i've seen many times how smaller kites getting upwind better than bigger "high performance" kites in lite winds. you'll be surprised!
Y'know, I would be
It's MHO that there may be merit in smaller faster kites for smaller lighter riders, but when you're heavy there's no replacement for displacement - catching all the wind you can with a big kite and long lines
Either that or the smaller, lighter riders here with their "high performance" kites just aren't that good kiters ...
oh, forgive me master Kamikuza, i forgot to mention that i usually wright about my own experiences not some lite weight kid's one. and do try to find time to learn about why they make plane's wing profile curved, not flat?
No problems, thanks for pointing that out
I figured that was the case, so I thought I'd share my own experiences and observations too ... they just don't happen to agree with yours
I bet you're a far better rider than the other guys here though, and would have no problem with the smaller kites.
