Re: Power.

Lately I do enjoy bit more power on tap as long as it does not require larger kite than 9m.

Re: Why not more canards ?

Just wondering, it seems the Zeeko canards works awesome and everyone is excited about these :D Curious now, why no more brands offer canards ? Too early, or some downsides too ? Sorry, cant help wondering if one or another :-? 8) PF I wonder about it myself. Perhaps others tried and failed to make...

Re: sitting on the board to relaunch

Absolutely! Some local kiters seem to have a serious difficulty to overcome their anxiety about foil board doing something strange, but I find it easier to control while sitting on it rather than holding it and swimming. I've done it in overhead steep windswell with wind ~30 without any control issu...

Re: Best Foilboard for Travel

Levitaz Exo, 125x43x4, travels well. While not very thick, still has a bit more floatation than many pocket foil boards.

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Of course it's legit. Both wings still creating lift, bigger wing in the back... Only changed the ratio between the wings a little bit... Why wouldn't it be a canard? I don't have the wings in front of me to compare sizes. XLW front wing is quite large compared to standard front, so I thought it mi...

Re: New foil from Ozone

Only kite I know personally in that category is Matrrixx3, but I don't know how it compares to those kites. It is light weight kite anyway. I only tried a large size Matrixx3 (18?), so hard to compare accurately. Did not impress me at all other than the ease of use. Partly because of this I did not...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Did you try XLW wings? I did not use them in more than 16-17 knots yet so perhaps there is a limit. Simply winds were not stronger than that here. However I find XLW very useful in learning new stuff in stronger than light winds. Even after many weeks of use I'm still surprised how forgiving it is. ...

Re: Ozone Chrono V2 vs Hyperlink

You may consider what kind of riding you plan on doing with this kite. Low end will be quite similar unless you get UL version of chrono. Chrono should give you more top end speed and slightly better upwind/downwind, perhaps more hang time. HL is better for fun riding, turns and jumps with almost fo...
