Flexi Buggy
MBS Comp26 board
Blade 2 4m

Looking for a second smaller kite for my chick so she can use buggy & board. Looking for something in the 2.5-3m range that doesn't lift like the Blade. I could also use it when the wind picks up - Any advice???

2.6m C Quad, 3.2m C Quad or 2.2m C Quad....

I've found the C Quad not to have the lift of the blade but still the pull...

C Quad Also has far more depower to it....

Peter Lynn Competition Buggy

Elliot Echo Classic 1.7
Peter Lynn Waterfoil 2.4
Libra Bora2 2.4
Elliot Echo Alpha 3.5
Libra Bora2 4.5

Had a Flexifoil Blade 4.9 but sold it to much lift to be a serious buggy kite, dont get me wrong its a great kite but its not for me.Probably getting libra Bora2 6+

I've had Quads & they are good, but just too technical for my chic to fly at the mo.

I don't understand this "too much lift to be a good buggy kite" business. Surely if a kite lifts lots, when you put it at the edge of the window it will pull like a bastard! My 4m Blade does anyway.

I was thinking more 3m Viper as smaller kite. I've never seen the Firebees or Boras - how would they compare to the Viper?

The viper is a copy of the old Predator1 (its an old design). If your after a reasonably priced buggy kite take a look at the Elliot Echo Classic 2.8 they are great kite for the price, easy to fly and plenty of power. As for the Libra Bora if your ever on a beach with me you will recognise me, I will be the guy in front of you making you look like you are in reverse. They have won major championships this year.

Less lift more forward thrust!!!!!!

From my experience with doing both buggying and kitesurfing I've found that you need a different style of kite for each sport...

I would never use a kite on a buggy that doesn't have good "top end" however with kitesurfing "bottom end" comes in handy.
