Kite Sailing?

Post by MoeJoe »

Anyone tried to use a kite for kayak sailing? One of those steerable ones that are also used for wake boards etc. But smaller I guess.. Possible to go upwind with them? Suitable size?

MoeJoe, have a look at this thread on the British forum:
http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/foru ... =4&t=51079

Although the topic starts out about "false alarms" to the coastguard (from people who assume that a kayaker a mile offshore must be in trouble) it goes on to discuss kayak kite sailing.
