mine is the 06 version i think in blue 17mtr,the kite is immaculate but had it really cheap due to owner emigrating.im only on land at mo as have not had time to take on kitesurfing but it seems a shame to let this beauty go to waste so i thought id get some use out of it as well as using it for kitesurf training later.its so big id deffo use it on very low wind days when my other kites would be grounded.great vid too :D

Hi, I sometimes fly the fuels on land and at the beach for old times sake. I avoid pumping them to full pressure if flying in unreliable winds inland though as hard impacts can cause a rip from nose to tail or punctures. The 17m pulls like a horse or a train, I can't remember which.

Yeah you can use it on land. 17m of oldschool C kite is quite heavy so it may not have quite the low wind performance you expect.
