OK so I got to try out my 3m in ideal conditions: pretty steady wind, too much for my 4m firefly. I weigh 90kg and ride an onda style wing on a strapless pocket board. I guess it was around 25knots - maybe a bit more.
The kite was stable in the sky, and I had enough power that I was up and foiling easily without any kiteloops needed. I rode comfortably out through some small waves for about 100m. Unfortunately I wiped out turning on a wave and managed to crash the kite. I don't usually crash my kites (I am using the 5m peak most often these days, and my firefly has only been in the water once, for about 1 second) but this guy moves fast as you would expect, so I guess I had not adjusted to the speed.
That's where the story ends: the kite relaunched with a bulge in the skin where I guess two cell walls broke. It was not flying well so I had to come in
In conclusion this kite has good stability and smooth power, but maybe not built well enough for 90kg riders. To be clear I did crash the kite, so it is technically my fault so I won't be chasing Pansh. But not impressed that the blow-out valves did not save me.
Edit: yes, two cells blown out. There is a zipper just at the right place, so should be an easy repair. (I had no idea that there was a zipper at this odd place on the bottom skin!)
