Hey guys, I'm just wondering what this is like? I'm wanting a light wind machine for teaching on those 10knot days. Do they relaunch easy, stable, don't back stale easy and whats the lightest people been out on them still riding up wind. Cheers

I teach with the Turbine and it works great, superstable and incredibly essy to relaunch given its size.

Here's some pictures of Turbine 2012, "in swedish". :)

I've had mine a couple of months now and I'm very impressed.

It's super, super stable in the sky and there's no back stalling. I can't believe how easy it is to relaunch - it's insane how easily it comes out of the water considering its size. I'm 85 kilos and seem to need about 12 knots to be able to do anything decent unhooked but I was able to keep upwind in about 9 knots the first time I took it out (and that was on my regular twin tip). For board starts and body dragging lessons you'd be able to get away with less.
