Last time on water I was forced to use my slightly forgotten WH smoke, working mainly on raley to blind (so far without success) and other simplest UH stuff. That means I was crashing a lot and one thing really annoyed me:
I was riding on suicide setup and the kite really had some decent pull when sitting on the water waiting for me to put my sh*t together after each crash. It was almost little too much, which is really something I was not used from SS RPMs.
I know there is an option of double depower setup, so I'm thinking of trying it next time. Of course I'm not willing to go stock safety setup way, that would be too time consuming for relaunch. Is anyone successfully using this setup? If co, can you describe how it feels, positives and negatives?
Also, what's the best bridled setup for UH riding on WH Smoke ( tried single attachment, but did not like it for our gusty wind)? I think I was using it on Downwind/Semi fast setup and my pop was nowhere near the pop I get from RPMs using the same board. Of course I have spent "years" on RPMs but only have handfull of sessions on Smoke so far, so I'm sure there will be some learning curve.
