... o casi nada ...
este es un post bienintencionado y para nada quiero levantar polemica de que si si o que si no, de que me gusta o de que eso no vale, sólo voy a exponer una opinión, si a alguien le parece que le puede interesar, postea aqui, o me manda un privado y le cuento mas, que conste que lo hago por compartir y por ayudar, y ... que mi nombre de usuario no le lleve a engaño, ultimamente no ando por grancanaria, osea que lo de usar ese tamaño de cometa, casi injustificable, "ahora" si que esta mas justificado, mas que nada porque hay dias en que casi no hay viento, y ahí es donde mi natural estado de rebeldia innata busca como manifestarse y romper con esa injusticia, la de que no haya viento suficiente.
Pues eso, ahí van unas fotos de la maquina de "casi no hay viento".
A favor ... que entre 4 y 6 nudos, con el tablón, ya iba, a partir de 6 y mejor aun, entre 8 y 10, ya vienen los saltos, saltos orilleros de esos que cuando has caido de pie, te das la vuelta y miras al viento y ... casi no hay nada, pero ... has saltado ... (peso 73 kgs)
En contra ... que vale una pasta
En fin, lo que decía antes, el que quiera saber mas, que pregunte, que es bienvenido.
Saludos

The intention of this post is not to argue neither to create confrontation (let's see if that is possible), I don't want neither to push this brand in order to "make friends or enemies", the reason of this post is to share my impression about this kite and its size, is a 21 mts.
There were 4 to 6 kts, sometimes, at the end of the session 8 or 10 kts at most; with my 73 kgs of weight, before to buy it, I was a bit afraid because I imagined it very powerful and maybe too agressive dragging given my weight, not true, it is very stable, the power comes gently and I felt very safe at all time, I just wonder why I didn't took this step earlier and I didn't buy one 2 years ago when it first hit the market.
When I tested it I used my three boards, 164x48, a surf board 165 cms and a 132x44 crazy fly.

Only One guy at Mohave that i know of has one of these ; it blows too hard
most of the time for a big kite like that. When it's light though, he's the only guy riding.

I'd like to own one of these for my San Diego runs, but there kinda expensive and
i only go down there once a year so it's not really a justifiable expense for me.

Nice kite though !!!

You have a GOOD place to kite-board !!
