Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

Jakemoore,

On another thread IWB2 says his sweet spot on Hyperlink 7 is 14-18. Rides it 12-22.
7 seems to have a lot of overlapping with the 9.
Seems like I need a 6m. Perhaps a Soul??

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

IWB2, I find reverse landing in 14 -15 knots a bit scary still. I'm putting kite a 10 or 2 at Edge of window and backing it down from there. A friend of mine with long foil kite experience does a teather landing like this: He attaches teather to the c-loop, or center lines. Unhooks and takes off lea...

Re: ideal LEI for freeride/race

I would guess the Ozone edge is good lei for upwind speed. You said you don't want to go for foil kites, but you should consider them, especially for the kind of riding you are doing. I've been kiting since 2002, and I recently got an Ozone Hyperlink 9m UL, Have 7 sessions so far. Lite and high end....

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

Interesting discussion for me as new foil kiter. I've only flown the hyperlink 9 UL. Today was constant 14 knots and it was magic for me. Out 2 hours. Last 7 sessions in a row on the hyperlink... I don't see need for bigger one really because winds 8 -10 knots here are having deep lulls. Like today ...

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

Yesterday, before I got the hyperlink 9m, I would have been on my 7m North Mono. And it would have been much more jerky and difficult due to rough water state. In 20 knots+ I'll always have landing help, there's either other kiters or beach helpers when travelling. My friend has levitaz cruiser and ...

Re: old fart round the world tour

Griz,
was in Dahkla 3 years ago, many friends been there this year. No change.
Yes it is most isolated place on planet, but that's the attraction. 1 week is enough. Kite 100% nothing else except desert.
Easy kiting there.

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

Hi Jakemoore, Excellent info! That looks like very similar wind I had: 17-20 mph with some lulls. 9 ok, but yes, mega speed on down loops. Some hard falls doing them. And 5 too small.....Matches the chart that there is very little overlapping with 9/5. And I'm not into the loopy kite whipping around...

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

Does anyone have hands-on experience with the Hyperlink 7 and 5m on hydrofoil? I´d like to know what top end is on 7m with Hydrofoil and low end of 5m on hydrofoil. I am 75 kg dry and riding medium freeride wings. Like i said above, im finding comfortable top end of the 9m at 10-17knots. ( 7 knot ra...

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

Hej WH,

When will the 13UL kite not fly and drop down ? and whats your top end on hydrofoil ?

I´d love to get a 13 UL for local hydrofoiling, and a smaller foil kite like a 7 or 6 for below my 9m Hyperline UL for travelling. (Tons of money though)

Re: Hyperlink size recommedation

I've had 6 sessions on the hyperlink 9m UL now. Today I was near top end. Flying 20 m lines on standard rear line knot, and on moses fluente 550 wing. Wind was solid 15 knots but increasing ( not gusts, but increasing for like 5-10 minutes) to 19 knots, then back to 15-17 for 10 minutes . It was 50-...
