A15 vs Aurora2 for kite foilboarding?

Postby kriskris » Sun Aug 20, 2017 3:12 pm

I started using foilboard recently and now I can see the advantages of foil kites with light wind conditions. I read good reviews about both kites. I would like to use kite in a light wind conditions around +/- 10 mph and up. I am 160 lbs/ 72kg so I am thinking about getting 12m Aurora2 or A15. I do not care about racing or upwind abilities. I just want stable kite that will not stall easily and get me going. BTW i have been using 21m Silver Arrow with twin tips and surfboard in light wind so I have some experience with foil kites. Any words of advice would be appreciated. Kris

Aurora2 is a good kite. I've had my prototype over a year and using it on the tt and surfboard. Still going strong.
Faster than the a15. Marginaly higher aspect. So should give a little more low end and upwind angles

A15 is very stable.
I am selling mine (in 12m) since I prefer strutless LEI over foilkites.
Send me a PM when interested

Thats 8,6 knots.
No need for ultralight version there.
Aurora2 is faster and more efficient, A15 obviously a bit easier.

I'd go for 12m Aurora2 standard and a big foil wing.
If you want to cover absolute lowend, 15m ultralight.

I, 90kg with Zeeko Carver use the 19m - but I like my kites big and with static grunt and some pull.

By now I guess a 15m would do for me too from 7-8 knots, so 19m only helps at 5-6 knots (still hard for me).
