Re: Kite choices for foiling in high winds ?

At 80kg, I use a Cloud C5 3.5m from 20kts and up. Great little kite and fantastic to go down wind with as well. I look forward to our strong sea breezes so I have an excuse to use it. My next size up is an Ozone Catalyst 6m which I use from 15 - 18kts. I think a Reo 5m will be my next purchase.

Re: First foil - Slingshot hoverglide ?

Another vote for the Hover Glide. I bought mine in Feb this year and it has been, and still is, fantastic. With the short mast I was up and riding over 100m in my first hour. I still use the 60cm mast for shallow water riding and have kept the 40cm mast to teach 3 of my friends. They all got up on t...

Re: Power.

I'm still new to foiling and love the feeling of riding as small a kite as possible. I had a go of a friends 14m Apollo in 10 to 12kts recently and it scared the shizzle out of me. Barely enough wind to keep the kite flying but when up and going on the foil, the apparent wind generated by the effici...

Re: Did I just invent a new trick ? (Probably not)

Really nice riding. I enjoyed watching that. I've never seen that move before so it could be new. I liked the hand plant flip you do on the board as well. Very smooth.

Re: Short masts

I'd go for the 28" mast so you have a real point of difference and better shallow water potential. 36" is as long or longer than many manufacturers longest masts. I think my longest Slingshot Hover Glide mast is 35.5".

Re: Groundhog day.

I just had a foil 2 days ago after a 7 week layoff. Straight line foiling felt surprisingly good with only 1 or 2 foil breaches/crashes. Gybes (on water) were pretty patchy but getting better towards the end of the session. Maybe 30% success rate. I have plateaued a bit now with my learning and need...

Re: Total beginner advice

I've learnt to foil on a SS Hover Glide and it has been great. The short mast options offer a real benefit for learning too.
