Guys I tested a 10m Rise with and without the line extensions the same day back to back, the true is that with 21m lines the kite is way faster, but it lost so much power that I had to bring the extensions back, now, this can change in other kite size. At least with the 10m Rise i wont suggest to take off the extension unless you are so overpowered and with no smaller kite.

cheers

Wazzaah cheats because Wazzaah inhabits the windiest spot in like the hole western Europe or so. Plus he gets to enjoy the most fantastic view on the incredibly scenic “Pearl of the Waddenzee” Vlieland! http://www.hanglos.nl/kitespot/153255/kitesurfspot-terschelling-groene-strand.html, check the wind stats (16knots average in November!!!)
But we love him, if it wasn’t for sending home kite pics from NZ when we had our behinds freezing off. Thanks bro…

Should work on the inner setting, I did the 10m on the wide setting of the 42-49, too stoked to take time to convert it to 42. The 10 flies like there’s no tomorrow regardless.

Yeah I currently have the kite on the wiser setting on the smaller bar.  I’m in that weird place where on 21m lines it’s sweet as but you lose a bit at the bottom including the lovely float. on the 21+3m combo the power is fantastic but I think I may prefer it being a little sharper in the turn.

The Pearl is Terschelling of course, not sure what Vlieland is but must have something to do with the back of a goat :D
If i had a 14m rise i’d be kiting everyday i think.

But back to the lines, how much difference would i make? shorter lines make a faster turning kite and longer lines make that it would have a little bit more low-end.

yes.
very fast turning on the large bar.
If you are an accomplished flyer, or wave rider the 11m with a big bar reduces the amount of input needed.
The small bar on the same kite needs the full range of input for that pivot loop.
I’m like’n my 14m and (11m BKB demo) and 10m on the smaller bar, 49cm.

Cheers Craig

Tough decision this one. Every now and then I find myself screaming at it to make the turn. The rest of the time it’s fine, especially as my riding is veering a little more to ward the wakestyle stuff of late where I find a steady kite beneficial. I just need to really commit when kite looping.

Hi. Recently bought a quiver of 2010 Rises - 6/7/9/11m. The 6 & 7m are awesome - stable and responsive BUT having huge problems with the 2 bigger kites - 9 & 11m. Find that both backstall badly (wind good), tumbling out of the air & turning inside out - kites then impossible to relaunch and need to self-rescue. Have never had these problems before with other kites and don’t believe this is to do with my kiting. Girlfriend also had exactly the same problem.

With other kites, after landing a jump where I’ve swung through only very slightly, the kite may drop just a little before repowering and recovering. With the 9 & 11m Rise, have found it impossible to recover the kite as it starts to drop. It starts wrapping in on itself.

Is this a known problem? Are other people experiencing this? Is there a fix?

Ed,
Something is definately not right if the 9 and 11 are doing this, they should be flying just like the 6-7.
I’ve never had a Rise turn inside out on me…are you sure you are putting 9lbs psi into the kite?
The struts should be free of wrinkles near the leading edge when you pump it up.
Another thing that comes to mind is the bridle…it might not be rigged correctly which would
dramatically alter the flying characteristics if perhaps it was assembeled with the wrong parts.
Give the OR guys some time to get back to you…or better yet, give Kevin in customer service a call
monday morning and he will help to trouble shoot this issue.

Hang tight buddy, we’ll get this sorted out for sure.

Thanks so much for super quick response. Agree that something must be wrong - 6/7 can’t be that good, then 9/11 that bad. Pressure - don’t have a gauge on pump but will get one. This is def one thing for me to check - very possible I under did it. Re bridle and rigging - are there any detailed specifications on lengths and attachment points?

Appreciate the help and will call Kevin.

Pump hard - always!!

Got the 11m and never had anything like that happen, even when I’ve under inflated it.

yup, me too.
thats why I think it might be some wrong bridle parts screwing up the angle of attack.
hopefully its something OR can identify and fix with out shipping them back, this sucks!
