Re: Jumping with a smaller kite 7m Bandit 2016

I owned the 2015 7m Bandit and found it a bad jumping kite. Rode it back-to-back with a Best TS 7m and there was a big difference in jump performance and ease of landings. I agree, the 9m Bandit is/was far superior and super easy to jump/land. If I were you, I'd borrow your buddies' 7m kites and tr...

Kai Lenny's new foil

Spotted these on Facebook and wondering who's foil this is? And the specs? Looks like he's using longer mast and higher AR wings than the usual Go Foil / Naish surf foils

Re: F one Bandit 9m 2018 V’s 2017

"It’s the fastest 9m kite I’ve ever flown, and I’ve been flying what are billed some of the best wave kites on the market in recent years."
That's quite a claim. Think i'm going to have a go.

Re: F one Bandit 9m 2018 V’s 2017

Thanks, i note you also had the 9 more depowered, maybe that's why less bar pressure than 12. I like the hangtime of my 12m B10, but struggle to get proper height on it. The 9 boosts much better, but i really like the agressive little 7m B8. Such a lively kite with massuve boost and precision steeri...

Ianw, had any more time on the 9m? It sounds like it more aggressive like the B8 was?

Re: Big wings

1600cm2 is pretty much where downwind SUP/Surf foil wings are at now, so you are on the right track. -- Gunnar Sure? I thought the large Go-Foil and Naish wings are 1250ish? I am talking about the most recent foils, not production stuff that is about a year old. -- Gunnar Thanks for the tip-off. I ...

Re: Production carbon mast composition

I broke my Moses Vorace mast yesterday and got to see the construction...clearly two halves bonded with a thin white foam core. I believe the engineering of carbon is all about the skin and not a core...but wondered if some are solid layers of carbon? I would think layup would be difficult to do so...

Re: Plate mount bolt-in Duo option

Cool idea. Have you kited duo surfboards? I have been curious to try but haven't done it, 90% sessions this year have been flat water and lighter wind learning to foil. There are some interesting but not widespread designs from "twingle" fin boards 1-3" apart to the duo which looks 5-6" apart. I be...

Plate mount bolt-in Duo option

Hi, just thought i'd share back to the group an option for plate mount that seems to work (i haven't been able to break it.. yet). I've been working on getting a plate mount fitted to a surfboard for strapless kite-foil, foil-surf and normal surf. The idea was to make a foil surfboard with two longb...
