Just been googling - seems to have the best wind stats too 50% above force 4.
Going to try take my boards though - might leave the surfboard though.

One week holiday in mid December

Leaving from Glasgow looking for cheapish holiday without too much travel - somewhere warmer with good wind???? Feurte, Morrocco, Egypt? Wind rather that warmth the most important thing (no not tiree either - lets keep it to summer suits)

Any other suggestions?

Why not a helix 12 as your bigger kite - same projected area - but higher aspect than cult and faster.
(that said I have just ordered 7.5 and 12m cult for myself) - Only want 2 kites and want to stretch 10-40knots on surfboard and TT

An alternative: Get a custom made Dereck in florida made my quad (same dimensions as lightwave a year before they came up with it .... http://www.dcboardz.com and the best is that the $ is so weak it worked out cheaper than a production for the masses board. He can tweak design for your style and we...

Naish Cult vs Flexifoil ION2

Has anybody used both of these kites? Just about to update quiver and narrowed choice down to 2 kites. Cult I can get for 2/3rds the price of the ION2's. Flexifoil 4 line system has great reviews for the wave sailing freeride I prefer but think the CULT might be as good (newer and cheaper) I sail qu...

Where are you based? I am in the UK but bought a custom from dereck at http://www.dcboardz.com It is fantastic and you get a custom for the price of a production board. I wrote a blog on mine http://surfing-with-kites.blogspot.com If you are near florida then I am sure you could demo or there might ...

Try a quad board - flatter rocker is quicker and floatier and doesn't get overpowered - I have been comfortable in 37 knots with a 7m. Make the most of the $ and order a custom from Dereck at http://www.dcboardz.com/ - no attachment to him I just have a board. If you have surfing back ground he will...

Finally down to 2. Airush Hammer bumping and jumping in crappy UK waves and custom DC Boardz from florida (UK buyers should buy now £$ rate is mental but good for another 4/5 months) this means quad designed for your weight is cheaper then standard manufactured board in shop. £340ish...
