this is a google map.

yellow marker is sideshore, red marker it is offshore. where is the majority of the kiting? I assume yellow marker, and no-one at red marker?

It has been a slow start to the season but the last few days have looked very promising with blue skies and cross on NE's.
From tommorow the wind is forcast to pick up to 20kts and stay for a while

If you need info on other spots come to Vietnam Kiteboarding school at wax bar where i can give you any info you need. This season there is a new speed boat to do a tour to without doubt the best kiting spot in Vietnam, Phu Quy island where there is flat water lagoon and 30kts almost every day

The RALLY as all Deltas needs the bar to be cranked on to get it to whip around quickly. My 12 is as fast or faster than ANY 12 i've flown or seen flown. The RPM does have pretty good low end on the wake style setting as it sits deeper in the window. Rally has awesome low end and on a skim in 10 knots at 85kg i can't complain.
The kites come from the same genes. Fuel, Freestyle (no compromise), RPM Freestyle, more depower than Fuel. Rally Freeride, cruising, boosting ! (80% of riders).

That's fine, more kiteboarding days for me and that's true essence of a real kite adventure.
