Feedback from 2nd Session on 10m Marabou V2:
I (160 lbs) rode the Marabou in winds the meters said didn't get above 15 mph felt slightly stronger to me. I was as Headlands Beach on Lake Erie, waves looked tame from the shore were mostly 2-4 footers with a fair number of 4-6 footers as well. Shore break wasn't too bad.
I went out on my big twin tip (149, not huge) and was powered very nicely, kite did feel kind like an inflatable. Might have just been me but it has fair but not obnoxious bar pressure, letting out the bar, it depowered immediately. I'm used to jumping with my Soul, this felt like I could jump with it with a bit more wind or a bit more skill...
I then went out on my Slingshot foilboard (Big-ass one Space Skate or something like that). Mind you I cannot foil board, the kite stayed in the sky, I never dropped it, lost it completely once, not sure where I let go but it auto zenith-ed and it was happy. So was I, I was plenty far from shore. The other foilboarders were on 5M Peaks and 8M Clouds.
I then put up my 10 M Soul for comparison. On my twin tip, I didn't have enough wind to jump with the Soul, similar to the Marabou. I was able to get up wind with both the Soul and Marabou on the twintip. The only other twintipper out there was a beginner on a 15M. My buddy showed up later, good kiter, he rode his fifteen too.
Plenty happy with the Marabou, it is a different kite than the first edition. They did a good job.
