I'm "glad" to see that I'm not alone in the boat (fools consolation )nothing2seehere wrote: ↑Thu Oct 12, 2017 12:14 pmAlmost every single time.
Too many sessions end in an exhausting swim (anything more than 25m for me counts as an exhausting swim for me). I think its just local conditions. We either seem to get enough wind to twin tip (18+knots) or 10-12 with lulls. If I regularly had 10-12 knots I'd probably buy the right tools for the job (foil kite).
In light winds it's how 'lully' it is (in our beach)edt wrote: ↑Thu Oct 12, 2017 3:20 pmit's not the wind speed, it's how gusty it is. If it goes from 20 mph down to 0 and the kite falls out of the sky and waves eat it, what can you do?
If it's blowing a solid 8 knots, between 7-9 you can keep the kite in the air all day. That said, swimming is good exercise, go for it! I know I test the limits.
No jibes yet.
Thanks for all the replys.
