Huge Air pics!

Postby dirkydiggler » Wed Jun 09, 2010 7:44 pm

Thought I'd post some pics of some Utah water kiting. Our riders do it bigger, both on water and on the snow! Here are two of Jake Buzianis. Lets see what you've got!

Awesome!
What kite (model, size) is he using, in what wind?
Board size, rider weight..
I am always on the mission to go bigger :jump:
What is the best big air kite that you tried?

You were on a 14M in 32knots?

What model and year is your 14M?

Rebel 2010

I was lit, but controllable...and big airs...awesome session

But I could also do it with a C kite...you just need to go slow, edge hard, kite low, and a long depower!

I don't know all the specs, but from what I recall he was flying a Nemesis NXG 8m in winds around 30-40 mph with gusts up to high 40's. My guess on weight would be 185 lbs. He was riding a Balance wide series board, not sure what size. The pics were likely not close to the apex. I took them with my cell phone so it was hard to judge.

Show us what you got! I sure hope you are joking.
