Ocean Rodeo Rise Aluula

Postby fernmanus » Sun May 01, 2022 10:09 pm

I bought a 10m as that is the only size that was available initially. I have flown it a few times. Two things that struck me as unusual 1. As mentioned by many others the frame is stiff with no deformation even under high load. So it boosts like a dream and inspires confidence. 2. The depower is not linear like other kites, pulling the strap in decreases the power more dramatically than other kites. I found myself pulling the strap in a couple inches instead of the entire strap like I usually do. Has anyone else noticed this or perhaps I was just flying it in crazy wind.
Anyone fly the 12m yet? I ordered one as we don’t get too many 10 meter days where I live. I would like to see this kite in a 14 or 15m. I like how it flies so much more than the Flite.

I had a 14m Flite that I rode in medium winds. The kite does not handle well at the upper end of its range. The kite was bouncing around all over the place. I fly large foil kites in light wind.
