Re: Size of light wind board?

I'm 225, I was up and riding with my 13m in 12knots gusting to 16 on 161 litewave wing, it's not bad in chop with minimal spray in the face. I was struggling to maintain ground and going downwind. I'm sure a lighter rider would of done better in these conditions. My opinion is that light wind boards...

Increasing wind range

I'm 225, I ride a 2011 cabrinha crossbow 13m and 10m, I'm looking to increase my lowend. I have a light wind board, which I am able to mow the lawn at 12 knots and up. Basically I want to be able to ride a smaller board sooner. It's been apparent that I can't afford a brand new light wind kite and m...

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 Zephy...

Re: Large kite with big wind range

Thanks to all for sharing their experiences with these large kites, I'm not looking to be the first or last one on the water, I was to be powered up on my 146 misfit, while the average 175 to 185 is powered on their 14s and 12s are well powered. I can manage with my wing, but its just not as fun. Ba...

Re: Large kite with big wind range

Can anyone tell me if I can use my cabrinha Ids bar on blade fat lady? Trying to talk the wife into letting me pick one up, but it would help my cause if I can save on the bar.

Re: Large kite with big wind range

I had a 17 taboo (2011). It has a big range. 75kg on a small 132 tt i could go from around 12/14knts... Onshore winds and waves sucking more power out too. I reckon it'd be good from 10knts with a bigger board and still water. The top end though was really good... 22knts and i could comfortably jum...

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Looks like a 17m would fill my needs pretty well, is it pretty much plug and play with my cabrinha ids bar or will I have to tweak the lines a bit.

Re: Large kite with big wind range

Core, best, cabrinha, blade are sold locally in my area, and could not justify spending 2 grand... give or take on something I could not demo. I bought my cabs on close out, I think I paid about 2300 for the quiver. Buy talking to local kiters and doing my own research I don't know how the justify t...
