Don't beat ya self up man about the buggy speed. Your .8mpg off being the fastest on the planet and certainly the fastest guy standing up.Hardwater Kiter wrote:D'oh! Sorry that was a typo. Now I feel like a jackass.
83.4 is my unofficial. The dang buggy guys still have me beat. Although when we go out we go out unsupported and we ride all day if need be. A little different than how the buggy guys operate or how the top buggy speed was attained.
Kite: Peter Lynn Phantom 2 Prototype
Location: Sebago Lake Maine. USA (see images)
Winds: 30kts gusting to about 45kts+
Surface: Firm corn snow.
It was a long day. Kept playing in the rotors coming off the island to the north. Was relying on the gusts to get the speeds.
Sorry for the corfusion on the speed.
Depends on the hardness of the ice, the level of debris, location (close to shore vs. away) and how long you want the edge to last (speed session vs. all day touring) and what ski (DH/Speed vs. Big Mountain)gurke wrote:What edge angle do you ski at pure ice?
97? Should it be 87 or 93 if 3 degrees from 90?Hardwater Kiter wrote:3d = 3 degree or 97 degree depending how you look at it.
