Hi there,

Does anyone have any idea what line length the top guys are using? :)

Thanks

Can't find it now, but I remember reading a while back that the line length depends on the kite they are using. Longer lines for big kites, standard length lines with smaller kites. Around 35m lines for the 17m - 18m kites in less than 10 knots down to 22m lines with the 9m kites.

I was told by someone that they actually use very short lines even on the big kites, unless it is under 8 knots than long lines, I think that normal line lengths, but if can't get going than long lines, bigger things to worry about!
