Conversely, it's much less hassle when you want to get a second kite, even if it's just for occasional use. And you won't get arrested for playing with it on the beach, or in bother for suggesting that your mates have a go.
Anyway. Guess what arrived this morning? (-: Really can't argue with that. I've not opened it yet, figure it'll be easier to wrap (for some value of "easy") if I leave it in the shipping cardboard. See my patience and restraint? I like to think that I've grown as a person.
I'm now the proud owner of an EXP. Erm, or rather, my girlfriend will be in a few weeks. It's wrong of me to be excited about someone else's Christmas present, right?
Thank you all -very- much for all your comments and help with my nubbish questions, it's greatly appreciated. It's lovely (and makes a refreshing change) to find a forum full of enthusiastic and helpful people rather than trolling idiots and pretentious w@nkers. I only joined the forum here to pose this question, but after the reception I've received I'll be loitering around I think.
