0kn on the beach as the wind started at least 5m from the ground due to the cold spring sea
Yes that's why !!
And you don't need always need a foilboard to experience that...XL door or LW directional works in mirror
If you have a big kite 17m & up and recognize the exceptional low water temp vs warm air flow it will happen for you too...just hot launch your kite and feel the power once the kite is up
Spring time is normally best time of year for those magic sessions
During hot summer with several days of light side shore wind it can cause an upwelling in the ocean...once water temp went from 88F to 70F overnight..cold sea made the low wind very dense
A session 8 years ago on SP3 21 & XL door mirror ocean...2 knot air movement at kite on sand..once up 9 knots...on the water more juice 14 knots..pulled 3m airs & had to pull the depower
Sorry no video... there was no one around... cause the wind was dead !!
No more ram airs for a while now but i do get about 3 of those special sessions a year with large LW inflato and LW quad surfb
