Re: Is a Spitfire safer?

Zeeko claims the Spitifire foil is safer in crashes as it is less likely to come after you. Also, it is more tolerant of breaches so one is less likely to crash. Can anyone with real world experiences comment on this? Thanks Spitfire indeed tends not to follow after a dismount/crash. The second par...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Bille, the closest model is Nitro (the last Nitro model I owned was V4) It is a good kite, but I still prefer Edge. Price is very good right now though.

Re: Spitfire club

Do you have the Alpine wave wing? Could you compare it with the Spitfire? Tks. No I don't, so can't make accurate comment (I own XLP and GT wings). It is a hard comparison. The feel/riding style is a bit different with Spitfire. Alpine is quite typical foil as far as rider input goes. You drive thr...

Re: Spitfire club

Spit 100% since march. I don't have any desire to use other foils even though I still own alpine and spotz 2.
Mostly XLW wings since august, because of light winds but also I'm too lazy to change betweenwings

Re: Hydrofoil lift in different water temperature /salinity

Yes, it is probably sediment I have been feeling. It feels like big difference in lift. This weekend we had luck to get 2 sessions in 4c air and water. At times foil is jerking and veering around. I think I'm hitting individual strands of sea grass, small clumps of grass and small jellyfish I saw a...

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

I like 9m A15 the most. Did not do any mod other than shortened Z a little. It has all those negatives as larger sizes just (like slow depower) but they are less annoying in 9m. Light cloth could make it even better. Large bar helps

Re: New foil from Ozone

... what Gunnar said. I'll just add that yes, HL will be slower, but mainly quite different to your Enduros. It is something to get used to. I fly HL 12 with 60cm bar and strongly recommend it. It helps to have a good trim (depower) set up on the bar as well. I don't fly it with longer than 20m line...
