Re: When is "Big" too big?

Thanks for the thoughts edt. And of course duh on me, keeping it low would be a simple precaution though not one I have had to use very often. In fact only once, in a beyond unusual gust.

2018 17m Contra Cabrinha

Almost new used 3 times. New condition very crispy and clean. No damage. Kite, bag, and basic repair kit, no line set or bar. Reason I'm selling is performance wise it is not much different than my 15m Slingshot. $1300 dollars shipping can be negotiated. Just purchased in September.

When is "Big" too big?

When is "BIG" too big??????? My backyard ( The Grand Mesa) is a mostly flat level mountain top with light to no wind most days. My first break through was my 15m slingshot. I can control and have a good time with it, in up to 21-22 mph winds at 10500' with me at 100 kilos. But more often than not ou...

Re: Fatality in France

Wow so much to read. Self launch/ not self launch/ fireball/ snapbuckle??/ First we all should do whatever we can to prevent accidents. Speak up if you feel conditions are not right by what you see and understand from experience. Having confused a waved hand to mean release, I have released a kite o...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

I have stacked them back to back inflated. Contra is bigger but not by much. I could lay them out next week. One is with me while I'm traveling. The 15 the other is at home waiting quietly to go to a new home.🙂. Contra flew very well just did not seem to be much of an improvement on the Slingshot. T...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Only having one 'new' kite in my quiver, until recently. 2016 15m Turbine. It opened up kiting for me. Giving me success both in water and on snow. My recent purchase of a 2018 17m Contra was supposed to be a bigger improvement. :roll: Not so fast! Turns slower, ok to be expected I quess, less pull,...

Re: First Foil

Wow too strange. For me my Kiting breakthrough was size,size and did I mention size. For the snow in my backyard often 10" + powder a 171cm Board made a huge difference. Than I got my 15m Turbine and never looked back. So if 15m was good a 17m should be better :o . This is the strange part. 220 #s, ...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Have sled will travel always looking for new adventure. I've been training for skinning but have never been able to use it for a back country adventure. Getting older, sled is preferred, though the monster almost killed me last year. Full flip off machine onto a concrete floor, no helmet. Stars came...
