I am, but that just because I haven't saved enough $$ to get one yet!

I set up my kite faster than a 4 liner....

With gusty winds like anything between 10-18 kts or 5-12 or 12-25 kts like what we have, I think riding a 2-liner would be difficult in regard dosing the power. We have allready enough problems in handling these with 4-liners...

Hawaii... different story... :smile:))

Kitebeach in Hawaii is a really gusty spot and that does not seem to faze the 2 liners i guess there just more of a harder-core click within the kiteboarding world

i tried a few things yesterday.
while riding an a 1.34 wakeboard, i didn't use the depower (well, actually, i was hooked into the chickenloop, but i didn't move the bar).
and i had no real problem with it - if you ride well powered up, you can edge hard and hold it - if there's not enough power left after some time of edging, you just go faster (less edging) and the power increases instantly - if you train to control the board-speed, two lines work ...
