..........Honest question as I haven't tried it. Is it worth the spend????????????
Good question... one of our local shops is bringing a 19m SA2 in so we can test it, I'll let you know what I think, at this point my opinion is that it is not worth the money for a new SA2, however for the normal fabric maybe, or a second hand SA2 maybe for a second hand normal fabric for sure! Lots of people must disagree with me because there is currently quite a demand for the SA2(6-8 weeks lead).
The 17m GK in the video does not impress either, I don't believe you can do a proper kiteloop on any kite in those conditions you will land long before the kite has even completed 50% of the loop, the guy does not look very big 70kg or less is my guess? I think you can do much better with a 15m Speed2 even with normal fabric.
Is that a production kite or still proto? Maybe they are still tuning it a bit?
Is it a light wind spot because there seems to be quite a lot of kites out on the water for such conditions, I suspect the wind probably more 12 than 8kts
