Reduce drag with tubercules?

According to this article putting tubercules on the leading edge of a wing reduced drag 32% (http://www.wired.com/2015/11/whales-wind-turbines/). Could the same principle be applied to kites? One benefit of reducing drag would allow us to ride in less wind and reduce back-stall.

Re: The Legacy is Amazing.

Yeah probably a little slow which is f***ing amazing for airstyle and wakestyle. I for one don't like kites that are too twitchy or fast. You can certainly loop the 10m Legacy, but make sure that your jump is 8-10m or higher before you do :D

Re: The Legacy is Amazing.

I need to get a Go Pro and mouth mount but yes I will. So with looping new kites I always use the same process. First I send it big and do a late loop on the way down, I then proceeded to pull the loop earlier and earlier. Additionally when performing the weight loops I figure out where the bar need...

Re: The Legacy is Amazing.

Just purchased the 14m. Can't wait to ride it and will post a review with focus on low end and turn speed.

Bump: "How does the wind range of the 12 compare to the 14?"

Thanks for the info Marc at 75kg I figure 11knots should be good for me. I will be likely picking up a 14m Legacy as well.

Re: The Legacy is Amazing.

Note this kite likes to be ridden powered. Most people the last couple of days were on 8's while I was on the 10m on the depower setting and last knot connection on the TE. Huli88 can attest the kite goes big and unhooks well in powered conditions. 8+ hours of riding it so far and I love it.

The Legacy is Amazing.

I finally got a chance to ride my new 10 meter Legacy today, and it is simply an amazing kite. Winds were in the low 20's with gusts up to about 35 and the kite handled the gusts beautifully. Coming from a major five-letter brand I had my reservations, but the Legacy is simply a world-class, top tie...
