Now wait a minute, the air is denser when cold, sure, but is not that same cold and dense air pushing on my wind meter. Of course it is. What is probably happening is a difference in air flow over water when the air temp and water temp diverge.

If you are "powered up", never put the kite overhead on land. When launching, always keep it off to the side toward the water.

It is my understanding that a potentially weak piece on the NSI Reel Lease has been replaced with a stainless steel part. This seems like the only option to have a 10' leash w/o having your leash dancing like a bull whip (unless you are into that). I have one on the way.

Cabrinha Flamers, what gives? This is a new and excititing sport which is evolving quickly. Some people just seem to be so insecure that they feel the need to flame everything other than what they happen to be ridding. If your going to go off, at least don't do it anonymously, that is lame. As for t...

Something I don't hear many people considering is the aspect ratio. I regularly run my Cabrinha 12.2 (16.5 Flat Naish Sizing) when The Naish guys are on 20 meter Aeros. Most of the lift comes from leading edge of the kite. My 12.2 generates a lot more power than a Naish 16 because it has more leadin...
