Re: Perfect Foil Kite Size to Reach the Extreme Low End with Hydrofoil

The topic title is already wrong: there is no such thing as a perfect foil kite size for the extreme low-end riding! You could ask the best suited foil kite for this. I am looking for this for myself for quite some time now. And personally I think there is no really good suitable kite yet available....

Re: zeeko air

One of the reasons why it is not a strutless kite is the relaunch ability. Nicolas himself said this before.

Did you try to reverse launch it, by pulling in the steering lines?

Indeed relaunching any kite under 10kn is challenging!
