Re: choosing twin tip size you give more importance to your weight or how much you are overpowered or underpowered?

Really good questions. I started with a 12m and 144 TT and as I progressed I bought larger and smaller kites. 8-19 I also experimented with boards, shapes/sizes/thickness.

Re: Cabrinha Contra 2016 in 15M review ?

Love my 2016 Contra 15. It is a good kite for 14-18kn for me. It is such a smooth kite too. Handles really well. I also have a 17 and it is also a great light wind kite. Contra and Switchblades...My quiver.

Re: Leading Edge Bladder tips blowing out

I had a couple of similar issues. I deducted that it was either the way I inflated the kite or packed it away. When inflating make sure that the bladders fill without creases or folds. Roll the kite right out and slowly fill. When packing away make sure the air is removed from the bladders when roll...
