a variable wind weekend - a flight test with the new Peter
Lynn Guerilla II showed us how versatile this kite was with
us managing to use it for kitesurfing, buggying and kitelandboarding!
Lynn Guerilla II - 15m >
This kite is really good in the gusty conditions we had
today, but despite this turns very quick for its size and
compared to other depowerable foil kites on the day turns
quicker but doesn't accelerate quite as quick with no luffing.
Improvements on it's predecessor also includes personalised
bar pressure that can be obtained by using the two different
attachment points on the wingtips. We tried both but found
that in the lighter wind conditions - the lightest setting
gives it its greatest turning speed and the kite comes into
turbo power when the apparent wind kicks in.
Both on the water and on the land - the Guerilla II proves
it's a real jumping kite with not only almost straight vertical
lift but also hangtime with very little carry downwind.
To compare to other similar kites it almost
auto zeniths and turns as quick as any other water relaunchables
I have flown. We both had to adjust our redirecting times
making them later than normal to prevent the kite from looping.

Foolproof inflate/deflate zippers on the trailing edge enabling
for quick setup and pack-down.
3-part wingtip spars also allow for a smaller
kitebag rucksack allowing for easy transportation which
was a big improvement.
The wingtips spars can be left assembled in the kite as
the new bag expands to accommodate it.
This is a confidence inspiring kite for anyone who wants
to do all kite related sports. Its versatile for wave-riding
due to its great turning speed and excellent for jumps,
great for hangtime and groundwork on the landboard and an
all-rounder in the buggy!
