Hi guys,
I've just finished my kiteboarding lessons and unfortunately is no more wind in Walvis Bay, the place where the wind was born and raised strong.
Maybe is my imagination but this is the longest summer ever here , hot days , worm and calm evenings , romantic sunsets at the lagoon , what a disaster for a kiteboarder!!!!
Winter ! Cold strong NW wind ! That's Paradise!
I'll ride LF 09 Havoc kite and 141 Proof board, is anybody there using them? What is your thoughts about this setup for a beginner?
Hope I'll learn a thing or two from you guys.
Liviu

I've just got my 12m Havoc 2009 but I have also 2005 Spectrums , can I use the new bar with the old kites?
The old bar looks odd.

You can use a new bar with older kites. The bars designed for SLE kites have a huge throw. You don't need this for older c-kites but they will work just fine!
