Re: Modern wave kite

I recently rode an Airush Wave 7m and really liked it, light, good power for its size, easy relaunch, fast turn with steady pull and good drifting capability. Too bad I had to give it back..

Mostly where a person has spent significantly on an expensive foil and wants to get more from it in the form of wave riding for example. I think pricing in the 300 dolla...

What has appeared though is companies like Alpine possibly using elements from their earlier R&D to develop a wave solution that is slower to lift off and more maneu...

Is Taaroa developing a freestyle wing?
