Re: Levitaz Bionic

Update, bought the Bionic on the 110 mast. First day out had to move the mast to the rear to stop the bunny hopping but after that no probs. sweet stable ride, bloody quick. Will take a bit of time before I can push the speed through the gybes but all good fun. Thanks for your comments.

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional Test ride video.

If it allows more people to try foiling by being cheaper and easier to learn, great. Once you have learnt the basics you can move onto a directional foil for carving turns and transitions. I think the upfront cost of foils hold a lot of people back from trying it, more shops might be willing to offe...

Re: Nigel no mates

Foiling in our area is increasing in popularity. 10-15 knots and we can up to 5 foils out, over that most are back on surfboards or twintips. Below 10 knots and I'm often Nigel out there by myself on a 12 mtr foil, the normal comment I get is "na, I'll only kite in stronger stuff". But you you can a...

Levitaz Bionic

I’m currently riding freeride foils, can do flying gybe but only surface tacks. Looking at a quicker foil just to going places on the bay but will keep my freeride foil for playing in the chop. The Levitaz Bionic has been out for awhile and are available secondhand but I wonder if it may be too much...

Re: Cavitation

Ok, thanks, we will call it ventilation, air passing along the mast and onto the wing. Will try some crude fixes to start with, slap a vortex generator on either side, this will tap any air off and send it to the trailing edge and not down the mast. Failing that a wing fence, yep, crude but effectiv...

Re: Who rides the tallest mast?

I’m in two minds on this one, I have a 70 and 90 mast. I love the clearance the 90 gives me but the 70 is so manoeuvreable in and waves and chop even when depth isn’t an issue I tend to use it more.

Cavitation

I have two foils, all rigid carbon except for the rear stab. One is on a 70cm mast, the other a 90. Both front wings are similar, the 90 having a better finish but both sanded with 600. But I have cavitation issues with the 90, not the 70. The 70 has downward winglets, so tried it on the 90, still c...

Re: Pansh shipping time to the states

You should receive a tracking number when the kite is shipped. Special orders, eg colour or material take 2 weeks to build. Mine took 3 weeks after ordering to get to Oz

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Just ordered a set of flat carbon MTB bars from China, stupidly cheap and North bar ends will fit straight on. Just have to work out the centre hole, 31mm bulge in the middle, enough for an insert, or add something externally. Will be plenty strong enough for kiting, a lot more load when used on a M...
