Hey Toby, I just watched the movie "Volare", great jumps and hang time. What kind of wind strength were you in and what size kite were you using. Thanks........... Don

Hi Don,

thx!

I used the Deluxe Speed3 19 and 15 on the Cauipe lagoon where you see many kites as well. The longest hangtime is with the 19. Wind 15-20 knots.

On the other part in the river mouth at Ilha do Guajiru where you also the a fisher boat I used the 15 and 12 Speed3. Wind 20-25 knots.

Hey Toby,

Great movie, I really enjoyed watching it. Huray for old-skool!

PS: :idea: Get a hair cut... match the length with the places where it will probably never come back again :wink:

Oh my GOD, no wonder your getting such long hang time. Is there something special about those kites that allows you to use such large size in that amount of wind ? I've never tried ram air style kites......... Maybe I should !

the kites do have an impressive depower due to the triple depower system on the speed 3 (also available on the psycho4). This means when you push the bar away the kite actually beomes more C shape so projected area is alot lower (around 15%-18% lower). check out http://www.flysurfer.com
or for more ram related antics

Don: the more powered you can go out, the longer you will fly.
Therefore a kite with a good depower is needed.
And also the technical skills to handle it (I am riding very powered since 2000, when I started already with 2 line kites = 100% power)
