I’m middle man 75kgs. The fears for me and the 11m was how close I was to the top end on Saturday (after the squall) at Vansurf. 25mph or so and I was lit. Fun though. Friday in 18mph was as sweet as it gets, plenty enough power to unhook (badly) and the kite gives you soo much confidence.
So 11m for me with another dilema later trying to find the right size to partner it. Sweet spot from just below 25mph to 30mph. I don’t mind fighting above that!
nice one colin.. im going to get shiney new diablos too. then we can swap kites at hayling and agonise over what could have been
Awesome Harry. Would have loved to stayed “hardcore” but I’m simply not good enough to get the best out of them. BUT a blast on the new devils would be most welcome. Especially as they’ve been redesigned since my 2008’s
Ahh, cool, thanks Col, I just wanted to guage where you were at. I’m about 13 (83kg ish)stone at the mo but should be back down to my fighting weight of 12 stone soon I hope. Just trying to get an idea of other people around the same weight as me are going for.
Ben and I taked a lot about it last night and Ben reckons either 11 or 12 biggest and 7 or 8 mid/small kite for me.
Richard, can I borrow that 11? I’ll pay postage :0)
Woody, I’m around 12st and the 12m is my main kite. I’ve got an 8m Rise on order and will report back when it gets here and I can fly the thing. I’m also hoping to do a back-to-back session with my 12m and the new 11m when the 11m demo comes back to the South-West. Of course, it won’t be as useful as you trying it out for yourself.
