Bow Kites and Low End

Hi What it the low end like on Bow Kites? I'm 6'4" and weigh 230 lbs. Also like to know how staying upwind and going far upwind is like. Two of the spots I kite in get pretty crowded so I like to work my way far upwind to get away from the crowd that is often full of out of control beginers. Also ho...

Thought this was forum about kiting.

I'll go back to my racism in the media forum to discuss racist kite design.

All you couch potato philosphers are just soooo smart!

Yup your right, but people like to discuss stuff with people thay have things in common with.

Cheers

It sounds like the rider's weight has a lot to do with what I observed. The Speed 17 rider weighs more than I do but I am not sure how much. I'll just have to stay away from doughnuts and big macs and I should be OK. Chris Go vegetarian like me. 6'4" 230 lbs eat loads of grub got almost no body fat...

I'll make this one short. Black makes you a looter white means you just found/borowed etc... "Welcome into the arms of America" Bono, U2 I work in the media.... it's biased, racist, chauvenistic and supererficial. Above all they want it like that. Remember in the US the richest country in the world ...

I have a Speed 17 and a Venom 19. The Speed 17 is far better than the Venom 19 in low wind. In low wind I fly the V19 on 45meter lines and I have only flown the S17 on standard lines (24 meters I think). There is no comparison. The biggest difference is the upstroke. In really low wind the V19 dies ...

Dakine Fusion

I have a Dakine Fusion.
Like the way it fits and sopports the lower back.
You can also get a Dakine bar pad.
There are also bars with the hook on a hinge that lets the hook swing up and down so that the bar doesn't twist up.

Cheers

Flysurfer Speed and Upwind

Hi I recently got a Flysurfer Speed 17 and I went from being able to stay upwind to racing upwind. The Speed goes upwind effortlessly. I now kite to different parts of the beach to find more wind or ride waves far from swimmers. The first time I rode the Speed was at Belmont Shores in Long Beach, CA...

Ride fast, upwind, better jumping/floating = foil Full safety, faster more direct turning speed = bow kite. Depends really what you want. I would not be too sure about the full safety on the X-Bow. I have read about lines getting tangled and the kite going into a death spin and not because of a bad...
