Re: Spitfire club

I have been on the Spitfire 100% since August. I spend most of my time on the XLW wings but pull the standard wings out in flat water or when I feel like riding powered. I'm mostly riding a 4.8m Cloud D. Funny you posted this since I pulled out my Zeeko Carver setup the other day for the first time ...

Re: Balance question - before I get my drill out....

I would also recommend just using the front foot hook. No need for the back hook when learning. When up and riding pay a lot of attention to where your back foot is. When I was learning I put masking tape on the rails of my board so that I had a quick visual reference for my rear foot location. Kind...

Re: What is your HF kite quiver?

Full BRM Cloud D quiver Zeeko Spitfire with standard and XLW wings Freeriding and waves 75 kg (165 lbs) I like to foil with the smallest kite possible and pretty much ride my 4.8m about 80% of the time. If I could only have one kite for foiling I would go with the 4.8m. For me these are the sweet sp...

Re: How if fix damaged carbon wings

I have some deep scratches on my carbon wing and just sanding makes the scratched areas bigger as I'm just removing the top coat (whatever it's called) of the wing it seems. What's a good way to fix this? Would filling these areas with this six10 stuff and then sanding be a good idea? The underlyin...

Re: Kite choices for foiling in high winds ?

These conditions are right in the sweet spot for foiling on the 3.7m Boardriding Maui Cloud.

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

where can I pick the spitfire up from in the states? Also how well does it break down? I like the nobile foil system because it's easy to pack for travel, is this similar? Thanks Eugene at http://www.kitesurferstore.com can hook you up with a Spitfire in the states. He will take good care of you.

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

I got my Spitfire with both sets of wings. I'm very happy I got both. For the most part if I'm in the ocean or riding waves I'm on the XLW wings. In flat water I typically ride the standard wings.

The XLW require very little kite power but you need to be a bit powered for the standard wings.

Re: Why not more canards ?

I've been riding the Spitfire exclusively for a little over two months. I haven't found anything negative about the design. Only positives.

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

I gave the Lickity Spit (standard Spitfire rear wing + XLW front wing) a go today in flat water. Works surprisingly well!!! Better turning then the XLW wings, almost the same take off speed, but much faster. The XLW is a bit slow in flat water but the Lickity Spit was fun. My initial impression was ...
