Well, it's not *pointless*. It's just a size that's often overlooked here because the primary kite size for most people is 12m or so; they usually feel as though a 10m would give them too much overlap and would rather have a 9m or so as their next step down. As Starsky notes, there are questions of experience and style when it comes to quiver building.Metaphor_ wrote:Sucks to hear that 10m isn't used in Ontario--it's the perfect size for kiting in Squamish... so basically it's pointless to have a 10 in my Ontario quiver?
Indeed, 9m days in the summer are more hard to come by than we'd like, but that's not to say they don't happen. It was a summer session after work in 2011 where I was stuck on the beach waiting for the wind to come down a bit that prompted me to get a 9m as my second kite. If you're willing to drive a couple hours, you'll find even more rideable days with it. If you're willing to bring home a wet kite, then there will be even more. Today might be a good example of that..JaZone wrote:man, from what you guys are saying , it doesn't look too promising for when I get up there. The only kite I've got is a 9M.
