Cabrinha Vector 2012 7m

Postby robisibo » Sun Jun 15, 2014 7:16 am

Hi everyone,

I'm going to Essaouira in Sept, and just bought a Vector from 2012,
since I heard the winds are pretty strong there.

I looked at the wind ranges suggested by Cabirinha and it recommends
the Vector 7m until 26 Knots.

My Intention was to use it until 35 knots of course, lines are standart 23m.

Does anyone know why Cabirinha would suggest such low wind range for a 7m Vector?

I weight 70kg and have been kiting 5 years, decent Level.

Ciao!

I have 2012 7m vector. Nice simple kite, stable , depowers well . I weight 185 and have rode it over 30mph average and gusting to 40mph and felt comfortable on it. Sounds like their numbers are a little on the low side but not far off..
