<< I plan to buy a Naish AR5
But I don't know what it's the best to kitesurf until 25 knots : a Naish AR5
7.5m� or 9.5m� ???
I weigh 65 Kg...and very good experience in kitesurfing and power kiting.
So what is the wind range for the AR5 7.5m� and the AR5 9.5m� >>
I can tell you for sure that at 61kg I'm still having fun in 25 knots, but 30
is my absolute limit. I think this will remain unchanged, regardless of any
increasing skill I hope to gain, since at 30 with the kite fully sheeted out
(back lines fully slack) at zenith, I was getting lifted off the water (just
the fin touching). I think only a weight gain would help. I don't know how
to interpret these findings for 65 kg, or for the 9.5
