Hi

I tired a mates CO2 6m today and felt way overpowered in 4 line mode when fully depowered - could not walk backwards getting teabagged - wind meter said 20kn gusts to 25+ kn but felt stronger on the water. Has anybody riden a co2 5m or the aero 6m, is a toro 8m a good alternative.


thanks

Bill

These brands use different sizing methods. The Toro and Aero are measured the same way. The CO2 6m is more like the Toro or Aero 8m in ture size.

It might be a bad investemt to buy a kite that small. Those sizes are used in winds over 30 once you get good. I would suggest you wait for less wind and buy a bigger kite. You will loose a lot of money buying and selling a small kite. Buy used, there are always lots of small kites around cheap.
