Cumbuco (Brazil) Kite Sizes ?

Postby al76an » Sun Oct 21, 2012 7:21 pm

Hey People,
I am going to Cumbuco the 20th December until the 20th of January...I will more than likely travel up the coast rather than spending the full month in Cumbuco.. I have been on the internet reading up as much as i can about my trip..I have read a few places that you should have a 14m kite with for this time of year..Is this nescessary?? My plan was to take my 8,10 and 12meter Bandit 4 kites using my Monk 135x42 board..My weight is about 100 kgs (after dinner :-)) so i am hoping that the 12 enough???
Hope someone in here has got some answers ;-)

Alan....

With your weight a 14 will be important to have.
Bring all. But I doubt you will be using your 8 a lot, maybe in Jeri few times.

might be a mistake if it stays dry ;-)
don't look at the forecasts!

Good luck and let us know how it went!
