hq neo II water vs land windrange

Postby jcady » Mon Oct 11, 2010 7:23 am

what is the water windrange on the neo II im looking at maybe a 6 m for snow and water. I currently own a 14m chabrina contra 12m EH ripper and a 12m slingshot ranger. so i need something that goes from 20-40mph 40 might be a bit high but i want something that can at least reach mid 30s i weigh 150lbs. i have looked but haven't been able to find a water wind-range im guessing on water the 6 doesn't get you going at 8mph. so whats the real deal.

I weight about 175 lbs and can ride the 8m NEO II from low 20s (mph) into the low 30s on water with a twin tip. For my weight and riding style, I look to the 6m when the winds are in the 30s.

For your weight and assuming a high level of kite skills the 6M would work from 25-35mph. 40 mph would require very careful flying or shorter lines.This would be for a normal twin tip board. On a larger board or surfboard you could extend the range below 25 with very active flying. The 6m is a good high wind snowkite due to its ability to handle gusts and downdrafts in the mountains and resists taking on snow.

The Neo II will remain unchanged for 2011.

Hope this helps.
