Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

Kite for the roller-coaster ride, and freedom from having a sail in front of your face all the time. Windsurf for the skill, the accessibility of different locations where you could never launch a kite, and the freedom to go wherever you want on any lake in any wind. Just remember that proper gear,...

Re: Self-teaching

if you want to teach yourself, like i did, only try and error it in LOW wind situation (max 15 knots with a 12 meter, just enough for staying upwind) and be sure that your downwindspace is big enough, with no abstacles... Good luck. In case of doubt: make it a no go, safety first! I am happy to hea...

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

EDT I don't have a SUP, but a Windsup. Maybe this can make a difference. It is an 11 ft long Bic Windsup , which I fitted with a longer fin to replace the standard Dolphin fin which was useless. I can easily bank on the rails to control it and it also has a centerboard which helps to go upwind. So ...

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

SUP kiting can't go as low as a race twintip for instance on a SUP you can't go in as light wind as you do with the flysurfer fly race twintip. The lowest wind kiting is done with hydrofoils which can go 5 knots lower than a SUP or a twintip. Even though a SUP provides a lot of flotation it doesn't...

Re: Ozone Uno for young, light weight rider?

I have the 4 and 6 Uno V2. I use them to fly witk my 3 kids - 10 14 and 16 ranging 60-115 lbs. Great kites to fly with kids both for land training and on water. My 14 year old is becoming independent enough in the water that soon the 10 yo will get to learn in the water. They also make reasonable i...

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

You are still trying to make your kite experience harder AND less exciting. No one teaches kiteboarding to beginners on SUP's for good reason - no one would want to continue, as they would have more fun with a paddle in their hand. I know your line of thinking on this. Lots of us, including me had ...

Re: Ozone Uno for young, light weight rider?

Hi I am a windsurfer. I never did kiting, but I'd like to start out. The Ozone UNO V2 6.0 m has attracted my attention as a beginner. It is relatively cheap and extremely well performing, from what I read , but the problem is that taccording to the reviews I have read it is a trainer kite for kids a...

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

Hi guys Has anybody actually pulled a SUP on a kite ? I'd love to hear from him or her, because I'd love to do it myself next summer with my Bic Windsup, but there are some who don't recommend it . I contacted Ozone in England to find out about their distributors in Canada or USA. Somebody replied w...
