What's your smallest kite ?

Postby peterheirman » Sat Dec 31, 2011 3:45 pm

Always astonished when people mention they have used their 16 or bigger kite.
So what's your smallest kite on TwinTip?
So what's your smallest kite on Wave Directional board?

What's your most used kite ?


TT smallest: 7m (Best Nemesis)
Wave smallest: 5m (wave board)
Most used kite: 9m (Best Nemesis)

You clearly live in a very windy place then... my smallest kite is 9m and I'm 65 kg. The wind doesn't really get above 30 knots very often here, probably 70% of the time I'm on a 12m.

I have an old 4.5 that I have never used.

However, this past few weeks, have gotten me thinking I might need a 6...my currently smallest kite is a 7 Park.

..small kites are so much fun...only a pity we barely ever get to use it.

The answer is in the Quiver thread:
viewtopic.php?p=730866#p730866
Most used kite: 9m = 70% / 7m = 30%

Happy New Year!
