Great light wind kite!
The best thing about thing about being a small kiter is that you can fly smaller kites -- most days. But on the very light wind days, you want a kite like the Cabrinha Contra. I flew the 13m in very light winds, and it felt like I was flying a much smaller kite. Great power for a light wind kite. This little (big) beauty will keep you off the beach on very light wind days, and you'll have fun while you're doing it. It's a little slow turning -- it's a 13m kite after all! -- but I'm willing to overlook that because it was so much better than I was expecting a 13m kite to be. I'm not sure I would use it for foiling, but luckily it comes in big enough sizes for a lightwind TT session.
