Have you notice the little wind range of the Vegas6 12m??
If you are a novice level, 13knts to 16??? This is a wind range?? No
If you are interm. or advan., 13 to 22knts, come on!!!
If you are expert, 13 to 24, know we are talking
This data I took it from, http://www.northkites.com/index.cfm
With a bow 12 you have from 12knts to 30knts of wind range, and that is true!!! Because I have one.
My weight is 80kg, I have a 130cm board and I have a Switchblade 12m, and my old C shape 16,5m. I have 7 years of experience.
Sometimes with my Contra, I ride with 12knts and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really fun. But in some conditions I have to pull it down with 20 or less knts.
In the other hand my Switchblade 12 I tried it from the same 12knts, and in another occasion I tried it with 28knts with gust of 30knts, and I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe it, it was one of the best ridings.
For example another interesting thing, my wife weight 55kg, and she is starting right now in kite surfing, when IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m with the Contra, she is with the SB, and believe me she is not in dangerous situations in a 16knts day, or a little more.
Come one guys, what are you saying?? BOW kites are the next generation!!
