I am a heavier rider, ~230lbs, and my home kiting spot is the mid-atlantic, Chesapeake Bay beaches. The wind is light and variable which is one of the reasons why I chose the 21m.
HOWEVER - have yet to even launch and fly the kite at Zenith. I can't even keep it in the air and it's brand new!
So, two questions:
1) Anyone have any recommendations?
2) If I can't figure this out, I am ready to sell it.
Hi Gambo. Ram airs, like Flysurfer kites, are aerodynamically inferior compared to large light wind inflatables. It is unlikely you'll ever be able to really "figure this kite out". You'll find it will only fly in about 8 knots of wind and is prone to collapsing and folding etc. I'd strongly suggest option 2: SELL IT. Let me know if you'd like details re the aerodynamic inferiority of this kite.
