78kg.

If waves/side-sideonshore, often waveboard from around 17 knots and up, with a 9 and 7 and 5m2.
Occassionally with an 11m2 if sideshore and good waves in 14-16 knots only.


For light wind sub 13 knots as asked for:

12-13knots (actually up to 15) - 9m2 Takoon Furia (depower/wave kite) and Zeeko Makaira Hydrofoil Racewing or Freeridewing.

Only for lighter wind is bigger than 10m2 used :thumb:

9-11 knots - 11m2 Furia and Hydrofoil.

8-9 knots - 13m2 North Dyno, 28m lines, and Hydrofoil.

7-8 knots and less - Elf 15m2 Joker and Hydrofoil.

8) Peter

after many flights with the cabrinha contra 15 m I have decided to stick with it......at 72kg and a nobile flying carpet I can get out as soon as the kite stays in the air without having to constantly work it or it wants to fall out of the sky........



Nobsukao you need a nice light wind board to drop ur low end by about 5knots.

Thanks, I know that I can go out earlier with a lightwind board...


I owned a couple of LW boards, especially door shape,
unfortunately I haven't found the right one yet... :-?
