Cabrinha SB-II 8M

Postby airsurfer » Mon May 07, 2007 5:45 am

Anyone have experience with SB-II 8M . I'm interested in the usable low end. I'm 86kg riding 07 Shinn 133 x 42 looking for a kite for 17-30mph

Tx
:D

If you use it also for fun with the best lightwind board ever (untill now) which is the skywalker 135x47.5 you will have some great fun even in no wind !!!

No, i was stupid enough (once) to continue kiting when the wind picked up to 48 !!!

Dont suggest to try it for anyboody in this nuclear shitd !!!

I think the best is 25-30 knots.

But for sure i love this kite !!

Airsurfer, at your weight the sweet spot is 20-30kn.

Scott, Ellinas is telling the truth, I was out in gusting 44kn on a 7mXbow along with a mate on a 8m SB2. He's 85kg and we managed a 3hour session.

It was scary the first hour but then it was just freekin awsome, not to mention the 12ft ramps :o
