when the kites get out of sync it's all bad, the smaller kite tries to outfly the bigger one, and can catch a tip in the stack lines, or fly foward, luff and invert, then pulling the other out of the sky..!! Also, don't go out of your depth of water, waterstarting in that much wind is impossible!!

I think my 18 X2 and my 12 X2 would give Blown aways 20m Aero a good run for it's money even on a wakeboard :wink:


Yep it's got more grunt than my 20m AREO but I can still relaunch my 20m AREO in that much wind... no hope in hell with stacked X2s... I was also only using 20m lines...

And besides... what happens when I start stacking AREOs... red AREOs.... yummy!!

I've stacked two X2 20's and they pull like a truck in 7 knots. Used standard 27m lines and the 7m between the kites.

That arguably must be the most powerful setup that anyones kitesurfed with... It's definately the most powerful setup that I've heard of...

If anyone has tried a setup that's similiar in power than let's hear it!!
