Can you comment on the performance of the new Xbow IDS and how it compares to the SB3? (Lets use the 10m size when comparing). Can you touch on points such as:
kite setting you prefered on IDS (ie light or lighter setting)
stability in light to strong winds
Do you find that the Xbow IDS is a tweaked out SB3 or do you find that it is totally different in feel and performance?
I think you were using the Xbow IDS in the Real Comp instead of the SB3, and was wondering what size kite you used in the really light surf? The word was you were kiting in the surf when other kiters struggled to even get going.
Jumping-way way higher, loftier
turning speed-similar, but pivots quicker
kite setting- the light
unhooking-similar but its a close call
I was using a 10m cross bow IDS during most the SSS event.
No comment about the other thing haha
check out this link for a podcast about what i was riding
hope that helped!
