Yup... you can see a load of texture just downwind of the breakwater... even just a few feet..

Can't find anything wrong here.
Ozone shows us that the kite has also an amazing high end.

Great combo for Andy - Ozone and Xenon.

Depends want to be comfortable on a 14 or have power to spare on the 17m. Christ I can ride in 11 knots on an 11m edge and skim but can get a bit tedious. Nice to be ripping in lower winds, which I call 12 to 15 knots. Below this its race board territory anyhow. An efficient board is needed.

Kite is very responsive to inputs, fun to ride, lighter bar pressure compared to other large kites I've ridden, big wind range and expands the number of days I get on the water. I weigh 210 lbs

We had an upwind competition the other day between the Zephyr and the Fatlady. Very similar low end, we couldn't make the winner.
We used the same boards and the riders weigh in the same as well. we also switched kites back and forth.

I thought that if Andy is on Ozone's team and is as well on xenon's team then in case the wind is low we will see him on a big Rayo but i guess that from 11 knots with the zephyr he can pull of tricks on a smaller TT.
