Re: Cloud9 foil feedback

Slowboat, the S24 is the better one for kiting. The P27 is a bit slower, more lift. P27 floats super high. the board on its side, so it won’t drift downwind to you.

Re: Large compact wings for surfing on a hydrofoil

This all gets tricky because some big wings are thin, and from a surfers point of view, they suck pumping into waves compared to other thicker wings. That’s part of the reason no two people agree here. In general, I think the Naish L, Cloud IX P27, NP Medium, GoFoil Kia, are the largest anyone needs...

Re: "Thruster" (Liquid Force) wing for beginners

The thruster low speed claim is not BS. It’s what makes the thruster so easy for beginners. You can jibe the thruster as easily as a huge SURF wing. It’s crazy, I know. Try one. I ride surf wings a lot, and I also ride the thruster a lot. I choose my thruster when I want to rip long distances on a ...

Re: Naish XL surf wing

I don’t like the XL kiting. L is better. XL too stiff turning. I could feel no advantage, only negative over L for foiling. Leave the XL for other sports, windsurfing, SUP etc.

My experience....gong strutless, no batten model. Great for awhile, then grew tired of some of the fickle and very difficult relaunch positions with wet canopy stuck to water and water trapped by leading edge.

Today I Foil one strut kites. Much happier. Not only better relaunch, but more wind range.
