Hi gays!
Winter is coming :thumb:

What do you think about ARC and Guerilla for snowkiting. Are they OK. Witch sizes are you using depending on conditions. Some other suggestions? :roll:

People in my area use them (SARC) and I've read quite often that ARCs are easily used for land and snow kiting.

That is part of their purpose, multi-purpose use.

I can't wait to give my SARC a go in the winter :D

In Joensuu,Finland was 4 days 3-10 m/s winds and surface was 0-10cm wet snow.

in 3-5 m/s I used 18m2 Guerilla, 4-8 m/s 13m2 guerilla and 6-10 m/s 10m2 guerilla, I weight 85kg and use snowboard.

if there is less than 3m/s guerillas sucks, I believe that G's profiles are so "bad" that they just don't fly good enough.

Surface was not good and because I have only helmet, I used small kite. If you have good protection or (better if) there is more snow I woud say that 18m2 is good for 3-6m/s, 13m2 5-10m/s, 10m2 8-??m/s

Of course you can use 10m2 already in 3m/s, but you can't jump properly before there is that 8m/s :-)

G's are very easy to launch if there is less than 10m/s wind and if there is snow (I have no experience in stronger winds in winter), If you are on ice with no snow, I don't know how launching would work whitout any assistance.

Taking kite down is possible just pulling QR, or having someone to catch kite.
