Im 75kg and i can tell you that the 15m its not too big, but 16-18 knots its too much for it on a foil, unless you run a full race setup. With 16 knots im on my 6mTomW wrote: ↑Sat Sep 02, 2017 6:10 pmI'm interested, and thinking I'll get a foil kite this spring. Looking to replace my 12m North Mono. I'll go out in 8 knots, not lower, and I'd like to be able to use it comfortable up to 16-18 knots. I'm 80 kg and 25+ sessions on foil learning transitions now.
Hyperlink 12 looks great. but many saying here that higher aspect foil is better, like the Chrono or Sonic 2.
I'd actually pay someone to let me test kites, it's completely impossible to test these kites in a way to make selection.
When it gets really light, I've found the touchdown jibe with downloop to be the best way to keep moving through the transitions. I can foiling tack and jibe with consistency when the conditions are good, but they're both tough when it's super light.Pedro Marcos wrote: ↑Fri Sep 01, 2017 8:43 pmThe kite is incredible, ofc i didnt dropped in the water, but its so easy, no drama, very user friendly. Now i want to try it in really marginal winds, 4-5 knots, to see how it goes, my guess is that jibes will be a nightmare and only tacks will work for me.
Agreed. I always downloop my 13m Chrono in light winds when I jibe. I use 20m lines and have no problems as long as I start with my kite high.
