What happened to the 'Wind Weapon'
 
Does anyone remember the Wind Weapon'. Does anyone still have one.
Now it was a wierd windsurfing spin-off, half wave jumper half hang glider.

Same thing that's happening to Windsurfing
 
De-evolution and a slow death.

Rumors of its death have been greatly exaggerated - check it out here - the Kitewing Wavewarrior - with video available on youtube also.

Time can't tell whether you make this call in jest or provocation, but even if true how would the world be a better place? If you are a coset Kite Converter, the end of windsurfing would only lead to crowded Kite-surfing and eventual restrictions and banning of Kiting, as is happening all over the world, just had another beach banned to kiters where I live last week, because of safety concerns. So how in the hell is the world better off with your bullschit statement

nice try.
 
looks like u reincarnated 15 years later into the same windweapon debacle. none of those youtube videos show smooth jibing. in fact, all the jumps are crashes or uncontrollable, out of straps, airtime. same shit as windweapon.

actually, with windweapons, they got some huge lofting airtime....
