Re: [ksurf] Re: airblast 8.4 control bar
- dear peter
since now i use my c-quad both with handles than with a self made bar... a
very nervous and fast kite....
I experieced with wipikas a little and i love it... so this 8.4 is my first
I like very much to fly a very reactive and fast kite and I'm not a
experienced kitesurfer so i think a 50cm is too short....
I will try both the bar... after Iwill decide my setup...
thanks for answering...
