I can use the 9m HL below 10 knots if needed in lulls.
No initial drift launch tried yet, but water relaunch in low winds quite a few times, even after minutes in the water while swimming.early bird2 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 27, 2017 5:07 amFrank , did you experiment with drift launch , if yes , how did you rig your kite and bar ? Also , any light air relaunches in deep water so far ?
I have a 12 in hand but no downwind room for safety while practicing drift launch . I think many things could go wrong so I will wait for the water level to drop .

The canopy looks similar to the winter's foils , not very different from the V2 . I never had Flysurfers so can't compare . I'm going to use it 70 percent snow and 30 percent water . Unless I become very confident with drift launch .
Anyway , this is my goal for the next couples days to experiment differents ways to drift launch , beginning in lights winds .I'll be back with the results .
