Hi !!

Every one says the access has no lift.
I would like to know how high you can jump with a 10m access in 10-12 knots of wind.
For comparison, I also would like to know how high you can jump with a Frenzy 9m in the same conditions.

I think the access might be a nice kite to buy if the frenzy could lift me plenty feet high in not too strong winds...

Thanks !

Depends on if the wind is from the north or south or east or west. And also what size shoe you wear.

When the wind is south I do not wear the same shoe size... It makes it hard to figure out...

um.... sweet F@#k all in those winds on the flat for both kites. On a steep slope with an updraft it would be different.

in 10-12 knots i'm on my 15m manta on the flat.

Sure you can jump with the Access... maybe not as high as a Frenzy but close.

I have customers on the 9m Frenzy but i do 7m-11m.
Been higher though...
On the 7m Here:
