OK,sounds good. :thumb:
osprey what is your weight please?
Also from the graph it looks like once wind hit 8knots about 12pm, it ramped up very quickly.
Would it be fairer to call the low end for you 8, 10 or 12 knots?
I'm thinking of getting one or 2 of these kiites, e.g. 13 & 8 or 17 & 10, 17 & 13 if I must,, so trying to get idea of the range.
If it helps to know, I mean range mainly with a surfboard, for a 82kg rider.
Yes, i am beginning to feel maybe a little jealous.
Enjoy and stay warm!

I weigh 165 pounds and was on 24m lines. If you are looking for real low end I'd of course go for the 17m or add line extensions. Your probably right, as the low end of the 13m is probably around 8 knots with a Paipo/Alaia/Surfboard. I rode the 8m Cloud in Maui right after I riding on my 12m Park and the big difference is the ability of the kites to pick up apparent wind. They also jump really big

A 10m Cloud would get you going in 12 to 15 knots. I'm going to purchase a 6m for the Gorge and a 17m for under 10 knot lunch time summer sessions on Lake Washington.

Upwind is so good. I'm heading to Panama end of next week so will give a report back after we get of the islands and will hopefully have some video and more feedback to share.
