4192Re: Kite for newbie
- May 23, 2003Ok maybe I'm wrong but the Takkoon 16.5 kite is the largest kite from
this mark. It's designed for the windspan 6 to 15 knts ( ~3-7.5 ms).
So if the wind speed up to 10-11ms 20-22knts you will be in a power
up condition and that can be dangerous. If you're an experienced kite
surfer this should not be a problem if you are careful under what
condition you fly... but if you're a beginner (like I am!) to power
kiting you should maybe consider a smaller kite...
correct me if i'm wrong about this information?!
I found the information about the kite takoon wook on these sites:
