I flew my 16One yesterday from around noon until about 1:30 - check out the graph below.  I used a beat up, old 6’2 surfboard with a lot of rocker (but lots of float), and was able to stay upwind and catch waves without working the kite, while everyone else walked the beach or watched! I weigh 150 lbs. This kite has the low end of a good 18-20m C kite.

[quote author=“kurt”]So, you were able to keep it flying & catch waves in 7-8 mph?  Mine’s supposedly coming in a couple days (waitin’ since early February)!!!

Not sure what’s up with the graph, check the ikitesurf archives for Tourmaline for 04/30/06 if you want to see it. It was averaging about 10mph. It was really steady, in the 8-12mph range during my session.

[quote author=“kurt”]That’s still sounding really good; if I can get out & rock in 10mph, I’m gonna be one happy kiter.
