Re: Peter Lynn introduce the Aero V2

I bought a used Sonic 2 13m for 1000€. Been out 3 times now in 7-14 knots. Once in 6 knots.
I'm new to foil kites and on Hydrofoil. I'm not having any problems and I make rider errors, riding under kite for example. I'm not having any problems flying it.

Re: Slingy's Moses 633

That's not to say you shouldn't buy Chinese products sold as Slingshot or any other brand/de...

Re: What are the white patches on boards?

"Sanding coats aren't usually a different resin, but a board builder will more often than not put an additive in to give it more desirable qualities for sanding." That's what I mean.
