Demoed a 13.5 core GTS kite, a 3 strut low aspect kite. Definitely my style kite, very similar to my 13Z with the exception of feeling smoother when cranking the turns.
(Because of pulley on the bridles?)
It has a good feel for wave carving and flat water carving. Also looks like 20 meter lines were on it. Will have to try 20m lines on my 13Z. (Maybe my next kite).
After demoing the GTS I rigged the 13Z with TT and direction board for another hour of riding.
Weather was sunny mid-70s and 12-25 mph NW winds. Fun day 😎
Sanibel sensor Jan 5, 2019
Gear: Demoed a Core GTS 3 strut kite and then back on my 13M Z Kite and TT/Mako
Mid 80s. sunny, south breezes to 25 mph.
The most dangerous launch I ever did. Launching 40 feet upwind from the busy Sanibel causeway.(Sanibel Plaza) with cars and trucks wizzing by at 45-55 mph.
Overall a marginal 13m day. Nice venue with shallow water everywhere and directly onshore breeze. The warm water felt good for a change.
Nice crowd of 12-15 kiters and 3-4 WS with 12-19m kites being used.
Finally about 2:30 the wind lightened up to 17-19m level.
