Thanks for the comments so far.....
Dirk I hear you. I wouldn't head out for a kite when the forecast is light.
It's more of a luxury to have in the back of the car when you get to the beach and the forecast was 15-20kts and you get 12-15kts and you have driven a while so may as well get wet.
I am also 6ft 95kg so not a blessed kiter by any means.
I don't like going out under powered anytime. To me there is a difference about going out kiting and kiting powered up.
Spent a fair bit of time on the TS 1 17m yesterday and it felt similar to the zephyr performance wise.
Has anyone tried both the new 17 edge and dyno back to back - Toby? or can't you say
