Why is it that when I sell stuff, which is in good condition and not more than 2 years old, no-one is ever interested and I end up nearly giving it away - but put a battered old 2006 kite on Ebay and people go mad over it resulting in a bidding war and a sale price far in excess of what I usually get? Grrrrrrrrrr :evil:

Roy stuart is a self proclaimed worlds leading authority in something nobody gives a toss about. Tunnel fins on surfboards.

This has to be a wind up surely?

"THIS IS AN INFLATABLE D POWER KITE. THERE ARE SPINES THATRUN DON THE KITE AND THE INFLATABLE EDGE MAKE IT PERFECT FOR USE AS SURFINGKITE. IT HAS NO RIPS OR TEARS AND HAS STILL A VERY CRISPY SOUND TO IT. THEREARE NO STRINGS OR BARS. THIS IS FOR THE SALE OF THE KITE ALONE. MEASURING A MASSIVE10METERS AS FAR AS I KNOW THAT'S' WHAT THE 10 PRINTED ON THE KITE WILLINDICATE. THE JOINING EDGES AND ATTACHMENT ARE ALL IN PERFECT ORDER. IT COMESWITH A PLASTIC BAG THAT'S NOT REALLY SUITED TO CARRY THIS KITE. I GUESS YOU CANGET SUITABLE BAG OR SIMILAR FROM EBAY. I CAN POST USING MY HERMES. BUTCOLLECTION IS PREFERRED..EXCELLENT SPRING OR SUMMER PROJECT FOR SOMEONE IN THEKNOW.
I HAVE DESCRIBED EVERYTHING AS FULLY AS I CAN. HOWEVER I CAN GET MOREPICS IF REQUIRED AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELSE DROP ME A LINE..( "

An inflatable D ?

As far as I'm aware I only suffer short-term memory loss so he either made up the term or it's something recent I'm not aware of.

Presumably this stuff is turning up at car boot sales, it's a frightening thought the mess someone could get into buying this stuff though It's crispy and clearly even those who know nothing about the sport know that crispy is important.

If they talk about string how would they know about crispy, they didn't pick it up from forum-reading did they ? Crispy, yes. But string ?

I bet it's Graeme. :-D
