[quote="b2ride"]When you say "the tips don't stall" you mean don't let the tips flare? Or don't oversheet the kite? [quote] Same thing, flared tips will slow the kite down in flight which gives ya a feeling of more power but poor upwind. also makes it slow in the up turn. pretty typical of all 16m k...

Nice spot that you mention but Im talking way further up the coast. That's not so subtle!! Good place for big aerials... You're braver than me if you've been out on the lh bombie - it's a long swim to Indo! Some unreal spots between cb and your spot too, if you've got a 4WD, and don't mind noahs an...
