Well it is a very wel designed delta shape 5 struts kite to start with and for it's size (17).... is quite fast and... in experienced hands... will turn real fast
They might improve the turning speed of the kite next year and if so.... an experienced big kite rider demoing the kite again...might just make it turn real real fast
It's not just about the kite but the bar handling combined with the timing of the surfboard ( in this case) during the turns on waves faces and on the inside
All has to come happen effortlessly and in the exact sequence to achieve fast turning speeds on big LEI
Takes practice ....yes...to get the better performance out of kites that size...and love them for what they can do for you
Now... hats off to this guy.....he's the fastest !!
