I am not a big fan of having a large quiver but I think I may go for 3 kites. Zephyr &12m & 9m C4. Although, by adding an 8m2 C4 for 2011, Ozone has made my life more tricky (such a luxury problem, snifff...).
So,will it be Zephyr 17 and C4 12&9, or C4 11&8 or C4 12&8?
I think the first one. Although lately we had nuking winds and I missed a small kite (7 or 8?).
My weight is 98kg (220lb), 1,98m and 135/42 board.
Hi , I had the catalyst, together with a Zephyr, I have 82 kg,
My range was Zephry..followed by a 12 , 8, 6...
This year it will be Zephyr, C4 or catalyst 12 8 6....
I had a good time on my Sector 60 free race board ( directional with 4 fins 174 X 60) with the 12m C4 in lightwinds like maximum 9 knots...While a german guy was on his Flysurfer 21m
and a DOOR, he could not believe I only had 12m on ...due to the fast kite, I had a lot of fun!
Just my 2 cent
