An umbrella is not a kite. Just making sure you know that.

Are u an admin???
How comes u get to change everything on here ?? Just delete the post because its obviously not an umbrella.. it's a kite

I can't delete it.. i was pretty impressed by that pic a week ago ..

and i had absolutely no idea that was from the 'era' of charlie chapman....woops

It probably flies better than my 2009 ocean rodeo 8mtr that I had briefly .

I've done some umbrella longboard skating. It gets you up to speed when its windy. But the upwindability of the brella is ****house. Hell you can't even go cross wind, broad reach at best.

I believe you really need a higher aspect brella.
