Re: Light wind kite advice

@joriws, or anybody else with knowledge of the speed 4.... Sort of offtopic: what do you think the realistic windrange of the speed 4 lotus 12 meter is? Fast TT, 8 kg rider?

Or6

Ps. I own wavekites in 4 to 9 meters, am looking for a big air and lightish wind kite for my recently purchased TT.

Re: Safety issue of connecting kite leash to the back or side of Harness

Always in front, though slightly to the side. I got pulled once, nearly broke my back... that's how it felt . Was very glad to easily find my release.

If you're being washed in a big wave, the last thing you want is a release pulling you in ways that disorient you even more.

Good question.!

Re: Speed of kitesurfing vs. windsurfing

We accelerate faster, but the top speed is about the same. That's me on a fast strapless surfboards and my windsurfing friends on wave boards.

Re: Wetsuit neopren boots not holding my foot?

Solution seems easy: switch to split toe.

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

Monofilm is too fragile, probably. Good point, though. One of the things I don't miss about windsurfing it's having that rig blocking my view.
