Re: [ksurf] kite adjustment
- Hi there
Just at the body dragging stage myself in the UK... cos of my weight
though (300lb) my smallest kite I prefered to water drag with was a
Peter Lynn Guerilla II 9mtr. I loved using this kite in the cannaries
and Cyprus as it was so smooth in the air at turning, ald also very
easy to water re-launch (as long as it wasnt bow tied).
I sold the GII as i never really thought it would be a decent kitesurf
kite due to power to weight factor. I also use an X3 Naish for
dragging and sure do have to keep that baby moving, and very seldomly
have it anywhere near zenith, usually 10 oclock, pulls like a train
I have lessons arranged for the Algarve in April and taking a Naish
TTPRO 134 with 12m X3, 16m V4 and 19 Slingy Fuel. Think the 16 will be
the order of the day though, and DEFFO need to get electric pump for
the Fuel (PHEW)..... Also have a 25m V4 and have flown that ONCE on
land obviously unhooked, blimey 5mph of wind and it was lifting me
straight off my feet, if not a little slowly. Not bad for a 20 stone
bloke. Wouldnt do it again though :o|
Oh I buggy too, with 3, 4, 5, 7.2 Ozone Samurai's + Flexifoil Big Tyre
Just my adventures so far...
