Competition is where the cutting-edge takes place, all the best and newest stuff will be there, as well as your friends!

Friends, yes... The rest, not so sure I agree.

Competition is probably at the lowest overall point it's seen in the past 25+ years, both in terms of participation and innovation / skill / institutional knowledge... Not to say it won't come back (if we change the format), but not right now.

FWIW, JB is one of my witnesses to throwing a 4 stack :D

The reason I don't compete "is" friends.. I'm far to obsessive.. a decision to compete would also bring out the competitive jerk in me..  I prefer to do demos without the judging part in place.. I also gladly share kites and techniques much like many others.. I don't hoard info.. this thread is active proof of that.. I've shared all my secrets to throwing a stack.. It still doesn't make it easy..

      20-25mph winds and this kite is very quick on short lines.

      I wrote the instructions up and posted them for your use. This takes a small Dual line foil to a whole new level. Stops on a dime and spins like there's no tomorrow. With a few materials and bit of time you can tweak an otherwise good stunt foil into a Quadline Contender..
