Hello again, I've registered as this seems a great forum and I couldn't edit my previous reply. So here goes;
Thanks, that's a good idea that hadn't been suggested before. You may have saved me waisting a lot of cash on a kite I wouldn't use. Do you think I should just hold out with the 11m then go for a 15 metre later.I guess I can handle about 15knots max at the moment on the 11m, how much will this increase in time?
At my weight and begineer level what would the max windspeed be for the 9m compared to my current 11m.
P.S I am aware of the sizing methods,
I rode Wipika kites last summer. The Free Air's. The Hydro is pretty close to being a 4 lined Free Air.
Your 9m will max out at 23-25 knots depending on your board. The 11m is not the huge kite some think. Yeah it technically is, but guys here ride 13m Hydros in 18 knots, no problem. Buy whichever kite you need the most next for your winds, 9 or 15.
