Re: Spitfire club

Mmmm that Aussie sense of humour missed the target I got it . . . and had a chuckle :) I wanted to get a set of the XXLW wings but was waiting for the white version. Have been riding the black XLW set for the past 7 or 8 months and have never gone back to try a normal setup as I really love the car...

Happy to recommend this beast for kitesurfing


What wind strength and kite size?

Is it going to replace the big Naish wing at this stage?

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Will the xxlw wings fit on the current mast/fuse or if not what adaptions will be needed? Thanks Answer is yes . . . however, my understanding is that the larger wings require that the mast have the beefed up attachment plate at the board end. Also . . . no jumping apparently. I would be keen to kn...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

The XXLW wings aren't good for jumping though correct? I have a new spitfire with both the normal and XLW wings waiting for me once I get off my deployment. Hopeing the XLW wings are similar to SS hoverglide to get up on foil as quickly. =Jason- The XLW wings get going early and are nice to jump :)

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

If you compare the white and green (anhedral wing) and the white and blue (flat wing) we also change the height of the vertical fin (4.0cm for the flat wing of the white and blue wing, and 2.5cm for the white and green one). The target is to have the same yaw effect Hi Nicolas, Is this a typo? Did ...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

I just wet sanded it with 400g. Bar ends are hard plastic. It's an epoxy used in a 3D printer called a Form2. It's an SLA printer and I used what Formlabs calls "tough" which had relatively low stiffness but high elongation. Means it is behaving like Polypropylene. I dont think ends will be under m...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

I put one together using 25*21 carbon tube with 21*19 CF tube inserts and 3D printed bar ends. 200 g so far. Looking like it will cost me about 150€ for complete bar and lines. I've ordered kitelines and leaders from premium ropes and will use a non-c-loop release my friend made. No central depower...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

That's the main knock on spitfire, have to be going fairly fast to get up, . . . I am not sure I agree with that statement. The XLW wings do not need much forward speed to get up . . . though more than one of those Takuma wings. I think the original comment was for the normal spitfire. The XLW set ...

Also supposedly a carbon version of spitfire is coming...

I think it is still the alloy fuse and same G10 wings . . . just a fuse designed to mount the spitfire setup to their normal carbon mast. Maybe I am wrong about the fuse being aluminium but the wings are supposedly the same.
