i love my 2010 10m rise and mako kin. perfect for typical squamish days. What I am looking for is the low end light wind kite for cruising when the wind sucks ie Jericho 8-10 knots OR last years trip to Hawaii where there was no real wind to speak of.
I get that this wont be a tear it up sick experience, but im fat and old and i just like planing on my king when the alternative is sitting on the beach.
* keep my 2006 16m waroo and only get started when it’s over 13knots
* buy a flysurfer and hope it water relaunches like ive seen other do…
* go with a 15 or 17.5m OR flite?
What is the likely wind range for me (215lb intermediate rider on a mako king) for each of the 15 and 17.5m flites?
