Speed 5 Inside

Postby obi volant » Wed Jun 15, 2016 3:07 pm

I made a little video during the Week at my Homespot in France. First navigation has been done with the Speed 5 12 on Saturday, then I made a testflight with the Brand new S5 15.
I am totally convinced by both kite.

Nicely done. I like the slow motion on the jumps. What kind of wind speed did you have that day?

Thanks for the compliment.
I just do my videos for fun... so it's cool to read that some people like it.
Regarding the wind, i think it was somewhere between 16 and 23 knts on saturday with the s5 12, and 12-13 knts with the the s5 15 on sunday.
Both kite are marvelous...really! I could spend hours explaining all tiny and big différences with s3 and s4 kites.
What's cool with 'piriac sur mer' is that i am always alone on the spot. People prefer to ride on large sandy beach like st brevin or la baule which are very close.
My parents has a house on the beach so my mother can look after my two kids during my ride.
Another cool thing is the tide which create some kind of big lagoon behind reefs with large flat areas.
It's also à cute typical britanny village, so the view is quite Nice when you ride.

I have flown the S5 12m on 24m lines during a test on one of my very rare TT sessions.
The first time ever to experience wave board compatible upwind reaches. That said, I have never flown a racekite yet on the water!

I love it on my hydrofoil in 6-12kn.
The stability is really good, as is the power it can generate in very low winds.

Definitely a kite I have put on my wish list! :thumb:
