Re: Traveling with Lift 170

The modular Lift Surf wings are thicker and have more lift than the Classic wings. Therefore, if you are considering the Surf wing instead of the Classic wing for kitesurfing, you may want to consider sizing down to the Surf 100 or Surf 150.

Re: whats in a Y!

Hmmm, I fly Neo's in 12m, 9m & 6m sizes. I'm using the Duotone Click Bar with the high Y removed. As others have mentioned, I find it easier to self land in the low Y position and I didn't care for the line cleat wrapping and tangling lines when self launching. To me, the Neo performance seems equal...
