Big! :eek:


My only issue with the bigger ARC's is the fact that they traditionally don't perform well in the bottom end.

I find you will get a higher performance and ease of use from a big fixed bridal kite, or the new de-power foils.

As they are smaller kites than an equivalent ARC, they will turn and respond quicker, a huge asset in light winds.

Got a petrol powered leaf blower to pump it up? I imagine it will turn like a bus with a steering problem.

Yep, I have a small fan that I inflate my arcs with. A lot easier then holding open zippers etc.

i haven't been able to fully stretch out the big girl yet, but here are a few pics. Just the spars are about 1.8m long!

      "3 men, 9 kites and 330 kg food and equipment…that was needed for a 27 day crossing over the Greenland ice cap: powered by only wind. Adventurers Eric Leegwater (NL), Bjorn Wils (DK) and Carl Alvey (NO) used snowkites to cover a 2620 km distance in complete absence of any civilization. An absolute absurd trip"
