Yeah wasn’t one of my best judgement calls, enthusiasm got the better of me.Kristan wrote: ↑Sun May 09, 2021 3:40 pmWell damn, you went out on a big wing you have zero experience with in wind of 18 knots. I don't know why have you decided to ditch your 12m LEI for that wind, because for me I'd rather grab that kite for such wind. Hell, I'd grab 12m LEI if there would be 14-15 knots. It just looks like you're aiming to be overpowered on purpose because as you think that is what it means to have fun kiteboarding.
You’d really take a 12m LEI in 15 knots with your 100kg weight?
Well the jury isn’t out yet, I might sell the 15m later and get a 12m, going to note down how often the wind is gusting, and how I’m able to handle those gust over time. I live in a place (Netherlands) where wind tends to gust allot, a 12m foil would be more suitable to handle those. Time will tell, Will keep updating this thread.
Tommorow another session planned, 14 knots gusting to 20...
