About the power issue, actually a g2-11 has a LOT of low end, its not like a g-10 where its very small, i think a g10 compares VERY well, to a 9m LEI, but dude i'm out here on my g-10 when people my same weight are out on 8.0 LEI's, all the way to who knows when, but even when i've seen fat guys put down their 6.0s and come out with windsurfing sails, and the G-10 DOES compare in turning speed, seriously. I've just had a session on my 04 8.0 tube last week, i remember the turning speed of my small kites all too well, and the g-10 is VERY similar in turning speed, maybe suffering some low end, but god what top end.
I think the bar pressure needed is more on the g2-11 to get to really whipping close to a 12.0 tube. I'll TRY to fly them back to back next time, to get a really accurate comparison, but for now the g-10/g2-11 thing is as good as it'll get.
haha i know i sound like it, but i've never done a drug in my life, exclusion of some minor alcohol, and a cigarette or two.
Oh and about the depowering thing, yes yes ofcourse i could just pull in the depower strap, but still whipping it in the waves would still make a LOT of power. I really do throw the word overpowered around quite a bit, its just because i like to ride FAST, and HARD, and if im really getting yanked HARD, i hate it, so that is subjectively overpowered for me, so in essence it is not impossible to hold it down in those wind conditions, just something i would not prefer, just slow edging, not my kind of fun. Reason i dont like to use depower is because i dont like the slack feeling in the backlines, i do fly with some slack, but a lot of slack dumbs down turning speed unless you really sheet in(very annoying for me), and besides i'll just throw up a smaller kite, if i got one, that is. I'm not even able to comment on the g2-13, so i dont even want to talk about that one.

Could you give me your impression of the low end on your 13 g2? Your weight, board size, and when you feel you can stay upwind, park, jump.
