This is good info thanks Dwight, it gives me something to think about. I was thinking of getting into windfoiling as kitefoiling isn't a viable option at my current location in the summer due to beach access restrictions for kiters.Dwight wrote: ↑Wed Jul 19, 2017 2:35 amI'm a windsurfer turned Kiter, who got board with kiting and started windsurfing again. I also Foil windsurfed all of 2016. Now I kite foil and fell in love with kiting thanks to foils. Kite foiling is way more fun than windsurf foiling. It is also much higher performance.
So far from what I've seen, when kitefoils start to zoom along nicely on 9m LEI, windfoilers still use BIG slalom rigs. Not sure what is the threshold for them to be able to use a nimble 5.3, but it's not 10kts...borist wrote: ↑Wed Jul 19, 2017 6:22 pm(...)
On the low end side, kitefoil seemed to have upper hand by a margin. This could get closer as WS foilers get better, but at this time we can kite in winds they do not bother to come out.
I'm very curious about WS foil myself, but not enough to invest in it. Perhaps one of my WS buddies will let me borrow his to learn on .
