Still Crispy

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

I'm kinda liking this one, maybe someone should tell him that you're supposed to stuff the kite in the bag and not the bag in the kite... That distressed look has got something going for it though ah?

Looks like a kite from the film Waterworld or Mad Max...

How do you wear a kite out like that?

"painted gold for goldmember after the movie" ...............I'm hoping this was for work and not pleasure. The kite looks totally badass, probably not too dissimilar to waverider's chronos after all the mods he subjects them to.

No-No-No

Just extra leading-edge-joint protection because everyone avoids me when I need launching or landing and it's you're damn-fault for spreading muck and rumour about a poor old pensioner trying to have a bit of fun in the autumn of his years.

I'm reporting you to someone.

But really to have a go would be cool.. but to own it.. hmmm


I'm only buying it, if it comes pre pumped.. I'm buggered if i'm going to pump that up! Wrecked before I hit the water!

I agree I wouldn't want to be standing under it when it comes back to earth when it falls out the sky! Could you imagin how many bucket and spade types that would take out on the beach! :shock: I think it would make national news.. Oh well some ones going to buy it thinking it's a bargain, I just hope it's not going to be at a beach I use :lol:

The deal was if you wanted a go you had to help pump it up. Not too bad when there was 5 of us. Burnt out an electric pump too.....Some leading edge that was...
