I agree, that is why it will be so hilarious seeing young inflatable studs gettin their asses whipped by psycho grannies.

I saw a post somewhere that Cabrinha has a team of paragliders looking into foils for them...that should say something about them...not sure whether the Psycho will succeed in competing against the LEI, but I hope it does. It'll really put a spanner in the works and change the outlook on the market. Then we'll have the LEI's vs foils in comps. Makes things interesting...

Sort of like the opinions on diesels a couple of years ago...now look at them...so much for dead...BMW won Nuremburg 24 hour in a 320D that does 0-100km/h in 5 seconds...

I wouldn't write off foils yet...kitesurfing is still a young sport and there are a lot of things that can change.

I am with Jo there. It is just a matter of time and people will be seeing more foils in international competitions. My Psycho 12.5 demo kite has landed today, so I am excited, and looking forward to giving an average mans review of the ultimate foil, coming from 1 year of experience on Airblasts! I am sure it is going to be an unforgetable experience..

To any Israeli's on this post, you will be able buy the Psycho through me. Check out the latest news on http://www.kitesite.co.il :grin:

In 5 years, there will be no such thing as an inflatable kite. You read it here first, folks!

The new guerilla ARC will change the way people look at foils. Close-minded kitesurfers who care more about brand and appearance will be the ones to suffer when others switch for performance.

Foils and Lei's will both exist over 5 years :wink:

Just choose the kite that fit's you best...

I hope Peter Lynn has improved his quality management, else the G-Arc won't change a thing...

The Hi-arc isn't as good as it's prototype, the WARP, i hope this isn't treu for the G...

have fun, Henry

I think the rule of physics dictates that a single skin foil can fly at a higher angle of attack at a set speed than a dual surface foil, and in kiting (which is relatively low speed when talking about wind dynamics) , running a high angle of attack is beneficial in providing maximum lift.

This is not what I see on the water, quite the oppisite.

Well we'll see what happens on the water..... If Naish ever out with a foil...... then we'll know somethinz up!!

I'm turning into a stubborn deflatable user but the ARC breed is calling......

If i do go foil then i'm more likely to go Peter Lynn as opposed to flysurfer as there are NO pshychos in Auckland and NZ is the home of Peter Lynn with ARC's everywhere there isn't tubes.....

BLOWN AWAY :smile:
