Dear All,
as we receive many request on the XLW SPITFIRE wings I just want to inform that they are back on stock and this time in white color with the AVS system.
I'd love to hear feedback on these. Hopefully from someone who used original XLW wings before

Re: OK to kite near Afrodite’s rock, Cyprus?

Yup, that was me. I chickened out after having a look at the gap between two outer rocks (?) and seeing corral or something there - possibly too shallow to pass thru. For me the whole thing was about going thru and around those rocks. Perhaps next time. Btw, good to meet you there.

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

I tried 15m lines on the hyperlink 9m once and found it almost impossible. Interesting. I fly HL 12 on 15m lines and do not have major issues with it. Perhaps I have to pay a little bit more attention to downloop radius. I'm sure I've lost some of the power spike but water start does not define the...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performancep

Nice "review". Good info. Perhaps what gives Soul upper edge vs HL in larger sizes could make it less desirable in smaller if freeriding in waves is your thing.

OK to kite near Afrodite’s rock, Cyprus?

Stopped by Aphrodite’s rock a short while ago and it struck me as a magic place to kitefoil around. The beach was empty. There are few rocks that might be too close to surface and need be avoided, but otherwise it looked doable. No signs to prohibiting kiting or anything. I don’t like to create prob...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

To ease learning, you need XLW wings. Standard wings are a challenge at first for even more seasoned foiler. As for whether Spitfire is better for you rather than classic foil, this is personal preference. I’ve been riding on it over a year and still like it. Owned 2 other foils before. It does take...

Re: Foil kites, removing sand from tip sewing?

There was a post about it in the past. Search thru foil kite section. Someone used soldering iron or hot nail to poke small holes in the fold. Apparently it worked well

Re: fastest free ride hydrofoil?

I was wondering why Zeeko decided to build Bullet - the fastest g10/Alu foil on the market (according to them). Now I know

Re: Any tips on building a foilboard...

There are few ways you can go: - Buy used foilboard that fits your foil or is easy to mod to fit. - Modify old surf or wakesurf or skim board - I modded one myself using Slingshot Space Pickle. It is a good size board even for a beginner http://snag.gy/O5CQqN.jpg http://snag.gy/TybFiz.jpg - build yo...
