Re: R1 vs Chrono

Flown the V1 12m once, and indeed a wild beast for sure! With not much foil kite experience basically not the kite to go for. The V2 is stable, does not overfly, much more heavy (v1 12 is approx 2200gr) and does not have the same performance. Flown the 9 and 13m of that. Not a racekite. Should not h...

Re: Production carbon mast composition

Again, structural stiffness and torque (twist) resistance has nothing to do with a core. Only the outer layers are responible for all that. Take a metal pipe. Compare it with the same diameter solid and with a wall thickness. They will be as strong and stiff, but the hollow one will be much lighter....

Re: Water starting Technique different?? Short Mast vs Long??

Only difference you will notice for the waterstart if you do it strapless with the same board & foil - only variation will be mast length - is timing: a short mast will sink a bit quicker than a long one. With straps there will be no difference! Still I do not believe in those short masts. Nice for ...

Have not rode any other boards since. I am with Peter_Frank that I have not (yet) said my waveboard goodbye, and I told myself only to r...

Re: First Hydrofoil tips and advice

Also, I keep hearing different opinions on straps vs strapless. Would it be too much of a challenge to learn strapless straight from day one? I did from day one, and never tried with straps ever. After two years I can say this: Yes, it is possible. But with at least one strap up front your progress...

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

The Sonic Race is not the 3rd generation of the Sonic! It is a separate product line, next to the Sonic2. The R1 V3 has been taken of the market recently by Ozone itself, so V2 is still it. An official released Diablo3 is not there yet. And still F-one sells the cheaper (less expensive fits better)...

Why would you want that?
Because Benoit will never be able to distribute this kite in large quantities. He only makes kites on request.

I would love to test one for example. The same for the concept'air Pulsion! Not possible unless i meet up with one of the French kite owners.

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

I love my Sonic2 11.4, but this sounds like the holy grail of Flysurfer, while the Sonic2 is already a very good racekite!

Looking at the pricetag and that of it's competitors (R1V2, Diablo2...) it looks like a very special niche product for serious racers only

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

Very interesting developments!
I wish one of the big brands will pick up this niche market very soon!
Liquid Force knew where to find Benoit when they needed a high performance foilkite in their program. I wish they would contact him for this wave foilkite concept!
