Re: [ksurfschool] Line length
- Hi David
That kite works best on 40M lines, especially when learning. If you nedd to you can go to 30M but it is best to not go shorter as it is not a tight turning kite, and you will just end up crashing a lot.
Some of them needed minor adjustments to the bridles to get decent performance from them and the bigger ones were not that relaible for water re-launching either, so stick close to shore.
If you are patient and sensible, it will be fine to learn the basics on. Just ask here if you need help with any part of your learning process, have fun.
open 7 days, every week.

Subject: [ksurfschool] Line length
I purchased a 9 meter F-One foil to learn on. I have windsurfed and
waterskied for years, plus this was used and cheap. I took a beach lesson
and flew a 7 meter foil without any difficulty, and the instructor said I'd
be ok with the nine. But I measured the lines at roughly 150 feet. One
source said no, definitely shorter lines for learning, which is fine with me
as not many beaches have 300' of space. But your how-to page said long
lines are good to learn on... Any suggestions?
I will be on the Vineyard next week if any other newbies want a joint
session, email me.
