Re: Marginal wind kites ?

I am buying one (an ultralight Kitech FRS 12 m2), to see if I can move my marginal low end - we'll have to see if it does or dont :thumb: 8) PF 27g material? I love my 12m but yes it would benefit from a lighter material in the 12/15/18m range. I like it so much that i am leaning toward a 9m or 6m ...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Kitech FRS 12m is 5.2 AR. As Peter said: "And again, some will choose the biggest possible kite, others will choose a sufficiently big kite to obtain their personal marginal wind target - but still have both more upper end and more turning ability/fun." I am in the second camp as for now and really ...

Re: Shinn el Stubbo Zeeko Aluminium 90cm Hydrofoil

I did learn on that exact setup last year during a trip to Cuba. In fact it's exactly a year ago (i just came back again from Cuba). It took me about 3-4hrs to be able to foil on the Zeeko/90cm with El Stubbo. It was in perfect conditions which help tremendously. For example, my friend tried the sam...

Re: concept air pulsion

You can't use any bar with foil kites. First, you need a single front line security. And second, not all security system are ok with foil kites. For example a Core Sensor2 bar does not work with the Pulsion because when you flag the kite there is still some residual pull in the kite. Best to try you...

Re: Who is an ambidextrous foiler?

I am as good or as bad on both side :) TT, surf or hydrofoil i feel no difference. Turning to toe side or heel side, riding toe side, jumping, wave catching, etc.... To be honest and strangely there is one move that i do only in one side and this is riding blind on a TT but since i only do HF now i ...

Freeriding with my Shinn Jackson 145 and F wing 90cm mast

Little Cloud Pelican 13m: 7-12 knots
Core XR5 8m: 12-22 knots
Core GTS4 6m: 18-26 knots

I also use sometimes my XR5 11m but i prefer the 8m most of the time.

Re: Nigel no mates

At our local spot last year there was only one guys riding on foil. This is a spot where 90% of our riding days are below 15 knots. After many have seen the performance in 7-11knots from the guys foiling a few guys are now foiling this year. I think we are now at least 10+ foilers (and i am one of t...

I did the same mistake on my first day of foiling with the exact same setup :) I still remember saying in my head WTF it is sooooo hard to foil!! ;)
