Yes a15 in light cloth is to me a very good low cost 'beginner compatible' foilkite, with a very good stability and relaunch ; It is less agile and fun than Pulsion (and certainly Hyperlink) but does the job very well, at least in 9m that I have in my quiver (see http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php? ... h#p1007322 ) .
Interesting. I'm much less disciplined about rinsing salt from the balloon kites. Maybe I will start.downunder wrote: ↑Thu Mar 01, 2018 3:42 am
As above, splashing a kite with tap water after salt water bath is a go. No one talks about it, but salt is a no-no. Salt plus sand is a tube kites cloth and bladder killer as well. My kites are still super crisp after years of kiting (150-200 seshs/year 90% on 11m).
If your kite has no vents on tips, well, that is a bugger. Install one than and wash/dry properly every now and then.
