Re: Club 50

My personnal objective is 40kts ! I'm hoping foil kites will help me go faster, my current best speeds are on inflatables. What wind speed do you get your top speeds in? 15-20 it winds seem to be my best. After that it's too choppy at my spots. 15-25 kts but it's offshore so it's flaaaaaaaat ! :P T...

Re: Best way not to injure yourself : go strapless !
