Re: What is your HF kite quiver?

Because there is no linear relation between wind speed and wind strength but quadratic one. So there same demand for kite sizes - big gaps between big sizes and small gaps between smaller sizes. As wind gets weaker kites needs to be much bigger 10 and 5 knots means 4x bigger kite for same power. Win...

Re: G10 wing replacement for fragile carbon

Hi,

Sorry to be little off topic. I have G10 wings and im thinking about carbon ones because of weight. Solid G10 is VERY heavy. Do your moses foil float?
