i am 100kg. Had the 11m and sold to a skinnier friend who has a 4, 5,and 8. His words were that the 11 was not as fun as the 8 but allowed him to ride when he could not go on the 8m. If you were bigger i would say the 13. But i will say this, the 13m is no slower turning than the 11m and I have heard a couple of other people on here say the same thing.
I loved my 11m and love my 13. They are very niche kites for me. When it is under 10 at my size, I use them to get started. I have learned to send them the other way while i am going the other way to let them pull me around. I also find kiteloops keep the tension and power better for me in low winds.seppalord wrote: ↑Tue Jun 30, 2020 10:24 pmI foil at a spot with very nasty start/landing place, big trees with a lot of slipstream. With every other kite this is a nightmare, but with peak...easy peasy.
That's one reason why I want to reamin faithful with bigger sizes, despites its drawbacks. The pros outweigh the cons.
I'm also handicapped to my 21m line length due to the obstacles and I'm no friend of long lines.
In my opinion the gap between 5m and 8m is ok, but I don't have as much flying hours to fully comprehend.
I guess I have to try the 11m, no other way around.
