Re: 17m lightwind Kite + normal TT or 12m Kite + Door?

There are lot of factors that go into light wind kiting on a TT or Surfboard. Do you have chop or smooth water? Do you have tidal/current flows? You will come appreciate all those factors with experience. Light wind kiting.... 1. Large foil wing and large foil kite will get you going sub-10knots. Hi...

Re: What's the thing with Duotone?

I wanted to do some boosting (and having watched Toby's stream of flight) and bought one 13m Rebel with 24m lines. It was a really awesome revelation how well these things fly and handle.

Since then I bought a few more with 27m lines. Wind blows .... BOOST!!!!

15 knots is hardly light wind!
True enough .... I ride a foil board below that as the fun factor is still high. My Cloud kite works fine in 8 knots.

Re: Light wind inflatable kite

Re: Light wind inflatable kite

Thank you everyone for your comments and replies! I really appreciate your help and imput since I am doing my research for a couple months already. To me flying high in the air is the true kiteboarding so instead of going after foil and wide door style boar I will go with 15 m kite. After I will be...

Re: Light wind inflatable kite

Based on the wind and level of fun (and addiction to kiting factor) ...... 8-10 knots - Hydrofoil and a 13m LW kite (no fun on a TT) 10-12 knots - Hydrofoil and a 10m LW kite, Door style TT + 17m/15m kite (some fun on a TT) 12-14 Knots - Hydrofoil and a 8m LW kite, Door Style TT + 15m kite (starting...
