Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Going at the end of the week to a 10 day holiday kitecamp, so I only had less than 2 weeks to get a kite (build), and the choice was the FRS in ultralight, we will see how it works or not :naughty: 8) Peter Hi Peter Did you get your FRS kite yet? Have you tried it? My wife is telling me to just buy...

Re: Lecca-Lecca Minima 11m First Flight

Hi omg, not knowing / nevers seen your pumping skill, hard to say. If you can pump around without kite, than it will work for sure :wink: And also in for sure not more than 6 knts with 62 kg on a ca. 650 cm² monofoil, even on 17 m short lines, it worked fine, see 1:07 min around the church: https:/...

hey people who have tested the 11m, what's the lowend estimate for Onda 633 foil, please? I am 80kg, and look for a kite for marginal winds, say 6knots and onwards. Would the 11m fit the bill? I am pretty good at pumping the foil on plane etc.

Thanks! :jump:

Re: Foiling behind a boat

Anyway, getting this back on topic...I can't imagine doing 14-15 mph behind the boat, not when 6-8 was our sweet spot. Good luck! SENDIT! That is really interesting considering even with my LF Impulse foil which is a surf type foil my average speed is in the 10 knots range and max speed is around 1...

Re: Moses 2018

Want to pick everyone's brain - with a choice of masts 61cm/71cm/91cm which one you'd ride in (occasionally) shallow water? Even if you have 71cm but wish for 61cm, or you have 71cm but you wish you had 91cm - what mast length you'd consider ideal where water is chest to hips deep? Do you ever wish...

Re: Moses 2018

Okay, we know the trim has to be offset some, changing from normal Moses wings to the Onda and reverse. Laughingman, what about getting another board(s) instead?, where the tracks fit the 633 wing (AND also the smaller wings) That would solve your problem, as when you stand correctly, these wings d...

Re: Moses 2018

What would you guys recommend for a 125lb rider, she’s already foiling well on the happy foil. Medium aspect liquid force wings but I’d like to get her something with more glide so she can learn to jibe with flying foot switches etc. I have a Impulse foil but it’s got too much lift for her weight. ...

Price your gear to sell and
You get the stingy bastards who recognize you're selling it cheap and then they lowball you and refuse to pay shipping :roll:
Then you say no.... if the stuff is priced to sell you will get another offer soon.
