Cabrinha Omega

Postby eightsmileys » Wed Nov 21, 2007 9:18 am

Hello there!
I own a 12m and a 9m omega and have a board 135 X 41 and weigh 90kg!
So i am considering of buying a 7m or a 5m! What size will you recommend?
The bad thing about the 5m is that i will have to buy a bar as well since the 9m bar suits the 7m (50cm) only. The 5m needs a 45 cm bar.
My level of riding is between a beginner and an intermediate rider!
Waiting for your suggestions!

My understanding of your message is that you are trying to decide on a very high wind kite. If you were going to choose one of the two I would say the 7m is your best bet and yeah you could use the 9m bar so you can save a little extra money. However, I think if you really are looking for a high wind solid performing kite you might want to look at the xbow 7m as it will handle gusty winds a bit better as it has 7 stuts and is a bow kite. If you already use the Omega in the 2:1 method the xbow 7 will feel right at home.

I'm also looking for a very high wind kite (30-45knt) for 75kg, dedicate to waves
Is the Omega 5m good choise ?
I did not find any review on this kite.

I'm interested by any experience with small kites, 6-5m in high wind and waves
