last 2 seasons I have had 12/9/6 and a 17 (which hardly gets used).Peter_Frank wrote:I dont know about the big ones, but my personal experiences (78kg) are:
But going from 7 to 11 or from 6 to 9 does definitely NOT work at all IMO
Which are about the same steps you have now, percentagewise that is...
Even the 5-7 is a bit big sometimes, so some got 5-6-7 to cover better (we ride often with these sizes in waves).
So would aim for something around 33% change in size.
Regarding the big ones, things change dramatically.
I prefer a small change in size around the "good" max sizes, which for me is around 11-12m2.
Above that (with my weight), it does not matter if a small or a huge step, as they are so slow and not the same "art" of kitesurfing no more - so much more an individual preference, and a huge step in size makes more sense here, in these low windspeeds.
Just my experience
I agree with this, 7/9/12 or 7/9/13 works perfect for me at 140 lbsTheJoe wrote:I ride 7/9/13 Fuels. This works well for me. When the 13 gets overpowering I can ride the 9. The 7 is there for when I want to do freestyle when the wind is in the mid to high 20's after that it's just boosting.
I do find 2m gap to be too much overlap. This is just my thoughts and fits for my riding style. I really only got the 7 for kiteloops but as age catches up to me I think I might go back to hybrids for some more forgiving loops.
