I'm getting more sessions than ever before and have been boosting and unhooking in what used to be lower end conditions for my strutted 14m kites.They have been especially awesome up here in Puget Sound where our summer winds are thermals and tend to be high off the water. Although some folks have been talking trash (especially in OZ) about strutless designs I think they are here to stay. I'm excited to see what the future will hold here.
If you've been enjoying your Strutless kite no matter the brand, post up!
I dont understand what you write ?
You compare to your 14m2 strutted kite and say it is "lower end" compared - by this, do you mean the 13 strutless has more lowend than your typical 14's ?
Or are you talking about the 17m2 (which should have more low end no matter what I assume).
And about thermals - what is this in your spot ? High off the water ?
Does this mean more wind on land than on the water ? Or more wind up higher above the water ?
And where is the connection from thermal wind to struts or strutless ?
Sorry, you lost me there mate
