Hi Guys,

The Crossbow 3 12m, is the best lightwindkite i have riden so far.
Used it in El Gouna by avg 7 kts. with a door. I am 72 kilos.
While other riders were loosing hight with their new Bandit 13m, 14m Vegas- and 16m Airrushkites, I was gaining hight with no problems at all. The Airrushkiter even used exact the same Board as I and was of identical weight, but was kompletly chanceless!
It was realy a lot of fun to follow the Airrush guy downwind and then to ride back up, while he had to walk. :lol:

I can imagen that even 5 kts would make it possible for me to hold hight.

2006 Airush Reactor 21m, the reactor is supposed to be one of the fastest turning kites on the market (good for low winds), the testers said they were able to do kite loop tricks in 8 knots.


I'd like to see somebody loop a 21m :jump:

a buddy of mine was just testing out the new eze 13m from freakdog, (EH's american retailer) and he was going in 5kts on a skim board, albeit slowly, but still riding. where will technology take us next? watch the video on freakdogkites.com

I don't believe it, maybe 7 knots on a big board and light rider.

Do you have a video to prove it :?:

DrLW


Its true. 5 knots, 140cm board, EZE 13, no current & went upwind at times. Did it, got the t-shirt! Literally.

There seems to be doubt about "What Kite can Fly in Lite Wind", Etc...I also see that there are kite and board combo's going on here..All that I can offer is Video, that some people are asking for...The video is real, and you can believe it or not, that is Your call....www.kitetricity.com.....Be sure to look at the info on the Wind meter, and read the credits at the end of the video, about the riders weights....

The bigger video on your site shows a lot of whitecaps both near and far from shore so you may want to resize it to thumbnail size like the two smaller videos so nobody will question the integrity of your windmeter.

Below is what I would consider strong evidence for a lightwind kitesurfing. I cut the kite out so no pimping. Just skepticism regarding light wind claims.
