Re: How to jump on Sonic? Or any foil?

I have flown foil kites since day one and have a sonic 15 at the moment (had it for 3 years now) For sure when the kite is above you in 15 knots, you pull the bar in all the way and the kite should hint at backstalling, if it backstalls in 15 knots with the bar in then you need to pull in a tiny bit...

Re: King of the Air 2018 - All Info

I think weight has a big factor and also height to a certain degree as weight is your ballast and height is your leverage. Looks like the guys going biggest these days are around 80-85kg and tall. They have the weight to keep the kite down and the leverage to hold the edge for longer. Jessie didn't ...

Re: King of the Air 2018 - All Info

Anyone already mention and notice, Ruben Lenten no longer a Red Bull sponsored team rider? Didn’t notice...how did you? Just saw that Red Bull no longer on his board and kite. At first I thought maybe he just didn’t have the decals but I just looked on the Red Bull website and he isn’t on there any...

Re: WOO gen1 vs gen2 accuracy

The thing with the Woo is that you need to get past it as the reason your session was good or not. When I bought into it ( I was the first in my area and probably pretty much first in the UK ) if I had a session and the woo didn't record correctly, it would totally bum me out. Now I put it on, forge...

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

I'd say if you are unhappy, then talk with the manufacturer.

I let spotz know over the course of months that I was unhappy and concerned, had I known they were going to go belly up I would have pressed harder.

For me, yours looks fine but I can see why you are concerned.

Re: Zeeko has terrific customer service/ support... what about other brands?

Yeah, I won't be getting involved with companies like Spotz any time soon. My shark mast failed, I had problems from the start and they assured me nothing would go wrong. It is now unusable and the company has closed up shop. With a baby on the way there is no way I can afford to replace my foil fo...

Re: Moses 2018

Most of the good foils (freeride and race) can go at 30 knots.

It's how fast upwind and at a mental angle that shows the real race foils. Downwind as well.

Follow someone good and it will blow your mind!
