Re: 5m or 4m?windrange and sweetspot?

I am 80kg and my 5m LEI is good until 30kn and not higher. 4m is my guess for you at 25kn plus.

Re: neoprene boots/socks recommendation

No booties are best booties... these soliteboots are by far best a ever had. they have couple features that make them very different and much better Thermoformable - they are really custom for your feet From inside they are not fabric but "rubber" means - your foot is locked inside - no slipping in...

Re: backstall on smaller kites

I recognized the same on my 5m Cabrinha Radar from 2015. Since it is my smallest kite I often ride it a bit overpowered and so I guessed the small frame of the kite deforms more under the load.

Re: New pro Gong foil wings?
