Re: RE: Kitech foil kites

I recently got a chance to demo the 9m from laszlo, and i'll be buying one in the 6m, specifically for hydrofoiling. so far i've used the ozone edge, wainman 7.5, flysurfer speed4 lotus 10m with the HF, and for what i'm after the fly4 was my favorite of them all. hangs in the sky in very little wind...

Re: Best foil kites you have never heard of!?

Coleman Thanks for the review. Where did you get a demo? Is it a local shop or were they willing to ship it to you? JD Laszlo at kitehydrofoilmiami.com is the dealer for these kites. He had the previous guy demoing it send it to me. I'll be handing it off to some folks in dallas next week. Get in t...

Re: Best foil kites you have never heard of!?

I was looking back through this thread, and I don't seem to see anyone mention Kitech kites out of Hungary. Not super high aspect, so not for racing. I haven't flown one...can anyone else comment on their performance? JD kitech.JPG As a matter of fact, i received the fly4 9m to demo last week. Had ...

Re: Learning Foil kites

Simple answer, if you want to try foil kites with your foil board for the purposes of eventually getting into some races then buy a chrono v2 My first foil kite is the sp4 lotus. It's super easy, fast and, great apparent wind and boost. But it's not going to compete in races against race kites. But ...

Re: Concept'air new Pulsion kite

^great writeup! The question with big foilkites isn't about lowend, it's about highend. They pretty much all hang in there in the low stuff, some better than others, but I'd be worried about where they get overpowered relative to the prevailing winds at my spot. That's why at my spot a 15m and 11m ...

Re: Tall black, stiff, fits between your legs and swings both ways.

so you get less than optimal stability and performance going both directions..AWESOME! where do i sign up? as to the accessibility factor, kitesurfing itself is not entirely accessible and thats a good thing. too many people will bring about more and more access problems. but i learned to foil in 2 ...

Re: Foil Kites - 4 knots ?

if my 10m speed4 lotus can just barely stay in the air then i have trouble foiling, on the surface feels like only a couple of knots....surely theres a bit more 20m up once the sp4 can sit near the side of the window and not back up then i can get foiling easily....so 5-7 kts is about the threshold...
