Re: High wind small kite with low wind stability

Yea no foils because of the gusty winds, I have to have inflatables...how does decreasing the line length do anything, that wouldn't help with lulls.

Re: High wind small kite with LOW WIND STABILITY

They aren't long lulls just quick ones....I've just noticed some kites in those quick lulls will stay in the air while others will drop out of the sky real quick....I'm just trying to figure out the kites that can handle lower winds without nosediving in these quick lulls when already at lowerwind s...

I'm thinking the new delta designed kites might be abl...

Re: Epic Kites 2011

Also, I don't think being maxed out at 16 knots is terrible because that's about a 1-2 knot better highend than t...

Re: Epic Kites 2011

Thanks for the quick response...It's cool to actually get a real honest response like that because other manufactures tend to be mushy with the details. Great catch with the inland lake having freshwater, thus causing me not to have the same float as pretty much everyone else. Your response gives me...

Re: Screws pushing through the bottom of the board?

Thanks everyone for the input, got busy with school which is why I'm replying now. But I tried the heat gun thing and that was impossible and the bumps wouldn't even budge, plus I didn't want to prolong the heat and damage the board.......as to the epoxy I don't even want to try that cause I think i...
