3.87 times the speed of the wind!!!!!Johhnn wrote:Usually, not very.
I went through some of my sessions from last year and found my best speed was 27 knots. Most of the time I am going about 15 knots.
On Monday I was out and felt like 15 knots was way, way too fast! It was really gusty and there were maybe 2 foot waves, so I would explode periodically. It was hard to maintain my balance because the kite was surging back and forth in the strong gusts. The wind meter reported 10-20 mph. I wanted to make a post asking people, "How do you go 20 knots???" It almost felt like I was doing something wrong.
For my best:
Wind: 3-8 mph (on local meter, reads a little low from this direction).
Speed: 27 knots (26.96)
Kite: Flysurfer Speed 4, 10 m deluxe
Weight: 77 kg (dry)
Foil: AlpineFoil XLP and AFB 50 (surf style board), strapless
Time Period: 2:18 - 2:32
