5m Ocean Rodeo Storm works well in the Gorge especially Rooster Rock when it hits 50 mph. Not sure I’ve hit 50 knots though (57.5mph). It is rock solid stable with 5 struts and 23m lines
OR does not produce the Storm kite anymore . This was a good looking kite well built .

81kg. 6m Ozone Enduro V2 with Ozone 23m lines on Lieuwe Shotgun 136 x 40.5 Above 35 knots I don't bother. In 50 knots? Sorry, that's Storm 10, the OP is having a laugh! :lol: IrieJohn , I meant 30 gusting to 45 . There is no 50 knots steady winds here but frontals are strungs gusty winds .

Re: Self Landing Foilkites in 20+kts

For me the safest way is to drop the kite on the edge of the wind window at about 5 feet from the land and then backstall it and very important for me is to keep walking or running parrallel to the kite until the kite is straight downwind and then from this point I teather it to something rock soli...

Re: Self Landing Foilkites in 20+kts

Keep in mind that in strong winds , when you backstall a foil kite , the kite can and will invert sometimes if too much back lines tension is applied and this is a dangerous game . For me the safest way is to drop the kite on the edge of the wind window at about 5 feet from the land and then backsta...
