Big kite bag with smaller board?

Postby Whattheflock » Wed Dec 18, 2019 12:06 pm

Hi Everyone,

May be a silly question.. I have a 190cm Kitebag that I used for a big foil board but now have a much smaller 140cm Foilboard. Could I still use that kite bag with my small board??

What I noticed with my 165 bag with wheels and a 140 twintip is that walking it becomes annoying.
The last part of the bag has no "rigid support" from the board and sags/bends.
This means you have to take the handle really high to keep it rolling. If you need to walk any significant amount that might become super uncomfortable.
Easy to test this at home since you have the bag already.
