Re: Importance of wing AR?

If you have loads of kitepower and just want it easy, you can go to even lower AR of course, but then you might outgrow the foil instead of having a fun foil for freestyle and waves :naughty: 8) PF Hi Peter, I have an alpine foil with a huge high AR wing. I am lately considering buying a takuma foi...

BRM Cloud control system

BRM CCS is the best control system I have ever tried because of two main reasons:

1) Safety (72cm of depower throw travel, one step full disconnection).
2) Comfort (no other system brings the bar so close to the body).

My question is: How would YOU improve the Cloud connection system?

Re: Kite for 6-10 knots

I use a 595 cm2 high AR wing for 6-10 knots, I find it works the best. Got bigger wings that can start earlier yes, but only used in the utmost marginal winds as they are more boring, and you dont get the same power once you are up as a faster wing. Meaning, if you just CAN get up foiling on a fast...

Re: Foil with my old Nobile Infinity board.

Yes, it will work perfectly, good size for this. If strapless the mast placement is not critical, but when using straps you have to place it correctly, but you know the positions from your Alpine board so would be easy :thumb: Are your Alpine board on its last days since you want to use your old wa...

Foil with my old Nobile Infinity board.

I have an old 6'2" Nobile Infinity board and am considering using it with my foil instead of buying the 5'1" Foil Split Infinity board.

Question: What can I expect from this board with my foil? (So far I have only tried my lovely Alpine race board with my Alpine foil).

Tks.

Why not? You just have to use a plate adapter, right?

Nobile Zen Split X Nobile Infinity Split

Why buy a Zen Split if I can use my foil on a Infinity Split? I could just put fins on the Infinity when the wind is too strong. Isn't it a good trade? tks
