Re: Kites for 60kg girl - chose of shape and size (Slingshot example)

@1rdee

Just a comment that the 5m Rally does not have the large inflation valve that the 6m upwards have.

6m, 9m Rally + 13m Turbine sounds just right for a 3 kite quiver for what you want to do.

But if you want to ride in 12-14 knots you can use a 12m (albeit underpowered).
I'm 81kg and ride a 12m SS Rally in 14 knots no probs on a rockered 135x42 (Shinn Monk) so I think someone weighing 60kg on a flatter TT would be very well powered up indeed!

Re: North Zippers

Nor have any of my Slingshot bags ever broken a zipper. And thinking about, neither have any of my Cabrinha or Airush bags in the past.

Re: Where to kite in January

Barbados - used to live there part time. Wife loves it.

Will be there February 24th to March 7th and really looking forward to seeing my friends.

Would normally go earlier but skiing in Italy in January. Tough life. ;-)

Re: Hindenburg

Make sure you carry at least one easily accessible knife in case you need to cut yourself free (I actually carry two knives, one each side of my harness).

Re: Okay who of us is kiting in Florida right now?

The irony is that the reporter on the beach is more at risk from the storm surge than the kiter Seeing the underpowered kiter and the reporters hair was only being blown around a bit, to me looked like about 25 knots. If that! To be fair she did look to be standing in the lee of something shelterin...
