...for hydrofoil and 62 kg in any case below 10 knts!

Don't want to discuss if it's 9,8 or maybe 7, but have riden a pre-series many times in those conditions with a high-aspect Levitaz-Hydrofoil.

The anemometer stands pretty free in winter and the other guy, also on a hydrofoil with a 12 m² ended his session at 15:55 before i did, as the wind was dropping and to light for him to get going on the foil :naughty:

And the great thing is that the 6 m² is even big fun in around 10 knts, also for freestyle as jumping, allready managed to do some foil-offs at around 12-15 knts as it has neary as much airtime as the big ones. With my old Psycho4 in 6 m² I had always some difficulties to do board-offs also in good conditions with a twintip. But one reason is also that I didn't use 21 m lines anymore, but on all kites the new thiner lines with 27 m.

6 m² will be my low to medium wind kite, as it was my 12 m² Psycho4, before I started with hydrofoil
5 m² Boost2 already pumped up once :) will be for high wind
and the 9 m² Sonic is for super light wind :D
... and my old Chrono 15 ? ... don't know yet, maybe tandem-hydrofoil in light wind :lol:
