I think the tricks he did in the vid without the jump were cool, watching people go off that jump is like watching a foiler !$*(

problem is, not a lot of people who kite get to experience going off a kicker regularly. You can do flat water tricks all day in order to refine what "looks cool". Hitting a kicker is difficult and takes a lot of practice to get style. Not to mention its fun, which is the reason most of us kite. Not to look cool.

Here's a vid of some guys with a bit more experience on a kicker. Sloughslut, i wonder if this meets your criteria for looking cool?

Im not saying its not difficult and there not great athelites, but its all been done wakeboarding, hell they even hit jumps on double water skis. Jump that far with no jump! But i think sliders are cool "?%# Remember the sherman slider? its burried on the beach stiil !$*(

Ramsey that video is legit. So difficult to do wakeboarding or kiting!

Will the guy who built these ( or at least broken rotting one on beach) you had the means to get it there now it needs to be hauled to the dump (maybe could be thrown in dumpster at boat ramp) {}[]

I didn't build it, but, yes it will get taken care of. Metal and HDPE doesn't rot. It just needs some lovin in the offseason. It will be pulled soon.
