Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Same for "tourists stand-up paddles" or even surfers : now we can ride together and share a "hello ! ".

Nothing snobish, why insulting us ?

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

New test today in waves (1.5m to 2m) and light wind (7-8 knots) ; some local foilers on the spot but none believed they could go so their kite stayed in their car . So i rode alone while I have a "medium-poor level in waves" (*) : waves are quite rare on my home spot vs light wind). Large foil wing ...

Re: 6m viron or unity for waves ?

No comparison but just a test of the viron 4m (bought for my child ) that i made in big waves on big wave hydrofoil : not really adapted. In details : Pros : -very secure, - good depower when you let the bar go, - not too mobile which can be a good point in high winds - very good drift - stability i...

Re: Kite Lines: which ones are used by the pro?

just a picture of my home-made connection 0.8mm vs 1.1 mm I did on my sk99 lines ; the aim is to have the 3 first metres with a thicker line to resist the wear during loops:

Re: Pansh Genesis and some tuning

Feedback from a Friend who owned the v1 first ; he tested static on the beach , in very light wind : - line length is ok out of the bag for standard bar ( previous one needed long pigtails on front lines) - kite is stable - turns slowly (light wind has certainly not helped ...) - deflating zips stil...

Re: Large compact wings for surfimg on a hydrofoil

It just makes you slow. With my poor level in waves, it is too me an advantage to "stay" in the wave and not cross it too rapidly ; wave goes slowly , so it is appreciated to limit the natural faster acceleration of your hydrofoil IMO ; also useful to turn on the wave with a small radius ("around t...

Re: Large compact wings for surfing on a hydrofoil

I have only one mast, 90 cm; I would not use it with less because of the span of the wing, it gets out of the water quite early when you take some angle to take more speed; I think I was at about 18-20 knots one day with it (I was racing with a friend on a foilboat "Waszp", very fun); What I love is...

Large compact wings for surfing on a hydrofoil

I would like to launch a general discussion on the recent development of very large HF wings to be used in waves. I bought a Ketos 1200 this summer and after a wired feeling of foiling so low during the first test-on-flat session, i must say I finally love the ability to follow slowly the waves cycl...

Re: Pansh Genesis and some tunring

You shall use the rings as if they were eight knots : you lock the connection loop of your line just above the knot that acts as a slide stopper.

It is just less prone to tangling compared to eight knots .

Re: Untangling a bridal

I do the same as Jakemoore. Off course it is far easier with no wind. I start to identify the loops that may have appear and unloop them. Then just by tentionning it should work
