I looked at the #'s for a few brands of Para-Gliders that are single surfaced.
They Still get an OK glide, but there minimum-sink is at a WAY lower speed !!!! :thumb:

Lots of people use the single surfaced PG to climb mountains cause
there so light to back-pack with ; which is Just what the Dr ordered for a
light wind water-kite !!

That's exactly I had in mind or with the Ozone XXLite, thank for contribution :thumb:

Which is a light wind water-kite, obviously not for Wimps :nono:
Because in 2 years I dropped my 21m only twice to the Soup so water relaunch is not an issue :lol:
Obviously I drop my other kites all the time in fact intentionally to practice reverse & normal relaunch.

Wave your flag, Supa. March on Capital Hill. You're like the westboro baptist church (intentionally uncapitalized). The only attention you deserve and get is negative attention, because only things that come from your pie hole are hate and negativity.

Can one of you EPIC supporter answer just that please !!!!![quote]

This coming from the guy who wants to punch Supa in the neck over and over again? Talk about passive aggressive...

Very cool.... you never know and it's fun to try... Keep it up.... Yeah we need all this energy put into making the sport really more fun and accessible.
Make some video!

I've kited very very low.... I think I'll put a wind meter on my kite with the camera pointing at it before I try to guess to much on the small number... time to ave the meter up there since guys a telling me I'm riding in B. There's a wind speed we're riding in after all the Inflatables fall just have to figure out what it is now...

(Hey I like all Kite and Inflatables too.... Just sold a Blue and Green Zephyr to a couple of new kiters 200+lbs) It's all fun... but my focus on summer is really lightwinds to get more power and hours in... some Customer that have 17m Zephyrs have 21m's too when needed) Mix and Match...! for more fun! All kites to pull us around....

I could go out on a super sized raceboard like the one shown that Mikes Lab made, they don't use it for racing since it's out of the box rule size... but I think I'll stick to the Twin tip with big fin(s) since I also still want to keep doing tricks and lots of jumping...

In the end though just getting ready for a fun summer, we've already been using our 21m in drysuit weather...

Thanks for mention.... not sure about relaunch but looks like this would be the lightest "Kite/Paraglider"

Dude...your lack of reading comprehension is really showing here. My posts have nothing to do with supporting EPIC or contravening differing views or opinions. My posts have to do with keyboard beating up on Chumpy and Supa Old Ass Dinosaur dick head because I don't like they way either of them turn a forum into their own personal defamation tool. Supa dick head is actually calling me to come to his weak ass kite spot. HA HA! Too funny. Supa dick head thinks kiting on a 1900 meter kite is some kind of accomplishment. What a joke. 19M is a MONSTER! MONSTER! He only weighs about a 165 so like I also said in another post he must be one inefficient kiter if he actually needs a 19M kite to kite light winds at his weight. That's weak ass no-skills IMO. Light wind kiting sucks IMO. Just not for me. If it's what you like then fine but don't come on here acting like it's rocket science cause' it ain't.

Are you a forum moderator wannabe mister kite minimums? Funny how whenever someone's opinions differs from someone else's one person always seems to try and censor those opinions. Especially when one is at the loosing end of the debate.
Please continue to post. It exposes your desperation to cover up your weak position of supporting b.s. claims.[/quote]
