Re: High Pressure kite by Bruno Legaignoux

Ah yes. There are single line kites like that! Focus on kiteboarding has gotten me out of flying single line kites which have a lot more diversity of designs. I forgot from my single line days. https://prismkites.com/product/eo-atom/ Kitexpert, how stiff are foil kites? Do they fold at the edge of ...

Re: Best 12 meter used kite for freestyle?

I have had a session a GP2 13 and liked it, my favourite kite is the 9 metre Fuel and been riding them since they made them. the kite had good upwind in the light conditions and had good power and steering, was 5 line and do prefer 4 so personal preference there. So if it is a deal you may well enjoy
