Nice first flight. What was the wind speed for your outing?

It was pretty gusty and gusting between 16-22 knots..

I'm guessing you're around 75kg so flying the 3.5 in that wind range looked easy.

Was just reading the description on BigWinds site, they're saying riders may use up to 1 size smaller than previously. Apparently better drift capability too!

100kg on a 3.5 in 16-22 knots. I'd say Naish is not looking to be a runner-up in the wing market. Just ordered a 6m so will see how that goes.

I think that's just recognition that the s25 wings weren't especially grunty at the low end. They've made it stiffer to fix that and bring it more in line with market average is my guess...

Probably, which is a good upgrade thing for Naish.  I'm often able to be on my S25 5.3m when others (of similar or more weight) are using their 4.0's
