Re: Light wind foil kite for foiling

I only learnt to foil last summer. No transitions so far. But I learnt using my fone diablo 15m, then bought a 18m and this has had me up and going on my home built foil in 6 to 8 knots of wind. On long lines it'll back loop to get me up n going no issues.

Re: Are you thinking about becoming a foiler?

Here you got the racers as one group, only foil kites except for when learning.

A beginner racer start wit...

Re: Are you thinking about becoming a foiler?
