Re: Kite for 18+ knots

Why are you guys over powered on a 6m in 18 knots? Are you using massive wings? Are your foils set up with too much aoa on the rear wing or do you simply have poor speed control? I'm still on the 8m and loving it in 18 knots.l But to the question at hand. Keep buying smaller kites to extend the upp...

Re: down wind foiling

First point at your currently confortable downwind angle, even if thats not much downwind, then speed up, then point more downwind to kill some speed, speed up again, point more downwind,repeat. I think this is the easier way, if you want to point imediatly deep downwind you will have to carry alot...

Guys why would you prefer 550 to 558?
I prefer the 550 mainly because it works very well with the 325 and the 558 dont, the 550+325 its my "everyday" foil and ive all 2017 moses wings.

Re: Kite for 18+ knots

Hi Pedro - not sure I understand your question here ? You have loads of experience with everything, so assume you have ridden your small wavekites in this wind, or ? From 18 knots I, average weight, ride a 5 m2 LEI wavekite, sometimes a 6 if only 16-18 but then quickly too powered, even on my small...

Re: Kite for 18+ knots

Last session I used 5m lines on it for half an hour. But the wind was not really strong enough to make waterstart enjoyable. The 4 starts I had to do during that 30 minutes / 10km were a bit of a pain. So I switched to 7m lines that I have been using for two sessions before on the 5m and 7m Hyperli...

Re: Kite for 18+ knots

Keep posting some videos, you are getting quite skilled at it. Actually having trouble to get footage, mostly too far from shore to be filmed from there (and not always somebody to find to do it in current weather conditions), line mounts do not work with my setups anymore. So the only way would be...

Re: Kite for 18+ knots

Loving the 5m HL, actually at the moment got two in use the regular one and the UL. Still need to fly them back to back the same day to verify differences. Anyways, since the 5m HL I am on foil kites only. And haven't looked back yet. Quite a surprise. I have used it gusting 40+ knots. Not what I a...
