As from 16-17 knots I can go on a 7m delta and I will go faster and turn shorter with my 5'9"
groundswell yes.. and the undertow/currents can be massive (-5kn?), causing a kite size that is otherwise used in flat still water, to simply not be enough to compensate... undertow and ocean swell can mess up conditions a bit..
My question is really in relation to a 2013 9m Drifter.
I like the IDS system for packing down in shallow water in a way that I can reverse the pack down and drift launch it. It works well with the Crossbow and the Switchblade in that if I pull down the centreline, the kite will land at the side of the window and flip over into the parked position. Like this:
Does the Drifter do the same thing? Also does it tend to Yo-Yo up and down if in the U position downwind on the IDS in very strong wind?
I know a few of the Cabs (like the Nomad) behave differently on the IDS.
