I am 105kg and have 2012 Parks 12m+9m. Obviously it is very dependent on wind/board/style, but if I had my druthers I would go 14m+10m.


Might be silly question but what are"druthers"?
Thanks

Courisity got the better of me so I Googled it :-? And am as confused as ever :?: but get the gist of it :lol:
Quote:

Meaning
If I had my preference.

Origin
This is an American phrase and not used widely elsewhere. People elsewhere in the world might want to know what druthers are, as the phrase conveys otherwise. Druthers is a shortening of 'would rathers'. The phrase originated in the late 19th century and is first cited in the January 1870 edition of Overland monthly and Out West magazine, in a story called Centrepole Bill, by George F. Emery:

"If I was a youngster, I 'drather set up in any perfession but a circus-driver, but a man can't always have his 'drathers."

Druthers, as opposed to its earlier variant drathers, is traced back to 1876 in Dialect Notes:

"Bein's I caint have my druthers an' set still, I cal'late I'd better pearten up an' go 'long."

Hi. I owned Park's since they were put on the market. Usually my quiver is 9 and 12. My high wind kite is the Naish Bolt 6. This year the Park has changed quite a lot. As I said in other threads the flight window is wider and the grunt way better. But overall the kite represents a definitive upgrade respect the Park 2012. 9 and 12 are ideal sizes for a medium weight kiter like me (74 Kilos). Both can perform very well in waves and freestyle.

Bar pressure?? Depending on the settings light to moderate.
Low end performance?? Excellent.
Turning speed? Very good for this size.
Wind Range?? Huge. With two boards I can cover a wide wind range. 10 to 24 Knots....the "sweet spot" is from 12 to 20.

Overall one of the best kite I've had in 12 years kiteboarding.

I hope this helps.
(I'm not affiliated with Naish whatsoever)
Best regards
Carlo
