How can a kite have more lift than pull? Arent they one in the same at different spots in the wind window? Or when you say more pull are you refering to a kite that doesnt pull much in the actual wind speed when its parked overhead but starts to develop power when the apparent wind picks up once you get up to speed?

Lift is a function of the leading edge under movment developing power.
While pull is a function of surface area.
2 kites of equal surface area but ones span is greater will develop more power.

"2 kites of equal surface area but ones span is greater"

Higher aspect ratio?

"will develop more power."

Lifting or pulling power?

Just brought the dogs bollox of a tool called a windscooter and am completely blown away. tried mountain boards but got sick of getting spat off into the dirt all the time, I am too old, big and useless every 4 wheeler I have tried was way too unstable

Check out the website,

doesn't do the board justice but believe me, I was up and going within 3 minutes, super stable, maoueverable, fast, only two wheels and only 6.2 kgs! Only drawback is that it is directional but toeside felt so groovy I don't give a shit.

The dude that makes them is right on the case and very receptive and at 370 Euros it is the best money I have ever spent on a bigboytoy, haven't laughed so much since the hogs ate my sister.

Also received a 6.2 meter Gin Yoz with UDS and Spider bar from Paraflysurf, very tasty but no chance to set it up properly as I have had to go away for work.

Intial feelings about the kite are really positive but personal tuning needs a bit of time and once I have got a handle on that it will be the perfect weapon for this board.

Can't say anymore, too stoked and pissed off that I can't ride and fly for the next month.

Flysurfer Warrior 9.3, 12.5 16.5 all with UDS (Awaiting delivery from paraflysurf next month I hope)
6.2 Gin Yoz
Winscooter (Aluminium)
