Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

Did u have a wind meter? I’m guessing no. I wouldn't have believed it either if I wasn't watching. The flag was on a pole about 5 m high and it was totally lifeless. The kiter was about 200 m away from the flag. I have launched my 12 m Pulsion (light) in 4 kts from shore often but I wouldn't kite on...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

Haha I think we should stop with these silly wind exaggerations. It doesn’t help people who are looking to spend money on a kite only to find out it doesn’t perform in these conditions. 5 knots would probably be a decent minimum standard to start on a hydrofoil no matter wht brand foil kite. 2 knots...

Re: Open cell ram airs on water- anyone tried lately?

Here is my friends first video test with the new SoloShot 3 straight out the box. Minimum zoom.
I'm on my EdgeV9 8m and the wind was very gusty .
Camera was placed behind a minivan.
I like it alot. Miner flaws that can be fixed I think.

Getting mixed results on tracking. But...

Re: Soloshot3 a New way to film kiting

Ok so my soloshot opti 25 arrived. lets just say I'm not impressed with this thing at all. First of all it seems to have issues tracking and connecting especially in field mode. Worked for the first 10 mins then became problematic after that with connection and tracking issues . Finally gave up and ...
