i used with the options boots and a underground steeze 2010 139
bar 2010 20 m...
10 - 15 knots
upwind and doing ralleys and keepgoing downwind and than upwind no problem...
i put the the lines on the less bar preasure and the kite was flying fast for such a big kite
all the to blind that i try ended up with the kite on the water so relauch was piss easy
is more like a 16 m bow... i used to have...
now i have the 8 mts extensiosn for the 20 m bar...
and a 17" bar that is 25 with the 8 m extensios i am gonna go 32 for low wind and keeping the kite low
I ride an Starkites Exa 11m in light wind work well in 12-17 knots and I'm a 135 pound rider so heavier guy might try the 13m. might be worth something to look into. Also the the north is a awesome wake-style kite.
I have been thriving in light wind for the last 7 yrs. over the years I ve come to ride every light wind kite out there. In all of my years research and testing the Best TS 15m is the baddest light wind freestyle kite to date.
The switchblade doesn't slack at all. The RPM is a good choice but harder to relaunch. Core is nice but I can't stand the bar. The TS just makes a rider progress. It's light bar feel will have you throwing down back mobes in no time. I say that as a personnel experience, trying for two years and final stomped it on a 15m TS.
I travel a lot and notice most areas with windy conditions I've noticed locals won't go out when it's 10knots. I think there missing out, that's the time to dial in some new Wakestyle tricks.
Get out and ride in 10 knots! It can be well worth the pump!
