Re: concave deck - how much is to much?

Personally prefer flat decks.
Also a lot easier to switch from board to board if both/all are flat.

Cheers,

Re: New foil from Ozone

I don't have any foilKites but the hyperlink is quite tempting. Has anyone modified one by removing the "hybrid" tube zippers? Even lighter weight for marginal winds? You are not the first with these thoughts, but in my opinion, try it and you will not be focused on this detail anymore. Cheers, Fra...

Anybody tried it in the winter mode with the fifth line ?
Not yet, but ordered the upgrade kits for the 9 and 12 to check it out.
Will have it in a few days.

Cheers,
Frank

Re: New foil from Ozone

I am impressed how well and stable the 12m Hyperlink does fly in very low winds. This video only partly shows this of course. https://youtu.be/06k78RbmIU0 I also tested the 12m hydrofoil racing yesterday with solid results while most other riders have been on bigger high performance kites. I am not ...

Re: New foil from Ozone

Interesting. Still need to give full on drift launching a try. No need for me so far really, but will just try it to get to know more about it. I can only say that the Hyperlink keeps impressing me, now after the 12m and 9m also the 7m. It handles gusty and super gusty conditions very well. When I n...

Re: New foil from Ozone

ok thanks, sorry I had missed Frank information. So not the lighter cloth in the world but should be a good point for robustness and watertightness Exactly, feels well balanced to me and flies very stable in very light winds. Also having in mind it is designed as an all-terrain kite it makes sense ...

Re: New foil from Ozone

Frank Rosin weighed the 12 : 2244 gr. I'll put mine on the scale tomorrow . And I think that was including the paper/cardboard sign that comes attached to the pigtails. Without it should be about 11g less :) Hyperlink 12m 2233g Hyperlink 9m 1822g Hyperlink 7m 1496 Cheers, Frank www.famousfrank.com

Re: New foil from Ozone

Sounds good to me . Do you feel it would have been better in a UL version ? The canopy looks similar to the winter's foils , not very different from the V2 . I never had Flysurfers so can't compare . I'm going to use it 70 percent snow and 30 percent water . Unless I become very confident with drif...

Re: New foil from Ozone

Frank , did you experiment with drift launch , if yes , how did you rig your kite and bar ? Also , any light air relaunches in deep water so far ? I have a 12 in hand but no downwind room for safety while practicing drift launch . I think many things could go wrong so I will wait for the water leve...
