your weight is not in the wind chart.billybob wrote:Quick review I bought a 7 Ovando last month to replace my 08 9 Waroo. I weighed 208lbs . I used the kite in steady 18-25kt wind in Paracuru. While it was fun to fly in the upper range, it was underpowered in the lower.
Eric had a disclaimer on the Ovando website that no Ovandos should be used in more than 30 kts, that disclaimer has since been removed.
The 25+ kt days where I live are generally gusty frontal winds. Question for the heavier reviewers, how does the Ovando react in gusty conditions? Overall, happy with the kite, but for a heavier rider7 did not replace 9, 8 may have been a better choice.
I use my 13M with factory trim right out of the bag and love it, after 5 or so sessions I needed to make some adjustments to compensate for the front line strech, there are 2 extra knots on the rear leaders that allow you to make up for the front line strech quickly.BiteMe wrote:How are you guys tuning the kite lines? What setting are you using for the lines and is it the same across all sizes? Should the rear lines be slack or tight for this kite? I flew a 13m, but couldn't really find a line setting I liked.
