I dont know about kiting on a SUP, but a modern 2 liner could be a good light wind kite. I used to have a 4m Wipika and it was very powerful for its size.

Here in Kuwait it is very rare to have a wind speed of 20 knots and up, 10 to 15 knots occasionally and lower than 10 knots regularly.

I'm still a beginner and practicing flying/controlling a kite but based on the wind condition I can barely fly my 12 meter spectrum 2 and 16 meter m-80.

Any reviews or comments on the LF Havoc 16m? According to Liquid Force the windrange for this kite are from 6 to 18 knots.Image

and compared to an old kite like the 20 meter LF Spectrum 2.

NT - buddy here got a 14m Havoc ... he's usually out on the water not long after the Zephyr guy ... he does seem to dunk it in lulls though - but I'm no expert! :thumb: the 16m crossed my mind too ...

i am kiting with a guy that has a havoc 2009 16m. Its really good kite for low wind. Works different from zephyr and has about 2 knots different from what it seems. The main difference is that on lulls zephyr keeps a bit more apparent wind where havoc needs to be moved to generate.

But thats nothing if you ask my opinion.

I have Flown the 17 Zephyr and I own the 16 M LF Havoc....the Ozone is better in low winds.
Try and relaunch the Havoc and it is a beast. Sure the Havoc moves better, but once down in the water your ride may be over. The F one looks very interesting.
