Re: New High Jump French Record - 24m

Good idea (height could even be set via the drone GPS), but will not work in 40kn GPS is too inaccurate for height measurement and it measures from WGS-84 geoid so you need two inaccurate measurements first the sea level and then jumps, and GPS height accuracy changes over time as birds fly in spac...

Re: Going even bigger foil kite, what size?

Re: New High Jump French Record - 24m

Put a drone at 20m high (use laser distance meter to set height) and film distant horizon (not a treeline close to site). Every kiter above horizon level of drone's video is higher than 20m.

Re: Going even bigger foil kite, what size?

Everytime I and my friends have tried back to back same model foil kites we have chosen 15m over 18m for free riding / twin tip (speed3, speed4, sonic1 and sonic2). 15 being more agile is easier to fly on ultra low wind practically giving same low end for 70-110kg riders.

Re: snow kiting - which is better? skies or board?

You did your first flite with a Sonic2 from flysurfer? Wow :o Sounds like this is a all terrain kite for all levels :thumb: Initial snowkiting lesson was with Ozone Samurai 5m which I lent and flew a lot. My first own kite was Flysurfer Speed3 19dlx on which I started snowkiting on skis and next su...

Has anyone actually first learned to kite on snow and skis before water?
Sure, 90%-99% of kiters in my country starts that way because snowkiting is easier.

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).
