I strongly believe you guys need to go kiting more often especially in stronger winds.


Dimitri check out on previous post cat video i found that outsmarts a dog surfing across a pool :D

The strong wind is forecasted for us Friday afternoon f NE 22-27kn with waves 5-6ft :surf: :surf:

By the way very nice strapped ZERO BS surfboard jump....I APPROVE THIS PHOTO :wink:

And furthermore i give you this :winner2: ....you got me beat in height by "2-4" feet :thumb:

Actually it is more like WORD WAR III happening of this thread :rollgrin:

Really looking forward to his video

Ok I'm back and here is what I have to say:
Just to make it clear I'm very selective what I'm testing for light winds
and if there is really any benefit over what I already have.
I never drop my 21m in the water…I happened only once in 2 years.....
My FS 21 was just glued to the sky last Sunday in 4 Kn, even if it's not enough to ride,
but it was enough to body drag for half an hour until it came back to probably 5 - 7 knots.

So there is no point to test or buy another kite until I know for sure,
if there is a better design, much lighter weight, perhaps faster and more pulling power with a smaller kite.
And that's the reason I said;
"I'm going to send the 17m 4.5 lbs Strutless against my 21m and see what happens" :lol:
In my opinion today pretty much all Inflatables designs are good
and there isn't much radical difference between Brands since the Bow Revolution :argue:

@frankm1960, I don't think you should wait on me :!:
but maybe you should develop a light wind skill yourself like Dimitri in 2 - 4 kn SUP-ing
and prove it for yourself and everybody it can be done with your weight :idea:

The reason is It's You Not Me;
Because my testing value and creditability doesn't count and doesn't mean sh!t here :kiff:
Why :?: Because I'm light weight 130 lbs, that's why :!: :!: :!:
According the experts on KF here and from the past :bye:

Ozone Edge 19m released: http://www.flyozone.com/kitesurf/en/news/headlines/21139?source=rssfeed

clip clip here ^----%<----v

We have been testing the new 19m here in Raglan (New Zealand) with race boards in less than 5 knots, and she’s a monster!


Less than 5 knots (if we use natural numbers) is 4 knots.

Oi Pumpy! Right about now is the time you want to clearly define what you mean by "No kite can perform in under 7 knots" cos the rest of the world is laughing at you. Again. Over and over again, in fact.
