First Real Day Out

16 September 2011 - 06:55 AM

Hi. Today was my first real day out with my EXP, meaning there was consistent wind. It was really fun but I think it might have been too windy. When the gusts picked up the kite would pull really hard and I had a hard time finessing and hoovering it. Trying to get a feel flying inverted the wings would flip over and I would lose temporary control, it also made crazy spins at times. Is this due to high winds? Not tooting my own horn, but I think I did better than I thought I would. No where near good, but just able to keep it in the air and turn and stuff like that. It did feel as if it was lacking control. Thinking if I was better, I still felt the inability to pull off the manuevers I see on the YouTube videos. Any input? Also if I were to upgrade (I can see this becoming a REALLY expensive hobbie/addiciton) to the B 1.5 which would better suit me with fluctuating wind conditions from 5-20 with gusts, STD, Mid Vent, Full Vent? Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Rev B 1.5 or B 2

Hi All. New to board. I was wondering what's an all around better kite the B 1.5 or B 2? Was curious which one to get to upgrade from an EXP.
