I can understand the need for a blowout valve in a 10m venom, as it’s a fast flying high wind kite.
But would a slow flying, slow turning low wind kite ever hit the water with that much force that it could blow the internal structure?
Good deals to be had on RRD equipment in the UK. I'm currently riding a Mk8 Passion, but want to upgrade as I'm finding the passion a bit sedate now. I was thinking of the mk10 obsession, but wonder if it might be a bit too extreme for my style. I have good kite control and general freeride ability,...
Hehe. My home spot. That surfer in the shallows at the beginning is me.
Aaron was ripping it that day when nobody else could stay upwind.

I had a 15m edge and thought it was a dog...light wind specific is the way to go... What year was that? I’ve gone from a 17 strutless to a 15m V8 edge. The edge is way better. It’s easy to fly, launch and relaunch. I’ve maybe lost 1 or 2 mph from the low end but it flies upwind and has a much bette...

I’ve got the ones on the other side of the kite I could copy, but they may have stretched/shrunk over time, so would like original length if possible.
