Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
I think Ollie has it right...For boosting and cruising the bay, the zh is quite nice. Upwinds very well, exc. range, and skys great. The wave in very nice on the coast, and fun for carving ebb induced waves at crissy or rio. Also much nicer if you are going to unhook at all...
So last week I rode on the coast with Big Dave. It was a big wave and big wind day. I am 225 lbs and I was lit on my 10m kite.
Dave was hucking sick air on his 16m kite. It's amazing to me that he was able to hold 6m more then me: we usually have 4m between us. This is not flat water boosting: 14 foot swells and big ocean wind.
Good winds + waves, Z.
How are these kites in the smaller sizes? I've sold my small kite and am looking for a kite to go below my 12m Vegas. I'm thinking of the 8m ZH. Unfortunately I have no opportunity to try the kite.
Also considering the option of getting the 10m and picking up a cheam 7m kite for the nukin' days.
The other kite I'm considering is the 9m Strike2.
Looking for feedback.
if you like the vegas style, and want the smaller kite...try the rrd type 6...I have a 9 for sale....
