Thank Brian ! I search a board for medium-high winds (15-40 knts) . I have all ready a 5'6 HF that i love !!! But in " big waves " , it s difficult to be " vertical" ...... Could i sold my HF ? The KP1 work in 15 knts ?
Sorry for my english ! I hope you understand what i mean !
The KP1 has a lot of rocker which helps it to really work well on a vertical attack. Unfortunately there's some trade off and it won't plane as well as some of our other models if your trying to use it for light wind (unless your reasonably light weight). The Quadra 5 would work well but will have a lot more float. Also keep an eye out for the Vanguard which is coming out in a kite build. It has all the right stuff in terms of planing, vertical and hold.
After a few sessions with the KP1 , i can believe it s the BEST strapless surfkite i ve used !!!! Radical , vertical , fast..... It s perfect for me !!! So i dont need my 5'6 Hellfire today because the KP1 is great for all !!!
