Re: Litewave Kick-S Reviewed

Hi Do-it, what weight are you? Why not use your 17m in under 14mph wind, rather than 12m? In hindisght would you prefer the smaller version board? I ask because I recently posted that as a heavy rider (250 lbs) I am looking for a board for chop when wind above 20mph, with my 17m. My usual board is a...

Advice please - Board for heavy rider in chop?

Some advice please. I'm on the heavy side, 18 stone, 115kg, and ride 17m Zephyr with a door style board. Keeps me on top of the water. However when the wind gets up above 18kts and speed and chop builds, the kite is manageable but the board struggles with the chop.. So I'm looking for a board which ...

Re: ozone zephyr 17m 2011 wind range for 100kg surfer

I was moving from a 13m Best Waroo and found the Zephyr slower obviously due to its size but very nice to fly, very stable and predictable. Easy to launch too once there is enough wind.

Re: ozone zephyr 17m 2011 wind range for 100kg surfer

I'm 115kg and have a 2011 Zephyr. I havent tried any newer models but my Litwave wing gives me 12 kts up to ~24kts. Havent used another kite since I got this and like you I cam from a 13m.

Re: Advice for a big guy

Hi I am similar weight to you and had the same issue. Now have a Zephyr as well and a door style board (Litewave Wing 154). Combination works well - I think the board has a bigger impact for heavies than the kite.. Agree with earlier post to point board just in front of the kite, bend knees tight an...

Best Helmet & gopro mount for kitesurf & snowboard

Santa delivered a gopro hero3+ which I intend using for kitesurfing and snowboarding. I am presuming that the best solution common to both is a helmet with cam mount - can anyone recommend a helmet which suits both these sports and takes a gopro mount? Or is there another mount that would suit both ...

Re: New Heavyweight group forum. Introductions...

6'4" and currently 250lbs but usually a tad less. 17m Zephyr is practically the only kite I use. Also have Waroos - 13m & 9m. Board Litewave Wing 153x45. Also first board was Best Spark 139x40 which along with the 13m nearly broke my heart before I realised I needed more oomph than the regular sized...

Re: Heavyweight general observations - kite size selection?

Yep for sure - kite size has to increase proportional to weight. I'm 240lbs and out on 17m when majority are on 12-14m. Bigger board too.

Re: Large kite with big wind range

Hi Windfreak - just coming to this thread late so you might have decided already. I am heavier than you at 111kg(245lbs) and also ride a Litewave (154x47 I think). Used to ride a 13m but spent too much time wallowing knee deep. Got an Ozone Zephyr 17m 2011 and have not used the 13m since. The Zephyr...
