no demo's around here for me sadly. i am on older 7m hyperlink v1 ul and 11m v3ul. when it gets too much for my 7m, i must go to a 5m ufo. i have tried 7m ufo but still too powerful. i think that the 7-11 quiver is amazing but i often wonder if a 7 and a 13 quiver would work even better,,,, that 7m v1 ul can be used down to 10 mph i swear. in fact i love it at the low end.
wish it was easier to demo kites, sigh.
i sometimes wonder though how much i would really gain with a bigger kite than the 11m,,, i just can't imagine kiting in lower wind than what i can currently use the 11m in, doesn't even seem possible
The whole of the UK is in lockdown. Only essential travel is allowed... I.e. it's only allowed to kiteurf if you live locally to the beach. The lockdown rules start to be relaxed at the end of March though so hopefully I can test it then.
I don't think the 13 or 15m will give much of a low wind advantage compared with your 11m... the bigger kites will just allow you to use a smaller hydrofoil in low winds.
Hardwater Kiter,ReRide only works with open-cell kites. It is however EXTREMELY effective in high winds as the higher the windspeed, the more the internal bridle compresses the wing.
Hooking the inline loop to your hook or even a gloved finger
Yeah, the Hyper Link doesn’t come close to the Chrono for jumping. I have a Chrono V4 11m and R1 V4 9m. I have never dropped them in the water. The R1 is actually more stable than the Chrono, but I am nervous flying it in high wind as a big gust could easily snap the tiny bridles. I feel a lot better with the EXP 1 in high wind. It is built for heavy winds and the ability to shut it down in high wind is amazing.. Retraction…
Just followed my own advice and checked out the hyper link…
Seems like maybe the re-ride only works in open cell mode so, that might not work any better than the EXP for you, on water. And, I imagine the Chrono is better for jumping too so, good choice! Just don’t drop it : )
