I've type this before.... Its a package you need to take a big kite into higher wind. I'm 80k and can hold my 19m into +20kns. Last week I had the 11m in over 30kns... Man crazy great jumps.Westozzy wrote:Heinz, try getting on a small TT (less than 130 and less than 39 wide), with as square (straight) edge as possible and a really squared off tips. You gotta be able to hold that load hence need as much rail in the water as possible, and square tips to really stamp pop that back foot down when you pull in the throw. I've had makos, they will not do for what you are trying on that particular kite. Well of course you can learn to make whatever work, but the design is all wrong on principle.
I'm only 73kg and have a 126 by 36 rad 4 and I can hold down the winds you are talking about, so it's technique but also board choice. Infact that's where it starts getting fun and the tricks get easier!
Keep at it man it will click soon enough!
What do you mean? Seat harness?s1buell_wl wrote:You also need a harness that will lower your center of gravity (this is really important). I'm not sure if the board or harness is more important.
Really ? No sign of anyone using a seat at the Red Bull King of the Air 2014s1buell_wl wrote:Westozzy wrote:You also need a harness that will lower your center of gravity (this is really important). I'm not sure if the board or harness is more important..
