Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

If I recall properly, in the movie below I was using front XXLW wing. Check after 1’ https://youtu.be/ZxXj2HXW_D0 Slow speed attracted stall many times. Also ride close to surface reduce lift additionally, pushing me to increase AoA. Thanks for the video. Its interesting to see pioneering at work -...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

Thanks for the feedback. When you tried various wings behind a boat, you preferred the Carver wing. Why are you choosing the Spitfire rear wing for mono? The rear wing of the Spitfire may be quite similar in characteristics to a regular kitefoil front wing. As there are few profiles with COP moving...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

I’m not sure if there is a specific Spitfire Windfoil in planning but I’m going with what’s there. Thanks. I knew Nicolas was working on what design changes are required for a Spitfire Windfoil. It will depend on his results, but I think a canard design could have good characteristics for windfoili...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

The Spitfire Windfoil XXLW is with 90cm mast. With a clear no jumping directive from Zeeko. Mine is on its way, and while I expect it to be slower and draggy-er than a normal Windfoil. It will be great to try with a board that will allow also Sup and Surf foiling wit same kit. As mono setup. Has an...

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

You mention that you are using parts from the XXLW Windfoil. I have only seen the Surf and Sup version of the XXLW released and thought the Windfoil was still being developed?

Re: Half a Zeeko windfoil = Spitfire monofoil

So what is wanted is an adaptor for a main wing to bolt straight to mast. What about mast position on board? Mast should go some 10cm forward. I drilled additional hole in back Spitfire XXL wing and bolted it directly to mast. Fitted well. Most wanted is a foil with COP travel forward at lower AoA....

Re: landing kite by yourself

I often kite by myself or land while others are out still and it works. I always put the kite a kite width above the water/beach, just touch the lower backline so it starts falling and right as it touches the beach, climb the front line quickly, then Y and then pull the higher front line. Anything ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

There were some Wichard ideas on Page 18. http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2385302&start=170 I wrote to Wichard, and pointed out it would be possible to redesign the Wichard to completely replace the chickenloop funcionality, but I got no reply and presumably they were not interested. T...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Yesterday tried front XXL wing. A bit higher speed was needed and it become quite comfortable. Also max speed was higher making comfort speed bandwidth wider. So, tried carver once again. Success. I liked this wing the most. Widest speed bandwidth. So tried Zeeko carbon race wing. Succes. Rideble. ...
