One interesting observation is that the windranges seemed to have increased considerably compare to the shaman can anyone from Gin comment on this . I mean did the kites become less powerfull for its siZe due to a new design.
Water vs. Snow I would imagine. :D

The shaman series 12 m topped out at 15knts but the new marbou 12m tops out at 21knts is that an error or some kind of magic texhnology .

Oh yeah, this is pretty big. Super glad they went with a 4 line bar for this one and not the Iced Bar.

I hope the upwind on that 12m is decent enough to make it usable with a surfboard as well as a foil.

I didn't see the chart you were looking at Windrider. YES! AMAZING KITE VOODOO!

Check the wind chart on the Hardwater Kiting site. They apparently haven't updated it on the GIN site.

Not magic, but technology. By closing the LE they should be able to depower more. Theoretically I think they could potentially move the A forward more than on a traditional foil. The closed LE depowered becomes like a High AR kite but with a large flapping flag section on the back which will pull it back in the window.

This is the wizard we have to thank? Olivier Nef. Who knew the Swiss did something other than good cheese :-) lol.
