Re: My pansh Aurora2

Just got a 12m Aurora 2, also in the ultralight fabric. First impressions: - Weight: 2.15kg - The fabric is much stiffer and crispy. Basically the same as good quality silnylon spinnakers. Compared to the standard fabric, the ultralight fabric should stretch and distort a lot less under load. It wi...

Re: Wind meters?

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61NITS4y8ML._SY355_.jpg You can find these for $20 on ebay. They're rugged and actually they're non-electrical: it's just a magnet inside, the headphone jack is just a convenient physical mount. The app is nice because it's graphing the measured spee...

Re: First Foil

For water use with a TT, I'd recommend setting your expectations low. I bought a 15m foil this past spring (the "Chinese Speed3 Lotus") because I was comfortable with foilkites from snowkiting, and wanted 10kt wind capability on water with a TT. Rode LEI's on water up to that point, biggest in my qu...

Re: Pansh Kite aurora II 12 m2 ULtralight....just a disaster !!

Judging from the picture, I am guessing it flies well? I'm just a noob, but I'm happy with it ;) Flew fine out of the bag, so far has survived a number of days of light crashes and beach torture without evidence of damage... relaunches on water at least 75% of the time, heh. https://youtu.be/Qh-iwA...
