Hi Diogo,

I've never flown a Boom Kite, but I (83 kg) started Mountainboarding with a 4,9 ram air, which was more than enough on most occasions. If you are a really experienced rider, your 11,5 might be allright. Otherwise, start (much) smaller.
Take care
ciao

Hi Harald, maybe you already know all about this, but just to be sure we don't mix up things: being able to Depower or not, depends on the Kite AND on the control device (Bar/Handles). We are talking here about Ram Airs (or Softkites, or auf Deutsch: Matten). Open Cell are just plain ram air kites, ...

Hi chicagokitesurfer, I'm a 4-wheeler myself, and your question makes sense to me (and your answer in thread "MountainBoards for kiting?")also. Still, even if I haven't tried any 2-wheel board, I can imagine it has some advantages. As for the "slip out", it happens to me as well when I'm well powere...

Hi Squire, talking about US Mountainboards, I wouldn't forget Terraboards. Very light (13 lbs), good flex, and not too expensive. Depending on the surface you will ride mostly, Dirtsurfers might be an option, but they are heavy, unidirectional and expensive. Windscooters lokk sweet also, but I haven...

Hi Petro9, there is a thread on NPW's just "round the corner". I have some experience with ATB's and NPW's, but none on the snow yet. To your question: ""What winds can you use these kites in with a mountainboard and snowboard?"" As there are several sizes, you can cover the whole windrange. I found...

I started Kitemountainboarding with a NPW5 250 (4.8 m2). Now I always fly a KS4U 4.9 m2 (it's a ram air, same as the quadrifoil for buggies). Here is my opinion. The pull of the NPW5 is impressive, but definitely NOT smooth. Upwind performance is not to compare with that of a good ram air. They are ...

Hi Mark, I fly a 4.9qm ks4u as traction kite for a mountainboard. I started flying it with a bar (main lines in the center, brake lines at the tips)with the possibility of adjusting the brake lines during the flight, but not really in quad modus. It worked fine, but those kites were designed to be f...
