It looks like hes on a lake and my guess is it a thermic lake (he cough a small thermal that kept pulling him up). They are cool if you catch one, even better in a paragliding!

I remember catching one in Australia in my glider, it finished at 6000feet. what a crazy feeling to be attached to the bottom of a cloud you can not describe it there's just no way.

Let us know if you find a 16m and how it goes when you get it up!

Sure, a 14 will do. Also try other brands. The only problem will be the microloop which is important for your trick progression.

And set the 14 to slower turning...

Hi,

Why has nobody mentioned an Epic kite yet?
They all rave about huge jumps and the best hang time ever. :?:

I'm in the process of purchasing one (just waiting for someone from the US to come over to Cumbuco who could bring one in his/her luggage).

Cheers

I am sure Dimitri creates a big boosting and hangtime kite...it is his style!

Let us know how it flies once you tried it!

But I guess 14 is their biggest kite?

Maybe its better to start on the 14 and work you way up..... or wait another few months to see what north release in the Dyno for 2012. Im praying for a 14m
