Toby, can you really do a boardpass with 12 knots? I need at least 18. How do you do that without kiteloop? Real quicky i quess.Toby wrote:Today I tried the Rebel 18 with 32 lines.
Soft setting on kite, outside bar connection.
The kite felt really good, not too heavy on the bar and still turning nicely.
The wind was light, maybe 12 knots. I stayed easily upwind, could do jumps like Front 360 Boardoff, KickFlip and Boardpass. 93 kg and 128x38 board.
This could be really interesting now...having two bars, one kite and one board and maybe a range from 12-30 knots
Hoping for more wind the next days!

Those kites looked like inflatable Flysurfer Speeds, high aspect slow turning with insane hang time but they only made 13m max at that time. Powerful kites like Dyno is not for me especially in those sizes maybe 14m Rebel and get used to the faster turning. I like the idea of a fifth line going out on something big in too much wind for both for stability and safety.

I saw lighter riders riding it with 4 though.
