Hi Toby,
Thanks for making the Airstyle Series - inspiring! Your mention your on an 18 most of the time doing your airstyle tricks. I know you are on a small board and flat water, curious what kind of windspeed you are kiting in when you are doing the bulk of your your filming the tricks? Thank
:wink:

Thx, happy you like it :thumb:

I do 100% of my tricks with my 18. The smaller the kite the less I will land.

I can fly it up to 25 knots in gusts. Best range between 18-22 knots.

But, it is in warm air of 30 C. Colder air has more power, so upper end is less in cold wind.

Had my first powered session on my 18m Dyno 2011 Monday.
10c and 20mph
Others on 9 & 11m
Very powered, great jumps but had to keep stopping as my Ocean Rodeo Sessions 2 harness kept coming loose and riding up. Damn it!
