Has anyone tried the 13m in light winds yet?

Just curious how it compares to some of the other light wind LEIs like the 17m TD3 or 16 Crossbow IDS.

I have the 11, not the 13. The other day we got to the beach and the winds were light. About 10 kiters were out mostly on 12's, 13's and 14's. I (190 lbs) was on the OV 11 and a small 130 board and was staying upwind, jumping and going fast while they were all going downwind or barely staying even. Many of them came in down the beach and had to walk back up.

If the 13 is like the 11 but even more powerful it will have a great low end.

i have the 11 and just 1 session with it. BAr pressure is ok but I also come from old school C kites. the 11 turns slow considering that it is 11 and comes with a large bar. Pull is ok though ;-)

Try OV11m2 on lines 23m - it becomes much faster.

I have three months ride 11m2 9m2 and 7m2. Kites are stable and fast and very informative.
