: Re: first snow/water kite
- --- A good beginer kite for packed snow, deep snow, and great for
water is the New Wave by Concept Air in Canadian dollards. This kite
will reverse launch when nose down , by pulling center line about 8
or 10". Now when it's flying you pull a little on center line to
depower it, pull a little more to make it come down trailling edge
first nice and soft or pull a lot to collaps the kite in mid air. It's
a close cell foil and they come in 3.8 6.0 9.3 12.5 did you know about
this one, Andy? Later from Jonnykitesurfer.
