is there anyone, who have this size of 2 kite quiver. Now I have for several years quiver of two kites: 7 (rebel2007 7m2-for wind up of 23-25 knots) and 12m2 (north vegas 2008-great kite ! ). But with this kite I have problems in gusty winds and windrange is not so big. I need a kite with bigger windrange to cover most of conditions on my spot (from 13-30 knots) .
This year I would like to sell this Vegas08 and buy new one-10m2 C-shape kite, (vegas 2009 or 2010, or Torch2010) but I dont know how much low wind I will be lost with 10m2 ...(with my 80 kilos and board 132x41-great in low and high wind conditions). there is a link of my kiteboards:
I am 72kg and use fly rebels 7m and 10m. Its a perfect combination for a 2 kite quiver for me, but i ride mostly in waves. Just be careful if you are going to use different brand or different model kites as the sizing may not give you a true comparison. For example, a 10m Vegas is not going to have the power of a 10m Rebel just based on the design.
yesterday I had great sessions on my 12 vegas (wind: from 15-26 knots), but in this conditions was sometimes too much wind for unhoocked tricks. so maybe is 10m2 really better choise...
and for the end...my vegas was yestereday "exploied"...-the leading tube. when the kite fall on fifth line safety in tho the water. My kite was in the water last year very rarely in that way. (north "quality!!!")
now I have to wait, what will importer say...because I have on this kite 2 years waranty he said, when I bought this 12 vegas. we will see...
