In native English fast implies "fast turning".
In other languages (ours t.ex), fast means fast (forward) flying.

I have provided multiple definitions clearly stating that your statement is incorrect!
Here is another just for fun,
https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries. ... t_1?q=fast
In common English use the word fast simply relates to speed, as you note in other languages, and not as you claim implies turning rate.
To describe this one would say "turning speed".
So again I ask, where did you get the mistaken idea of the difference in definition between English and other languages concerning the word "fast"?

You can both open a thread about that in the "grammar police" forums :)

Fast or nimble. Pretty simple.

I'm native English speaking.

My simple thread suddenly became a language battle involving some of the very frequent posters. 😎
I'd like to hear if someone has anything more to add to the original subject 🤗

Sorry with short explanation.
In this world now "alternate facts" and all out lies are becoming the norm and go unchallenged.
This taking place a lot now in the English speaking world making clear meanings, definitions needed!
And in this specific case from someone who`s mother tongue is not even English!
All apologies to you the O P!
Over and out :bye:

Anyone know or have an idea when 2019 models will be on the market? Stormkites in particular but also other brands.

There is a local dealer here for Storm kites and him and at least one other foiler are using them in really light winds. They are out on 12 and 15 when another guy is struggling on his f-one 13 m foil, and I'm struggling with my 9M Hyperlink UL. So obviously they are pretty good kites. Reasonable price too.

Comparing with a 9 and a 13 its not really the best comparison, but which model are they flying ?

Not sure, both the strutless and the one strut. I'm out on the hyperlink 9 in 10 knots no problem, they are too. Seen them out in 8 knots on the 15 storm.
