Winter winds

Out of interest and as we will be coming into winter soon

What sizes are the kites most of you are usually using during winter winds?. Or what are the general wind ranges over the winter ? As I could do with getting another kite so I can still get out in winter winds.

Depends... I can still use the whole range but obviously there can be more higher wind days.
I use 7m and 9m a lot and also the 5m loads with surfboard.

Generally a 9m would go well with the 12m but will still be too much for many sessions.

Ignore Alun he's always on a 5m always has been....and the surfboard makes a huge difference obviously but also he knows how to get most out of kite ie he’s been kiting a long time and is not a “lazy kites” ;)

What marcs saying is I’m not normal ;) . For most people a 7 is the goto over the winter. Marc has a great selection there to try so you should find something that suits

I'd definitely take a look at the deals we have been doing all summer on the PLKB Swell V4

e.g.

7m Swell V4 Kite only £949
with Bar & lines £1384
Package price = £1195

Then just sell the board and get back approx £300 +

Loads have advantage of this already this season, it's a real bargain!
It's also available on the HOOK too

I concur, Alun is not normal. He lives on his 5m. It makes no difference what time of year it is
