Congrats to Aaron on winning again. This time he was on a 16 m PL VII by the sounds of it. Must have been a bit more windy than last years final. Great guy with a full time job and kiting for the love of the sport. Good on him. Anyone get to check out the contest?? :thumb:

Sweet. The PL's seem to be great wave kites in that when you stuff it, it just sits there waiting for you.

Albeit I wish they were faster turning and more low end. :wink:

Congrats!

Yep, have to agree. I, unlike many others, like super fast turning kites as well. All size PL's are fine for the flat water, defined point break with good wind direction and jumping sort of thing. For pure wave sailing the smaller V's are great and the new scorps. Wish they had Answer turning speed in larger sizes...but... it is a give and take with performance and user freindlyness...blah, blah....The new larger scorp is pretty quick with decent grunt. Hope the next PL water kite follows in that direction.

I was in hopes to hear about the contest. Was it a point break, etc....The AU crew are the top when it comes to water sport comps. Aaron used to kill it in the old lifeguard comp series. When we would compete against the AU crew, they would kill the USA in board and surf ski skills as well as most other events. The society seems centered on beach sports year round in their perfect conditions, where here it is just a momentary summer amusement for most. In Au the chicks actually come to lifeguard comps. Well,,,,, at least the younger ones not looking for a new Porsche...
