Just out of morbid curiosity I'd love to see some nutter send that thing in 25 knots just to see what would happen.......

Could be awesome.

Hmmm.....

i would totally ride that with the wind blowing 25 knots. love to bid on it but the shipping charges on such a big elephant won't make it worth it to me. I have wanted a naish v4 for a while now. Talk about great exercise. Not riding it. I mean exercise pumping it up.

Are you guys too "young" - so you havent been riding 20-26m2 kites, which was "cool" back in the days ?

I can tell you then, that you WONT get much out of it, sending these in 25 knots.

You can jump much higher with a smaller kite, as simple as that :naughty:

If you somehow manage to get up high, you will have great hangtime though - but you will most likely not be able to get up there in the first place :(
These sizes became obsolete very fast, and even today bigger than 15-17 are not really used by anyone (medium sized) :naughty:

Agreed. Had a 25 gaastra Phoenix back in the day. Very fine line between having enough wind and not being able to hold an edge. No range! Still got it and put it up about a year ago for a laugh. Can't believe we used to kite on those kites..
