So today was solid 18 knots with sustained gusts to 22/24 knots. I put up my 7 north mono. Full depower and it was possible but kite was in full depower the whole time fluttering and jerky. It was not fun. Others on Storm 3 strut 7m and 6m RPM. Also very powered or too much power.
We had messy and choppy water with onshore wind waves.
I was really wanting a foil kite feeling, I had 14 sessions in a row on the hyperlink 9m
I think the 7m Hyperlink would be too much in this wind.
Normally I'm out foiling on the 9m Hyperlink when others are on 12m and 9m lei kites. So I would assume a 5m Hyperlink would equal a 7m lei in power??
I guess you are right. I will end up buying a 7 and a 5....
