I'm having trouble getting lift in the tropics. Air temp is 86f humidity 86% windspeed: 11mph. At home 11mph is a 'go' speed, in cooler dryer air my 20' parafoil will lift 500g happily. Here on Barbados it's touch and go, the kite feels 'soft' and even thermal lift is weak.
I had the option of packing an ff30 but thought the forecast wind-speeds were more suited to the smaller kite, but I ended up under powered.
Anyone had experience of this sort of thing?
