I am about 190 lbs (85 kg). I ride both a mako wide and a dimitri pro comp. I am looking to cover 14-38 mph (+/- a bit). I most frequenly ride in 17-24, so I want to chose a kite for that first and then choose a lighter air kite and a high wind kite. I am wondering if my core kite should be 11 or 12 meters.
I like to ride well-powered for speed and big air. I usually have a quiver like 8-11-14 or 7-10-13. I like light bar-pressure (due to tendency to develop tennis elbow) and I like kites that turn fast.
Any suggestions from current OR Rise riders would be appreciated.
thats where I am with my 09's, my 10m is my go to really for 20-30, though if its over 25 gusting over 30 I go 8, oh the choicesfive wrote:I am a bit lighter than you and the 6-8-12 combo gets me out and comfortable in pretty much all conditions. I think the 7-10-13 might be perfect...but a meter difference on either side would probably be just fine as well. For your main kite, over 20 kts and I think you would be powered on the 10 m. Good luck!
