So i have been searching and searching for the right kite. a few months now. no rush as i have a few that i am very happy with! i have been flying a UL and standard Ocius all summer. but its to fast for me. its a great trick kite but to fast and squirely for me i didnt have time to fix over steer and under steer. so i needed a slower kite. and i needed a kite that only did what i told it to do. I finally found it this weekend. A Kymera! wasnt first on my list. i was looking at lots of kites much higher in price but i never even tried one. until this week. i flew Johns for a while and it was great!! he had other kites that i tried as well they were all great. but i needed one that fit me. Its loud and fast when you tell it to be and not when you dont. turns great, goes straight no over or under steer just does what you want and nothing you dont. thats really what i needed something that would just do what i want. Did i find the perfect kite? i dont think that exist but i did find the perfect kite for me so im happy now. i havent felt this feeling since my first flexi foil.
so my question for you is:
what kite do you love? i want all the juicy details.
Hello from Spain! After years enjoying visiting this forum I would like to present myself. I live in Spain and I fly dual and quad line kites, also the Urban ninja single line. I´m always trying to learn to improve my skills and Kitelife helps me a lot. Thank you very much for your work!!! Recently I have bought a wonderful Kymera kite from kiteparts.net. I have only fly the kite once and I like it a lot .... but I´m not sure about the tension of the sail. I would like to know if is it normal or not that the sail is so loose after the assembly. Here I show some little videos of my kite where you can see the sail after the assembly of the kite following the John Barresi tutorial. Vídeo0002.movVídeo0004.mov Thank you very very much!!!
