thanks and yes, have always one eye at ketos. Going to buy an KF box adapter from them. Think they have very nice stuff. But on the end, try to keep things compatible which is Levitaz system actually.
Really nearly stopped using normal foil during last month.
Last benefits I see from normal foils:
- Riding long distance > 60 km and with sometimes over 40 km/h
- you can sit relaxed on a normal foil (actually I think impossible on a mono)
- ... maybe in very difficult conditions like waves? But not sure
Today I tried my new "Bionic" full race foil which I liked much more for having low drag over my old free race "Aspect" Foil.
But on the end when going from the mono to the full race foil and back to the mono it felts like:
Oh damm it feels so draggy (the full race
) and jammed, ... and then: oh great to be back on the mono, feels so much faster (even if it is not faster in reality) agil an much more fun to ride.
A friend has finished his first version of his own Element monofoil with slightly shorter strut for travel. Already the second day he set a new speed record with something in between 37 km/h and 39 km/h (Peak).
Never expected that it is possible to be so fast on a mono. Think mean ingredients have been much talent and a heavy board with lots of swing weight.
Just enjoying the freedom an just 6,0 kg, but still bomb proofed mono foiling gives you.
And this is what happens when you have no remote for the camera and your trying to handle the kite down 3 m during foil flight.
Monofoils produce great spectacular wipe outs, as they enjoy doing quick back flips themself
