Re: Pansh Kite Fans

I have heard of another quite bad experience of an experienced foilkite user of Aeolus. Higher Aspect ratio's requires better fabrication tolerance and setting ... so A15 or Aurora are less prone to this problem vs Aeolus IMO.

Re: Pansh Kite Fans

On big interest of pansh bars is their largest model of 65 cm , quite rare and useful above 12m2 on pansh kites IMO . 60 cm still works but less agile.

Ps : i removed tge 5th lines of all my pansh kite that now connects to any standard 4 even line bar .

Re: viron 4m in waves with hydrofoil

Ok interesting. On a HF now, still 4m2 : Positive : - very safe at launch and in the sky (below 40 knots then wings shakes as a bird (in my memory of the 6m dlx, and it seemed to do the same in highest gusts like we see at the start of the video). Nothing dangerous. - stable and no closing in two. I...

Re: viron 4m in waves with hydrofoil

Good on you for showing the struggle in all its glory Regis - I was having flashbacks to the stormy onshore conditions I have tried to get out in on the foil. So damn frustrating , you hate the whitewater so much , if you try to start too soon your mast hits bottom, and you think it is never going ...

Re: Pansh Kite Fans

In 6m i do not think you have a lot of choice since a15 does unfortunattelly not exist below 9. Bar is cheap and Chicken loop is heavy, fragile and obsolete. However if you replace the CL like i did, the bar is acceptable. They have a limited depower which is the main cons of pansh. So for a beginne...

Re: Comparative risk of kitesurfing

yes for the automotive it is a bit tricky due to the possibility of several user in the same car ; actually I found no number of users nor use rate, but I read that french minister communicated on 1 death every 900 000 hours, which is directly the number I look for for my comparison ; but i do not k...

Re: Comparative risk of kitesurfing

Following the recent accident two days ago, I launched a discussion on french forum and did some values gathering for france area to compare risks; not focussing on causes here, just the objective (and cold) death numbers per activity type and per estimated hour of practice ; the idea is to assess h...
