The 2 guys who put me on to the Nugget last year both used 10's. Not for jumping with straps but for riding and slashing strapless. Everyone else was out on 12/13's. The nugget needs so little wind they used a size smaller than normal. I couldn't believe it until I had a ride on one. That was a good while ago but now got one at last. Small kites are nicer and way more efficient( to my mind anyway), so planing with a slashy board and smaller kite = fun for me. I will use tt in overpowered conditions though.

Nugget riders what is your favorite kite size for riding the nugget?


19m2 Core Riot LW XR3.....not only favorite ....but essential if you want to ride the surf where i live

Lots of 7-10kn days

Actually i had 19 of those days last month and would have missed them all without my set-up

In summary 22 days late afternoon kitesurfing for August in Florida.....86% on that gear...

True riding insurance for me :wink:
