Please mention your weight and board and knots.
Thanks u and be safe.
I just have found this interesting post, I thing its important to match well your board with your kite, a fast and wide modern board could do it horrible with a grunty C-kite o SLE, a less powerful but more forward-vector directional kite could gain some knots in the way.Mattdog wrote:I notice with some new kite brands people are saying, this thing jumps and floats amazing. But I am starting to think that if the profile shape (deeper draft?) of the kite generates greater upward lift for easy jumping, it sacrifices the forward vector of lift that generates a fast board speed. That is not a sacrifice I personally like.
I hear the Era is such a good jumper so I wonder if it travels forward more slowly by sacrificing the forward direction of lift as I described. I can't demo one where I live so I am looking for some feedback.
My waroos have very good forward board speed that I like. This of course also helps produce more apparent wind, the faster you are traveling, and that improves the low end capability of the kite, at least for staying upwind.
So how does the 12m or 14 Era compare to the 13m waroo in this respect?
