Today the wind was pretty light in the morning, 11/15 knots on shore, so took the SURF kite 12m prototype to give it a go! I weight about 145Lbs, 150Lbs after getting wet!
I couldn t self launch it in the water as the wind was too light and the kite couldn t stay standing on the side of the window, so a buddy of mine passing by gave me a launch.
Barely enough wind to get up on the board, a custom 5´6 surfboard I think, but once on it I couldn t believe the power of this thing!

Had to pull some depower and could easily cruise along, ride upwind, make some small jumps using the little chop!
The kite is turning good for a 12m, I rarely ride kites bigger than 10m so I d have to compare with an other 12m kite.
I like the fact that as the 8m I tried earlier this week, the kite doesn t loose power after the loop and doesn t have any delay coming out of it!

I am wondering about the size of the briddles tho, I think they might be too long and couldget tangled in case of crash!
