calling PERTH-kiters and especially boardbuilders!

Postby Guest » Sat Jun 28, 2003 5:15 pm

i´m going to perth in october.

i´m going to buy a custommade board, who makes the best ones and how much will it be?

i´m also gonna buy a new kite. i have 12 and 16 and i´m gonna buy a smaller one. what will i need? should i buy an 8? or maybe a 9 and 6? of course the latter is better but is it worth the money?

how money days of kiting do you do per month from october to march?

Throughout this period, on average, you will be kiting about 5 days every week. :thumb:

hmm, but 20-25km/h isn´t that much, it´s just around 6-7m/s which 12-14knots.

that´s the lower windrange.

Bring on October :D - this is when the the goodwind starts to blow till at least March - April. I had a go on an Addiction board recently and was quite impressed - nice board. I am 70kg and use kites sizes 7.6 - 10 and 14 that get me out most days :thumb:

On an earlier thread I said,

You said,

.....which is the windspeed at 3pm averaged out for the month

So...If it blew for 20 kts for '5 days' and then no wind for 2 days......then the average wind would 14kts.....get it....bit confusing hey??? :dance:

Regardless, its an awesome place to kite especially between October - April
