Comments:
I tried the kite at sea with onshore conditions and a strong current. Still i could go upwind pretty easy and was riding a 11m while smaller kiters used 14m! The fun really started when i boosted a Jump! it is like you will never return to earth again. Amazing nice long glide phase. I couldn't do much other tricks as i would wash up to the beach pretty quickly. But i am looking forward to give it another go when i get the chance
