Re: Pansh Aurora2 19m with Zeeko Carver

Sergio, In which country are you riding ? I must say I admire your skills on HF and race kite. Do you actually think that all the complexity of the sketches you show above is worth it ? To me i would simply suggest to either stock to traditionnal 1 : 1 or modify to 1 : 2 if depower stroke or turning...

Re: Pansh kites for snow kiting

for everyone following-up I repeat herebelow my answer to your questions on Personal Message : " I use a 4 line classic bar ; For a 19m aurora it is possible that a 2:1 bar can help making it turn. 19 m is great ont he water if your TT is very large ; Low end will be better than the 15m LEI, but far...

Re: Pansh Aurora2 19m with Zeeko Carver

From my experience with pansh and 2 : 1 bar : - i used a 2 : 1 bar on a aurora 22m : It was really helpful : improvement on turning but mainly on depower indeed - for a aurora 15m i did not felt a 2 : 1 was useful if you use a large bar . So i have not tried 2 : 1 on the 15m. - i aso compared 1 : 1 ...

Re: Pansh kites for snow kiting

For an accurate advise you need to precise your ride objectives and conditions : Your weight, your board TT size,Hydrofoil ) , your snowkite style (Mountain or flat), and snowquality (Deep or ice) ;
Generally speaking a15 will be more all-round kite specially for snow.

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list

For example it allows to recover more easily when turbulences of the mountains can catch the leading edge for a frontstall. You can also punctually force the kite to keep lower in the sky when you fear to get an instability at the zenith or extreme wind window. Maybe you have experienced it with you...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list

Just one remark for people interested in Ultra light cloth : On both the Aurora v2 (15m) and A15 (9m) that I have received , Pansh removes the magnetic blow-off valve ; I suppose it it to save some additional weight ; ... not that I think it is a compulsary thing, but it is good to know. BTW having ...

Re: Viron1/2 is anyone using them?

I had the v1 in dlx version (6m) which design is close to the v2 (dlx for the v2 as well). Good for kids but needs at least 8 knots to fly properly. What is really great is its almost automatic relaunch and absence of power when sheet out. However it turns slow , specially when powered. And upwind a...

Re: snow kiting - which is better? skies or board?

Great table. Good remark for freestyle with a surfboard. I would add that : - in marginal winds, skis allows to move ahead and against the wind to tension the lines and keep the kite in the air. - Upwind angle is also more efficient and easier to maintain in irregular winds. - skis can become less c...

Re: Freeride kite for hydrofoiling

Thanks for the answer, I have seen the Mono flying many times , and some videos too. The only concern is because the price and it will replace my bigger vegas, unique kite for TT and Hydrofoil. It means using it : 60% foiling 30% TT with chops until 20 knots 10% wave session till 20 knots for this ...
