Honestly thought this was going to be a "PumpMeUp" thread about how superior LEI's are and thats why PL made this kite.
Naaaa Pumpmeup only concentrate on Flysurfer… funny that don't you think??
Been riding the Swell 7m 6m and 9m mostly. Had one session on the 5m. The 5 is designed as nuking wind kite. Was in cape Town south Easter blasting and never felt uncomfortable.
The 7m and 9m really do have good useable ranges, surprising in the low end. Monkey Air, I think you gonna love the grunt on them.
Here is a link to a blog I wrote on the photoshoot that took place in South Africa recently…http://www.cannonrocks.com/blog/shooting-the-swell/
I really do suggest you try it. Peter Lynn may not have reinvented the wheel, but I think they have a pretty awesome 3 strut kite that performs really well in waves has great pop for freestyle and loops pretty sweetly too. Try it and let me know what you think.
