JN PD4 12m 2011

I have used PD4 12m available for £450

It's 6 months old, and in very good shape, and the material is still crisp.

There is a 2" canopy repair just tucked behind the LE, so well hidden.

Colour is Green LE, white/grey canopy as pictured above.

This is very nimble for a 12m light wind kite for freestyle and the largest kite I use for wave riding. It is comparable to a Vegas, Torch or other high depower C shape kites with a 5th line.

See: HERE for more info.

Parabolic outline for superb grip, and easy edge and release.

Wood core, and made in the Atomic ski factory in Austria.

3 months old in mint condition.

Liquid Force Luxury pads and straps.

The summer of wind 2011

Last year we were starting to get a little depressed by the lack of wind in the UK. We had two fairly iffy seasons. In a place where most of the trees near the beach have all grown at a 45 degree slant from being battered by the prevailing south westerly, the evidence wasn't stacking up.

A friend of mine works in renewable energy research, and has access to MET office data. He said the wind stats last year were the lowest in 150 odd years. Most of the turbines performed under capacity compared to what was forecasted.

This year has been ridiculously windy in comparison, and with decent southerly swell from the hurricanes whizzing around in the Atlantic we have had some great wave sessions and new spots have been opening up.

This sort of wind is also very good for business. We can watch our sales figures go up and down literally like the wind.

So the moral of the story is to keep the faith.

In the wise words words of King Crimson:

"I talk to the wind , The wind cannot hear"
