Jess get the regular 19 unless you want to fart around in really light winds. 12 knots the kite is well powered and quite "fun" though's there's plenty-o-folk who gauge that differently. Jumps to ~ 5-6 meters are possible for me @ 92kg in twelve knots. I've been out in 18 knots with this kite and wasn't tempted to depower at all; the kite just moves further ahead into the window. Drop this kite, like any other big kite, in big surf and well, kinda probably not a gung-ho idea. No problem back stalling to relaunch off the leading edge for me.TurcoLoco wrote:Weighting 230 pounds and looking for a low wind kite the Flysurfer Speed 2 Silver Arrow is an option.
Chemosavi and FredBGG say they are ok.
Is the fabric of the light version too frail?
Should one buy the regular S2-19 or the Silver Arrow?
Are they fun at 12 knots?
I had a X-4 18 that pulled like a truck and had little depower, no fun.
In my country getting one is marryage for life.
Can the kite be ridden in big surf in 8 to 12 knots conditions?
Is the 15 a better kite between 8 to 12 knots?
A lot of questions for a lot of money in these kites.
