RE: [ksurfschool] Wich size for 6-12 knots??? Dazed an confused again???
- To get into the Super light wind I use the North 22.5. It actually turns
plenty fast to make the turns necessary to generate power. At 200 lbs I
can ride in less than 10 kts.
I have also ridden the Air Blast 16.4 and it although it doesn't turn
super fast, it does turn fast enough as long as you have enough tension
on the front lines.
Relaunching these monsters in super light air can pose a problem, but
the wipika or North with the reverse relaunch makes it a lot easier.
You should be able to ride the pickle fork with either kite in very
light wind although a floatier board will obviously make a difference in
the amount of work you have to do.

Wich kite size is best for around 6-12 knots?? My currently weight is
about 70 kg 150Lbs and i have a pickelfork 161 ..Is it even possible
to surf in the lower 6-8 knots...Some people say that kites 0ver 20
like naish or wipika 16,4 is to big you cant make a sine wave
pattern ..I was thinking becuase im not that heavy is it better to
have a little smaler kite like 17.5 or something that i kan sine
better..So is a bigger kite generally better for a heavier person
that can handle a little more wind than for a lighter person...Or
should ill I just by the biggest kite out there..I hope someone
could help me clear this out??
Why cant i get a wind range from naish or wipika ????
