Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

For those that have rode the 13M Cloud, what would you say is a sustainable high end not what you can take it up to but how many knots would it be where you can stay riding comfortably and not get pulled like a mad truck or being pulled out of a wave? Please also give your weight, thanks.

Re: Whose a weirdo and prefer upwind wave riding?

I agree with Windsucks, who cares what other think. I also think it depends on the wave, is it breaking left or right and the direction of the wind. I certainly have had fun going upwind and wave riding and I have seen others do it.

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

In term of the high end, it handle gust up to 20 on the outside, I didn't get pulled or anything like that but I definitely felt overpower at that point, keep in mind I weight about 182 and I was on a floaty board. In terms of building power, on the low wind all I had to do was sign a couple of time...

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Yes it goes upwind well, even a couple of times when the wind dropped everyone else was walking upwind while I was still riding and going upwind, keep in mind, I was using a floaty 6' surfboard and some of the other riders were on 12 and 14.

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Hi Pacuca

You definitely can surf with the 17, it turns just as fast as my 14 if not a little faster and what I really liked about it was that as I went down the line I could just park the kite and it drifted downwind with no problems.

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

I'm loving the 17M Cloud, besides what everyone else has added, I love the stability of it, even if the wind backs down to 6 mph I don't have to worry about it dropping like with my other kite, less is definitely more. Now, I'm trying to decide what size to get next, the 13 or 10. I live in San Dieg...

Re: Lightwind Kite! Any suggestions?

My vote would be for the Cloud 17, for your size maybe 13, I weigh 83 kg, I had it flying in 7 knots and riding on my 6 foot surfboard, I was going downwind but I was riding as soon as it picked up to 10 knots I was going upwind without any problem.

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

I also think because he let out his bar when he looped it, when I loop my current kite I will usually pull in the bar, in the other vids they turn pretty fast.

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

I'm surprised no one has posted this vid which shows the looping and jumping ability of the kite:
