Wich foil kite for hydrofoiling?

Postby diogovilla » Wed Mar 28, 2018 3:30 am

Hi,

I am a 95kg hydrofoiler. I currently have a Cloud 13.5 for light winds but am considering an easy foil kite (It will be my first foil kite experience) for even lighter winds.

So far, I am considering the Pulsion UL 15m or the Hyperlink UL 12m. Any thoughts? Tks.

Area matters and there is a big difference between 12M and 15M. IMO, a 15M Flysurfer Soul, Speed, or Hyperlink would be a good start.

Hi diogovilla. I tried the cloud as a light wind kite and found it wasn't for me. I've since got myself couple of Ozone Hyperlinks 9M & 12M and I'm very pleased . The Hyperlinks are FAR easier to fly/user friendly than my previous Chrono Mk1
Cheers Paul

I cannot recommend the 15m Speed5. Loved it on a twin tip but way too heavy for lighter air foiling. Swam many times with it as on the low end of its range, where you can actually foil quite nicely it will fall out of the sky in lulls and you are stopped. Additionally, they sit back in the window too far for the faster foils. Sonic 2 15 is massively better and no harder to deal with. Can't say on the soul as it is brand new but it may be more like the speed due to AR.

Bigger wing on the foil is a whole lot more fun...

Hyperlink for freeride, R1V2 or Sonic Race for speed

Kitech Free RS is also good option
