Re: beginner foil

just the difference between the mast length. much easier to learn foiling on 60cm Can be difference in mast length yes, and can be difference in foil - but remember you rode one before the other, which means you learned a lot about what NOT to do, so you will probably be a lot better when riding th...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Really good input from so many :thumb: Size seems to matter a lot when really low, eventhough maybe in a different way than pull/power, as the peak power is possibly close to the same for kites over 12 m2 when not too short lines. But bigger kites in light fabric will have less wing loading so to sp...

Re: Ketos wave xl vs Moses Onda 633?

I just ordered a board with kfbox AND rails to be able to test other foils as well (onda was on my test list until I heard about the ketos 1200) I am >115kg so 1200 will be like the wave xl for you ...

Re: Ketos wave xl vs Moses Onda 633?

ketos 1200 can be used on kite fuselage How? The pictures in their website show 4 holes in a parallelogram shape instead of two or three in a row, and sold with a windsurf fuselage...

Re: Shoulders Forward?

True - it makes no sense as such for anything no... :wink:

Re: riding hands-up

So true Regis - I did it without a stopper on flat water some time ago, just to feel how you "glide" without any kitepower, and how everything were balanced. And now I do it for fun on waves, small windwaves or bigger ones everything works - put the kite up close to 12, let the bar fully out, so it ...

Re: Ketos wave xl vs Moses Onda 633?

Sorry, i ment Wave XL not XXL. I edited my post now. Thank you for all your answers, keep them coming... Aaaah, the Ketos WaveXL. It is 790 cm2 quite low AR. The Onda 633 is extremely low AR, and apparently (according to grigorib having measured) around 1190 cm2 so MUCH bigger and should maybe be c...

Re: Surf/kite wing crossover (impulse) for lighter rider

Just wondering if any one has tried the impulse (cloud24) or similar type wing who is a light weight like 130lbs? Is weight even a factor when it comes to foil size/style?
