You create horsepower off of these big fins and then start getting allot of apparent wind once moving. It feels like there is 15 knots of wind, when there might only be 8!
Be aware though that you can get moving in such light winds that you do not want to drop your kite. You might not be able to relaunch it, that is how light of conditions you can kite in!
Foil kites also provide lots of apparent wind, so I believe a Speed-like kite would be the prefect complement to your board. Furthermore, they do relaunch in light wind!
A couple of questions:
How easy to gibe are these race boards?
Any particular reason for the fins being perpendicular to the board as opposed to the more commonly seen canted ones?
I want one anyway! Can you get me one to Thailand ?
Or...how about coming to the first PKRA event this year 14th-20th March, and the first in Thailand, to demonstrate your board ? There will be a racing event.
