Re: Aussie import tax

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE FROM SWITCH IN THE FUTURE

It might have been discussed before: A lightwind surf-dedicated kite around 12sqm. Maybe strutless? What I'm after: excellent upwind ability, excellent drift, fast turning, in very light wind. This is exactly what I have been looking for - I've just picked up a 12m Cloud, hope it's the answer. Most...

Re: Element 4

Hi there, I'm looking for a light wind surf kite - 73kg & ride a sweet potatoe, is the 15m going to drift in light wind (say 12 knots) or is it just made for heavier riders in normal wind conditions ?
