To the SS Rep's

Postby WILCO » Fri Jun 20, 2003 2:48 pm

Kite: Fuel 13m 2003
Board: SS zeppelin 137 2002 + TT 180cm
Weight: 60 Kg

Windrange SS website: 12-20 knots
Real windrange: ???-??? knots

Could you tell me guy's since, I now can going with a 13mflat grunty kite in 9 knots on the 180 cmTT, so I can't imagine the 13 m fuel (almost 14 m actually) just gettin going in 12 knots. And is the top end of 20 knots really true (on the Zeppelin)?

Wilco,

There is now way a 13 will get you anywhere in 9 knots, maybe maybe a 20 will get you going.
You sure you're not thinking of M/S cause that would be 19 mph or 17 knots, and you can have some fun on a 13.

No, it's possible, I surf (unhooked) with my 9.2 Rebel Pro on a 168*47 I plan in 9kn when everybody else is sitting on the beacj waiting for wind, allright, I dont stay upwind, but what's the most fun? Surfin and do a 'walk of shame one in a while' or sit on the beach or at the bar doing NOTHING.

With the same kite and board I'm still surfing in +30kn(survive-mode)
Not bad I think

at your weight i honestly think that they are about right.

im 72kg and the 15m fuel does me from 14k, 10k on the `13 seems fine.
