Eddy Lansink is really good on foil in high wind for Big air and can throw great kiteloop

Then he should clearly enter the Red Bull King of Air to see how he does side by side with LEIs :D

Yeah..on 2 foils ..a couple years ago ( feels longer)...i can just imagine what would happen looping......

...... a 21SP3 or 19SP2....in 35MPH :-? :lol:

.....still it would be interesting to see small Foil vs small Lei side by side boosting at the Red Bull.....


.....now it's all about 6PSI for me......... :pump: :pump: :pump: :pump: :pump: :pump: :surf:

......no more 1PSI :wink:

yes it will be interesting. I'm keen to see how this new speed 4 flys. lets face it speed 3 is at least 4 years old now. comparing a 2009 technology with 2013 is pretty unfair.

My gut tells me the lei's will go higher and the foils will glide longer. that seems to be the case from my personal experience. But i admit i have never sent a small 8m foil in nuking wind on the water.

I've jumped 8m open cell foils on the land. but when i'm on the land i'm not going for ultimate height. its allways a more controlled jump. But i love foils on land because of the glidey the provide. foils definately give a softer landing in a wider range of conditions compared to an lei.

Gunnar whats the top end of the 8m speed 4? 35 knots?
