The way we know and love the Reo – a balanced feeling with good forward speed, perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross to cross-off winds. This setting lets the kite free to sit further to the edge of the wind window when de-powered, drifting as you ride down the line.For On-shore conditions. The kite will sit a little further back in the wind window, while increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. This kite will make enjoyable even the most unpleasant straight on-shore conditions, where the bloody wind is trying to prevent you to smash that lip.If you prefer a slightly heavier feel this could be the setting for you… Otherwise you can always stay at home an play with your kittens.
