Is that (14m) what you would use in 35 knots wind condition? wouldn't you get down wind drag constantly even with the bar sheet out all the way full arms length?Toby wrote:14m wind
At 80k I could not hold a 14m rebel in 35 that’s for sure. I would pump up the 11m I would try a 12m if I had one. Toby at 35kns and 90+kg you would be at you limit and no room for gust… true?Toby wrote:Warm air gusts up to 35 is possible for me to hold...93 kgx.
Interesting story from yesterday:
a friend of mine, former pro rider in the boardoff time, took my 18 in about 15-16 knots or so...he came in 2 min later and said he cannot hold it...and he is very experienced!
But, his weight is 65 kg. I never would have assumed that he cannot edge to jump it...so, weight IS a big factor with being able to hold such big kites!
