Club 50

Postby BraCuru » Sat Jul 08, 2017 5:05 am

If you are Speedy Gonzales join the club then:
minimum 50 km/h on the distance of 100 meters :idea:
It's 27,00kts.
Wonder to know how many of us can do it.
What kites and foils do you use it to break 50 km/h limit?
What about conditions of wind and water?

How many of us kept this speed over 500 meters?

Don't know about other applications but I use and recommend this one: http://gpsactionreplay.free.fr/

Still cant do it, maximum speed was 43km/h for 5sec ... on a Moses T40 board, 91 mast with 558 wing and 330 stabilizer. Kite 6m Naish ride in 20 knots of wind. It seems quite impossible to make the 50km/h for 100m with this setup, 558 producing alot of lift at this speed.

And Who joins the 30kn+ average over 500m Club?

Levitaz bionic 2017 with 11m Peter Lynn Aero UL on 11m lines, wind around 18-22kn with too little chop to notice. Also hit 24kn upwind that session and now everyting below 20kn upwind feels slow.

You are the first historic memebre of the Club 50 :)
Welcome :thumb:
Almost 56km/h on 500m.
24kts upwind sounds sick - can you check VMG?

It should be possible
Maybe you should try to move your feet forward a bit?

My best scores were achieved with 10-14m kites and flat water.
With HP558, which was the racing model of 2016, I could reach max 30kts and average 28kts on 500m.
This year Comet seems to be even faster :)

24kn peak was only around 50-45deg, so not better as 21kn around 40deg but training now to maintain a higher speed and better angle after that.

Comet is indeed a fast foil! But you need power to Go fast (and balls), 6m freeride tube and 20kn is a little on small side. We use a 9m foilkite in 20kn gusting to 26kn.

whatever - this is impressive!

O yeah! I was riding together with Maks Żakowski in 20-25kts on choppy Baltic and 2-2.5m waves last Monday.
Balls were required at least for me. Probably the best speed in such conditions I achieved. My eyes looked like this: :o :o

Does it count that I can gone 60kph on the mutant, 65kph on the landboard and 90 kph on the kitebuggy?

Havent gps'd the foil yet, But since I have no flat water or high aspect foil I doubt ill be cracking 50 kph anytime soon.....

But i'll keep it in mind if I ever find the right conditions to try!

I've got to run it through gps action replay, but recently hit a new max speed of 35.9 mph (about 57.8 kph) on delta Hydrofoil, 11m sonic2 on 15m lines, flat water, about 15 or 16 kts of wind. Suunto doesn't seem to show speed over distance but I had a a 30 second average over 30 mph.

Was in a narrow channel with shallow water on either side so couldnt go very far at that speed, but it was nice and flat.

I think I can go faster. I can hold the 11m in much more wind. Had a ding on the foil that I have since filled in. I'll try for longer distances at speed now.
