We? That's funny. Time to bump up your dosage a bit and get those voices to go away.Pump me up wrote: Actually, we consider you a low-beginner rider
You can do all sorts of new and old school tricks in sub-10 knots if you have a powered enough kite and you have taken the effort to learn kiting in low wind. Dismissing low wind kiting as mowing the lawn is simplistic and ignorant. Mowing the lawn or not does not depend on the conditions, it depends on the rider. In my place we have an abundance of riders mowing the lawn in however strong the wind is while a few of us do all sorts of tricks in sub-10. Try for yourself before being so sure.Noo Noo wrote:I don't think I'd get out of bed for 9 knots. I certainly know my mate who likes his Peter Lynns wouldn't stir in the slightest in those conditions. He'd prefer to keep on snoring I reckon.Ned Divine wrote:ChickenTikka wrote: Relaunching in very light wind with foils is a piece of cake. With LEIs it's a dream.
(meaning it doesn't really happen, you only dream it could happen while swimming but it doesn't)

Sorry, yes I would ge out of bed. To go and do something else!
Lets all be clear here. kiting below 15mph (13-14kn) whether you're on a foil or a pumper is just not very good. Perhaps you can mow the lawn with your foil in 9kn but that doesn't really rock my boat to be honest. After that it's whatever rocks your boat as far a I'm concerned.
Says the man who defines a bird's wing as "rigid", same as an aircraft wing ridiculous? Not half!

Not to mention the fact that you spend 23h of every day browsing kitesurfing forums, indicating a whole suite of weird ram-loving behavioural traits, best left for analysis on another day.
All of which makes your forceful statements - as if you are some sort of expert - about various aspects of kitesurfing - even more ridiculous.
