Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Impressions

You see instantly on which side it pulls and and then you pull the opposite back line. I had successful relaunches of my Flite Gen4 14.5 with this technique in less than 10 knots so I guess it shouldn't be a problem for the 10 in 12 knots. It's a technique that requires finesse, too much or not enou...

That is actually what I ended with but even in 10-11 knots. But I find a bit hard to grab the front line.
Thanks
If your bar releases on one front line, just grab your safety line and pull, no need to go up the Y and grab the front line !

Re: Peter lynn aero

Lots of good deals on Aeros on the facebook group kiteracing2hand but almost none on the pictures of the big international events (Kitefoil Gold Cup, Hydrofoil Pro Tour etc.).

Is this kite competitive with R1V2s, Sonic Race or Enata ?! If yes why this situation ?

Re: Club 50

My personnal objective is 40kts ! I'm hoping foil kites will help me go faster, my current best speeds are on inflatables. What wind speed do you get your top speeds in? 15-20 it winds seem to be my best. After that it's too choppy at my spots. 15-25 kts but it's offshore so it's flaaaaaaaat ! :P T...

Re: Club 50

Should I change the unit used by the club from kmh to kts then? :wink: I don't know for the rest of the world but in France for any speed related to the sea or ocean, the unit we use is knots so that's what I'm used to. Do you think that 50kts is possible on a foil? Pretty sure the 50kts barrier on...

Thanks BraCuru !

I had really good conditions lately and improved my best speeds !

I didn't analyse my track with GPS AR yet but the readings on my GT-31 were a max speed of 36,9kts (1 sec) and 34,8kts best 10 seconds :)
