Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

I am not totally clear on what Stef was proposing. I do not have the 8.5 but I have the 4.5. I find it does not want to stay down once I land it. I also take it to the side of the wind window and back stall it with the rear lines. If it is not too powered up I just wind the back lines on the bar a f...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

Obviously when I dive the kite through the power zone the power will increase but what I found is if I sheet out as it's going through the power even though the power has gone up it does not go up much. Where as my Flysurfer Speed 4 10 if I dive it through the power Zone even if I sheet out the powe...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

Not once did the kite pull me off of the strapless board. Even when I dove it hard as gust hit (and it was very gusty) I was never pulled off. This is all on the first usage in trying conditions. No significant surging in the gusts, just more power which I could easily dump by sheeting out. I drift ...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

I just recently got a 3 meter Concept Air Wave. I got to use it for the first time in just above 20 knots gusting to just above 30 knots (this was measured on a sensor about a couple kilometers upwind of me) . I was using the Slingshot H4 wing on a strapless board. I weight 178 pounds. At close to 2...

Re: Double Agent vs Alien Air/H4 to start & progress with?

I do not have the alien air but I have the H4 on a simulator. I also have the wakefoil board that I kite with the WF2. The simulator has much more volume and as a result I can ride in less wind with it. Once up on the board I can stay up longer so that I can dive the kite a second time and get up on...

Re: Confusion on Slingshot's 2019 line

Sorry sendit, I have already thrown it out. Otherwise I would have shipped it to you so you could use one kite size smaller.

Re: Confusion on Slingshot's 2019 line

Grigorib thanks for questioning the weight that I came up with. I did mention that the scale was not wildly accurate but I had no idea how much it was out. I weighed it again this morning on three different scales. the original one still came up with the same weight but the other two came up with a ...

Re: Confusion on Slingshot's 2019 line

I did not have time now to disassemble the foil wing but I did a quick weigh of the 76 wing, small stabilizer and short fuselage and it was about 3.5 pounds. It was not a very accurate scale but should give you an idea of the weight. If you want the weight of just the wing weigh your fuselage and st...

Re: SS’s New Infinity Wings

I cannot comment on whether area generally is good stat to go by but my h4 wing and the infinity 76 have close to the same area but the 76 is quite a bit wider and the 76 has much more lift and is far less turny. So maybe you have to take all the individual stats together to determine the wings perf...

Re: SS’s New Infinity Wings

I managed to get out on the infinity 76 today on the simulator board with a 60 cm. mast. It is shallow out a long way where I was kiting. The wind meter directly upwind from me said 12 knots gusting to 16. The lulls were definitely less than that. It was extremely gusty. I weigh 180 lb and to start ...
