Everyone at the beach will be focused on you! If you want to be the man with all eyes on you this is the kite for you!
Very true! While you get dragged over the sand dunes, spend 2h setting up your bridle, or get rescued after your kite sinks.

Please do not fly this kite near birds we find they are attracted to all the strings and may try to take them for nesting purposes
It is reassuring to know this.

The new confusion is here!
Great name for a kite! Confusing to setup. Confusing to fly. And confusing as to why anyone would want to buy an inferior kite. Also, ram airs have been confusing and confounding riders for over 15 years: There's nothing "new" about any of that.
N7.....means...say No to 7 sq.m of limp cloth supported by nearly 50 thin lines
Handles and flying lines not included :cry1: says the advertisement

Boooring....why do you not take your disputes somewhere else. Posts like this do nothing but degrade kiteforum.
Intelligent people usually figure it out relatively soon that telling the same joke over and over again to the same crowd is not funny. Apparently there are some here that do not get that point.

Is it simply a matter of lengthening the rearlines or shortening the front?
Should I lengthen the Z line abit?
plummet wrote: In light winds on lumpy seas with big surf i'm finding the speed to be very annoying. The chop and swell slows you down so you cant get speed to boost. the slow turning and completely non existant down wind ability is a real pain in the waves. also when you do ride a wave upwind the extra speed powers the kite up and tears you off the wave face.... grrrrr.
I've come to the conclusion that it really is a flat water or land kite.

plummet wrote: Yes i also loop downwind. which is fine unless your on a wave and the wave is pushing you faster than the loop..... then its tack upwind or have an expensive pile of fabric get washing machined in the surf.

I've made it into pumpies propaganda speal several times!
I feel privileged to be respected enough to be quoted out of context!
Thanks pumpmaster.

PS still loving my speed3 15m. Waiting for the new speed 4 to come out so I can step into the latest foil goodness. Oh yeah.

So many people have jumped sinking ship tired of waiting for larger sizes SP4
So many people are soooooo happy with their larger sizes LW specific tube kites
It's crazy :crazy:

Word out is that....... total foil sales are plummeting

I'm going to wait until the N14 comes out with twice as many bridle lines as the N7!
