It was a choice between either a board or a bigger kite, I decided on bigger kite!
Yesterday I looked out at the trees blowing about quite badly as the kite arrived and thought it would just be suicide to take a 9m out in that wind with a total kite experience of 5 flights with a 2.5m Rage. Today the wind was forecast low in the early morning, picking up midday with 35mph gusts so I thought I would get out early before it gets too bad and get half an hour or so trial at least.
I got to the field and unpacked everything, the first look of the size of the thing scared me to death! I got everything connected, as I say I am a complete novice and this is the first time I have seen a control bar or depower kite but the instructions were clear and to the point making it a painless affair. Put the harness on, connect up safety leash, hook onto the harness spreader bar, release brake and gave it a tug.
I was under the impression that a 9m kite would fly in the breeze from a butterfly's wings but it would seem that really it needs just as much as the 2.5m to get started. With a bit more puff in the sails it turned MUCH better, I could turn on low power now and power turning was near on a penny. I was now scudding across the field as well, not a few feet, about 30 feet at a time, talk about a buzz!
At first it was a bit scary but very quickly I realised it was actually very easy to keep balance and slide around like an ice skater. The wind continued to increase, and started to get quite gusty, then it happened, rather than scudding across the field I found myself with no connection to the ground at all, but then I was back on the ground and my heart regained a beat. Another gust and it happened again, this time I was ready for it, and again, then I found myself deliberately powering up to try an make it happen! Just one week after the first ever flight of a 'proper' kite I was leaping probably 5 to 10 feet dangling off a monster kite, entertainment just does not get better than this!
I do not know anything much about kites, I can't really even say if it is a good kite or not as I have almost nothing to compare it to, what I can say is at 7am I was frightened to death of the thing and now at 11:50am I absolutely love it. With a good breeze it turns in less than its own width, the control bar is pretty good as far as I can tell and it picks me up off the ground!
I have to admit the unbelievably low price was what attracted me to the kite in the first instance but all the reviews I could find seemed to describe something which was better than the price seemed to indicate so I bought it and I am absolutely over the moon with it, it pulls like a tractor and is lovely and stable in the air, clearly it is a great kite for someone just entering the sport and I suspect in the hands of an expert it will perform magic I have yet to witness.
