluff and not worry about the trees.

Yeah, I let that Odoules comment slide. "Living well is the best revenge" comes to mind..... :lol:

I suppose "tube steak" could mean different things to different people... That's funny! No, my 17 year old daughter doesn't like tube steaks. And to cut this off right now before it heads down the wrong hole (sorry) my daughter has Special Needs which is why I order for her. This is a family show! ;)

No worries, friend. I was laughing as I was writing about my daughter.

O'douls is the worst invention of all time, sort of like the boob blanket. :lol:

And he's back! Missed ya small wood (soft wood?). The Access is distinctly not the kite you want. It is a wonderful kite for NOT flying. It is actually purpose-built to not lift you, making it a good choice for people wanting kite power WITHOUT lift.

Keep looking...

Found a nice place with no trees. Bought 10 mountaintop acres near Elko NV. Pretty sweet February sunshine, sure beats the northeast. Supposed to hit 60 this week.
