Aero size enquiry

forum for kitesurfers


Postby Guest » Wed Oct 16, 2002 9:44 pm

I am 85 kg and I ride on a Wipika Eclipse 160. What sizes do I need? I currently have an Aero 16, is that a good thing or does it not match in a three or two kite combination? What do you guys think? I would like to stick with Aero though.

I would go for 10 Aero, 14X2 and 20X2. That's a very good combo.

But If you want to keep your 16 aero, I would say: 8, 12, 16 aero

Hey, have a look to the new AERO2. It looks like an X2 with a lighter low AR.
Looks great.
I've just get a 12, and i'm looking forward to testing this baby shortly.

I have a 20m AERO which I use for under 10 knots with a directional board.... above for a wakeboard.

I plan on getting a 16m AERO 2 and an 8m AERO 2 and maybe even a 6m AERO 2 ( for those "windsurfing winds" :smile: ).

I've also got a 12m X2 as this kite soooooo kicks ass!!

I'm 75kgs.... maybe you should get a 20 for those lighter days......
