Re: If you have to trim your kite your over powered!

7m pretty too powered in 35? It depends on what you want to do with the kite. I was out recently in the OBX and one day we had winds that were about 35-45 with some gusts higher. I am 195lbs(88 kilos) and I was riding a 4.5. It was the most dynamic kite flying I had experienced to that point. I coul...

Re: If you have to trim your kite your over powered!

7m in 35 plus? I hope your boosting huge. A 7m in 35 is very powered up and hard to aggressively fly. I have not read all 11 pages of this thread but there is a general misconception in kiteboarding that a 7 or 9 will cover the top end of most riding conditions. Sure you can survive at the top end o...

Re: If you have to trim your kite your over powered!

I ride 2 kites currently. a 15m foil which goes from 10-30 and a 9m fuel which goes from 18-40 (at a guess) I have a 13 Fuel but haven't flown it yet, but I imagine it will sit quite well in between. If I need to depower, then I need to change kite because the next gust could be the one that owns m...

Re: Hooked in kiteloop/megaloop advice- rpm users

i do not do a full down loop after the initial kite loop. Once the kite has climbed back above me I do a quick half loop and point the leading edge of the kite into the direction I am traveling. This does not slow me down but enables the kite to continue to travel downwind with me. The only slowing ...

Re: Hooked in kiteloop/megaloop advice- rpm users

i am not claiming any Mega loops but I am having success with loops of this size http://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r15/jensmadwind/IMG_8172-1.jpg 8m with 20m lines. I was having issues landing hot when I looped the kite too early in the boost. It looked awesome but I ended up going so fast downwind...

Re: Slingshot Rally or RPM?

there is no doubt that once the wind starts to jack up past 30 that things get a little intense on the beach and in the surf . this increase in intensity is nothing to snuff at. You just don't do anything with a smaller kite that you wouldn't do normally powered on your 10( with some exceptions). On...

Re: Slingshot Rally or RPM?

the RPM far surpasses the Rally for unhooking. The Rally requires finer tuning at the bar to prevent backstalling when unhooked , the expression on my face in this picture is my reaction to a 8m Rally backstalling and damn near falling out of the sky mid pop. i have never experienced this with my RP...
