My kids seem to like powerkiting with a 2.3m foil trainer kite and are looking (read: dad is looking) for proper gear for them.
I think I should skip the 2m tube trainer and go for a little bigger kite so they can actually kitesurf with it later.
They are light, 21-30 kg…
They would need perfect safety system (no stopper), short depower range so they can actually grab the bar again after the kite dropped (but at that range the kite should completely depower at that point and go to safety mode like the rise does when the stopper is way up)
I’m thinking of above the bar depower because of the ease of use for kids, smaller diameter of the bar, shorter lines, wow a special kids bar.
The below the barsetup would be doable aswell I think but then without stopper of course and a bit less throw. When I think of that I think it would be the safest way.
Slow small kites, 3,4,5,6 M2
Looks like the Rise or Razor ‘11 in small kids version with smaller ‘11 bar..
Smal kids board with narrow stances (Kids Mako would be superb!), kids Go Joe?
Any advice is appriciated. Also tips about the wetgear and harness are welcome (waist / seat)
Is OR working on Kids stuff like Epic is doing at the moment with the Junior Pro set? (4m kite and bar)
