1. Optimize performance for size w/o worrying about wind range as much. I carry a 4 kite quiver (17m, 12m, 10m, 7m).

2. Make kite as large as it needs to be for really light wind (<10mph), can relaunch, and stay in the air duing lulls (like current cloud).

In Germany there is a growing group of kiters who bought and tried the Cloud. Some are into it and love it (like me), some start to sell them because it does not fit their style. Which is something Greg always points out, that the Cloud won´t suit everybody. So you start to find some Clouds with little usage on the second hand market.


Could you please send me the link to this second hand market?
I d like to buy a used 17m cloud...

Well just see if that was a fluke or what....


Okay so apparently Toby has a filter which turns the kitesc00p.com (replace the zeros with o's) to kindergarten...blah blah... Which I think is illegal...it is fine to not allow the post but to change the post is slander... That would be like changing a URL I post which is directed at a kitesite to a childporn site.... Toby... You cannot do this... You are creating more trouble then it is worth

Anyhow here is the correct link using tiny URL...as you know Toby for every filter and rule you apply there is a work around...

Thanks Laughingman, That had me puzzled as to why it swapped.

I'm looking forward to hearing what the new bridle choices do and what Greg has come up with for a control system.
