5059Shorter lines for stronger wind.
- Nov 7, 2004The water is very cold now and I was surpirse to see a few kiters out at
Britannia around 3:00PM today.
By the time I got my equipment to the beach around 4 something, the wind
picked up to pretty strong.
I rigged a 5.0, launched it and was overpowered, not that overpowered
but since I was a bit out-of-shape, I decided to drop it to use shorter
So I rerigged the kite with 20m lines and was pretty comfortable with
the condition (average 30 to 35 knots and gust 40 to 45 knots) and ride
I suspect the drop from 25m to 20m lines more or less make my 5.0 acts
like a 4.0
P.S., Normally I don't kitesurf after Haloween so this is an exception
