Pansh Aurora2 19m with Zeeko Carver

Postby Macisback » Mon Jul 24, 2017 8:23 pm

I had my first ride with this setup (90kg) today in 8 Knots.

Absolutely love the Pansh!

However, i guess I need a 2to1 bar modification as it is too slow for jibes? Just guessing - im working on my first jibes with 9,11 and 12m Kites, today i didnt try to jibe this insane monster (static pull has gruuuunt).

But now I clearly see why low wind foiling has a huge fan base.

Was the only one on the water :-)

The Pansh flies well out of the bag. North 5liner bar, had to add 2,3m on the fifth line (2m made it a powered 5th line with just a bit too much tention (5-10cm?).

Nice. Good to hear you like your new setup, Macisback.

I tried to speed up my Aurora II 15m with a 2:1 bar. Honestly, I can't say it's made a huge difference in turning speed. I want a few more sessions in different conditions before the final verdict, but so far I'm not sold on the 2:1 modification. I had high hopes based on others' reports, but I may ultimately go back to a standard ratio (long) bar. Both the 15m and the 19m are just big, slow kites. But still fun. :thumb:

Cool. I was out yesterday with the carver wing, it really works well for its size.
Expecting 10 knots I rigged 12m cloud, then the wind dropped to 8 with lulls below that, making keeping the kite up tricky. I was amazed I could get going.
Makes me wonder about the new XXL size wings.
Don't think I'd need a 19m foil kite though - maybe a 12 would do it, but for now I stick to inflatables.

I converted to 2:1 for my A15 18m. Turning speed is still slow - but depower is remarkable. For this reason alone would not go back.

+1 on the Carver wing efficiency. At 80kg I can ride consistently with a PL Charger 15, which is not really known for its low end / light wind capabilities.
The Carver does allow you to start sooner and also can go really slow without dropping you down, which makes it very forgiving in many situations.
A good buy from day 1.

My 15m aurora2 has no 5th line. Flies great on a 4 line bar.

But for some reason I prefer the blue freeride wing?
Feels more like flying?
Carver is more smooth and great for lightwind.
Not that good for jumping maybe.

But I only ride a 60cm mast so far, due to shallow water.

So which Bridle settings could make the Aurora2 turn faster?
