I'm just loving the new kite, the wind was less than 10 and it pulls like a beast. When it picks up I'm going to be careful, I admit it pulls much harder than I expected and I expected a lot,

Thanks Big Mike for taking so much time with me and you weren't kidding about this kite, Its just as you described.

Yes the Twister 5.5
It kicked by but today, wind 15 to 25 and no harness. I had the handles ripped right out of my hands once.
I did do an 8 minute session on my snowboard without losing down wind ground to start 8) , then things got sketchy as the wind picked up. The kite has loads of lift but gets sloppy when trying to go up wind. It stalls then fills with air in the zone and HOLD ON!!! :o
I'm sure it dose better up wind in a buggy with a steady sea breeze. Its wasn't intended to be used as a snow kite, more jumping and buggy. I can't believe how strong it pulls and good it flies in almost no wind, It was very playful in the pics above when the wind was 6 to 8
I sure am getting a splendid work out :thumb:
