3 days port, 1 day starboard tack PL synergy fun in surf
Bombora was going off with side off port tack, drop in and let the synergy kite just float along while you surfed, wavesailing for three days. The iniside was hairball with the 2mph to 15 mph stuff and a lot of leading edge heavy inflatos bit the rocky shoreline in the situation. Nice place for the Peter Lynn lightness of structure and stability as they just float through that stuff. The 5'10" McCoy Lazer Zap in tufflight construction, from surftech was a great board to float through the inside and then go top to bottom with while just surfing once on the waves with their relatively clean faces on the big bowl lefts. 15 of us were there on Saturday, which was the high point of this stalled storm systems port tack pleasure chest. Then came the real can of fun opening, with todays clearing winds of on shore to side on shore with lots of seven foot sets. The synergy 12 got me on the water first and proved it's confidence building power build to get you over non stop lines of overhead surf prior to picking that wave to spin on. The 12 synergy has a great top end abosorbing the huge top to bottom range of wind very well and great for PL turning, but as one who likes the fastest and stiffest turning kite out there in the on shore conditions, after an hour of synergy fun, I had to throw up the trix nine to see how it compared for the second go out of the day. Side off down the line wavesailing and crud dangerous winds and all other go synergy , on shore chase the kite as much as you can wavesailing, trix. Different styles and both kites absolutely rip. That said I had a blast wave riding the synergy which is WAY stiffer feeling than the venom. Speaking of which Gary from Ventura was ripping it up on Heidi's old 10 VII with a small, no volume underground diretional and having too much fun to even consider testing the synergy ten today. Heidi should be submitting a review on her new synergy ten as should a bunch of other team riders who already have recieved or will shortly get their synergy kites in the mail from us.
