Re: 19.6m boosting on flatwater.

Statistical analysis of OPs session: - avg: 10.48 - stddev: 3.61 - confidence 95%: 0.64 I did not look time-wise how often you jumped time-wise related to jump height (if there is a big cap between prev and next jump related to 19m stated jump). But below picture shows 3 spikes relative other other...

Looking to learn how to kiteloop, so looking for a good used kite around 3 years old to learn on. 99% of my kiting has been with foil kites so I've been out of the loop on inflates. What do you guys suggest? Thanks

a small one!

7 or 9 and a little underpowered.

Re: How fast are the fast ones ?

yes at 20 knots you are taking sea birds by surprise and making power boaters and jet ski riders do a double take. The birds comment is spot on. I have lost count of the amount of times I have sneaked up on birds, when they eventually see you they break left or right in a mad panic. I got within ab...

Re: How fast are the fast ones ?

Peaks for me (very short) at what feels crazy fast on my Moses 558 wing on Vorace mast are around 21 knots. This is with Flysurfer speed 5's which I tend to ride on the large side. Seems hard to believe guys going at double. Look up some vids by SparD - there is a vid of him doing some nutty speed,...

Re: How fast are the fast ones ?

Your friend is super fast Peter!!!! One of my friends with a 15m Flysurfer sonic race has done 40.01 knots which is mental in 12-14 knots of wind. He was on a Mikes Lab and he is very talented. Nico Parlier has recorded over 44 knots. Personally my fastest is about 36 knots but that was only for a s...

Re: Progression of a roll tack , need help

Chuck a vid up and we can see.

I find most people have their weight too far back and don't carry enough speed into the tack.

Speed into the tack and getting that glide upwind while pushing your hips forward as you go past dead upwind normally leads to success, that and hundreds of attempts.

Re: Power.
