Re: Going even bigger foil kite, what size?

I have seen lots of threads where people are choosing between kites. I have the 15m, 18m and 21m Sonic Race kites. I prefer the 15m when I have enough wind, then I prefer the 18m when the 15m is a struggle and then go with the 21m when the 18m is a struggle. The 15m is more versatile and more fun, t...

Re: Fins for Nobile surfboard

I bought some on eBay that fit and worked just fine, I could not tell the difference.

Re: Banned At Miami Beach 25th Street

I will be staying in Miami Beach starting Dec 16th and sure hope they work it out by then.

I have seen both dumb kiteboarders and dump beach visitors, sounds like this was a case of a dumb kiteboarder.

Re: Extreme Lightwind... Amazed

I was out this evening and the wind was slowly dropping. I was using my 13m Sonic2 so I would not consider this ultra light wind, maybe 8 knots. It was getting close to sunset and would not have time to switch to a bigger kite so I tried the feet pumping and it helped. I was using my Nobile Zen boar...

Re: How fast are the fast ones ?

I can be out on the water on a free ride wing and thinking that I must be breaking some record only to find that I was going 20 knots. It can feel really fast if flying over chop and swells.

Re: Nobile splitboards. Please tell me why..

I have the latest carbon twin tip and paid $1,750. You can find them for less if you look around and often times can get the previous model for less. It now spend most of my time on the Zen foil split board and also have a 2018 on the way. The older ones are good and the new ones just keep getting b...

Re: Hydrofoil board for beginner, cheaper VS expensive

I would buy something with a durable wing to start with, G10 wing ect.. and aluminum mast. Get to the point where you are not running aground and then buy a nice carbon setup. The nicer setups are easier to ride, something like a Ketos FR2 or Levitaz or many others. I would skip the short mast, they...

Re: FS Speed 6

A Sonic 13 and the TT? Too difficult to handle? I think a Sonic2 13m and a TT is a great combo but it will handle differently than the well behaved Speed 5 kites. When I asked my dealer about buying them, he told me to stick with the Speed 5 kites. I bought the Sonic2 kites anyway and now I love th...

Re: FS Speed 6

I spend all of my time on a Hydrofoil. Because I can get away with a smaller kite, I always launch my Sonic 2 directly downwind. I think that helps a lot and reduces the need for pre-inflation. I get some air in the tips and some in the center, it takes some experience but you can slowly launch with...
