Re: Duty to warn

if you look at wind load in newtons F= 1/2 ρ v^2 A, where A is the area of the kite and V is the wind speed in m/s

regardless of rider weight, flying a 14m statically in 30mph generates the same amount of force as a 10m in 35mph and 7m in 42mph. However I feel like latter is practiced more commonly.

Re: struggling beginner.. can i take this route?

it took me about 10 3hr sessions to get up wind (i only took 1 2hr lesson) don't be discouraged you should go with your plan. the more u fly the kite and control the kite better the faster you will progress. And don't worry if you can't body drag upwind well, just start riding in an open beach. ...

Re: Lake Dillon Forecast/Forecasting help

yea the 3 times i kited there twice i got skunked and once the wind went from 0-30mph you can see the huge gusts coming down from the mountains. it was awesome when the gust hits but the overpowered fun only lasts like 30s-1min and then the kite backstalls and drops

Re: Kite Advice: Best TS vs Switch Nitro

TS is faster turning but nitro has a bit more hang time. Nitro has a bit more range, both kites need a bit of juice to have fun and both have really great high end.

Can't go wrong with either honestly. I've only flown the Nitro V4, the new Nitro 6 looks sick..

only takes like 5min longer to set up. totally worth it especially in nuking conditions with limited beach space and debris
