If you do not use the inflatable wing on water as well, it makes no sense to me!irwe wrote: ↑Sun Nov 22, 2020 6:09 pmI have both the original KiteWing (fixed Frame) and Wings (LEI)B-Roc wrote: ↑Fri Sep 25, 2020 2:30 pmHow do the kitewings manage in inland winds? I’m a kite landboarder who flies at the beach and I have borrowed/flown Skimbat KiteWings in the past on nuking days in smooth winds at the beach. Wings have interested me since the early 2000s for kite skating in the winter but I’ve never pulled the trigger and the new inflatos seem a lost easier than the old fixed-frame wings. Anyway, if I was to pair a wing with a longboard skateboard to ride in a parking lot, how would the wing perform and hold up? If it drags a bit on the asphalt, is it trashed or will it be in need of an almost instant repair? Do wings handle unpredictable inland gusts and lulls? My assumption is they would be easier to manage if I were to use it in a parking lot on high wind days when I’d just have to manage the lulls as opposed to low wind days when managing the occasional gust. Are they worth the investment or really only good on high wind or steady/constant wind days?
For Landboarding, InlineWing, WingSkateboard I use 4 m, 3m , 2m (72 kg)
The Wings rarely touch the asphalt if you are a decent rider and not working on extreme manuvers, it also depends on how tall you are.
I would recommend getting a 4 m (LEI) first unless you are > 65 kgs
It’s worse the money, you have to carry a pump with you and it could be easily damaged it you scratch with it over asphalt!
Such a cheaper WoW sails makes more sense to me.
