Re: Best massive air kite for 30 + knots? old Raven lover...

I ended up getting a 7 m Draft, only tried it in 25 knots so far and it jumped pretty well (I weight 60 kg), it seems like it will easily handle 35+ though, looking forward to the full moon. It certainly is a slow turning kite, and does jump real easy, hang time is pretty decent given the fact that ...

Re: Best massive air kite for 30 + knots? old Raven lover...

thx for the input Russian

yeah proper timing with an incoming wave and hitting it with decent speed makes a big difference in terms of height i think

what are your thoughts regarding line lenghts and high jumps with 7 or 9 m kites... 20 or 24 m lines?

Re: Best massive air kite for 30 + knots? old Raven lover...

Hey DImitri, thanks for the input and the video, I wish I had seen that like 10 years ago, it would have avoided a lot of bad landings, particularly step 4 :thumb: Also,I noticed that if you push out the bar about 3 meters before landing, and pull it in again all the way about 1 meter before landing...

Re: Best massive air kite for 30 + knots? old Raven lover...

thanks for the input guys Taut: I was mentioning a set of replacement bladders because no-one here wants to repair an octopus system (my issue was popped leading edge on the Raven). Gunnar: nice boosting on that 7! thanks for the tip, I'll take a look at the Fury also Dirk: Kevin was on a 10 m Torch...

Re: Brazil? What to bring to sell?

certainly is true, I know quite a few people that do it every year bring smaller size kites, 6 to 9 m. the cheaper it is, the easier it will be to sell, but don't go for unknown brands tell people as soon as you get there, local kite-schools, kite instructors, post flyers in the hotels and it will b...

Best massive air kite for 30 + knots? old Raven lover...

Hey guys, I'm looking for a high-jumping, great hangtime kite that will handle nicely in 30 to 35 knots :D I loved my 2006, 8m Naish Raven, it got me nice and high and stayed there for quite some time, favorite all-time kite. Only issue is that after crashing it a few times in the waves, no-one in B...

Re: BRAZIL in October - Paracuru, Ilha do Guajiru and Jeri

for Jeri at that time of the year you should indeed expect 25 to 30 knots between 12:00 and 3:00 pm which is the peak time here in Prea & Jeri. It is usually less windy before noon and it does slow down a little bit after 4:00 pm.

Re: Cheap spots in north east brazil!?

You might also find more details in a previous post called "Brazil on a budget" from a couple of weeks ago.

It has tips on apartment & house rentals and wind information about several spots along the coast.

Feel free to pm or email if you have any specific questions.

Cheers, :thumb:
