Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

A lot of good comments from fogmeister and davesails7 ; at some point with the 15m sonic2 there just isnt enough pull .......and the fun is gone........while guys on 18m sonic2 and 19m ozone r1 v2 are still flying with speed!. Then there comes a point where you cant get up on the 15 but still can on...

Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

I think lower wind than the peak is doable : i did this video with a very light double skin that hangs in the air even better than peak (already posted on the Pulsion topic, sorry) : https://youtu.be/cwO5Lho2Xro This is not the lightest I did but the best with a cam. To me the better glide of a doub...

Re: snow kiting - which is better? skies or board?

I would just add that in very light wind conditions, skis allow you to better tension the lines in a lulls to keep the kite in the air ( by using the kind of "roller blade dance" , sorry I do not know the name in english). You can also avoid easier obstacles like little rocks on your way . Overall s...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Impressions

Yes indeed i use the leash and it requires finesse . Not that I fail in it, just that it is not compfortable I feel and I was just surprised that this technick HAD to be used sooner than other LEI that were however more heavy ... but ok, not a big problem vompared to the good feeling of the flite. A...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Impressions

exactly that is a good point ; that is a good option, just need to remember or see which front line it pulls.
Do you also feel the same need when relaunching under say 12 knots ?

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

Here is a (long) video I made last week in very few wind ( 4-6 measured on a official wind meter: windfinder) ; but I would rather say 6 (average), 5-7 with very punctual lulls of 4 knots . For impatients riders (or Pink Floyd haters :jump: ), you can go directly to : - 3:00 punctual lull of about 4...

Re: Extreme Lightwind... Amazed

I agree Pedro ! Would just add that in marginal wind i found out that a loop droping first forehead (I call Uploop) is more efficient that a downloop (I.e droping backward). I do not know if it is applicable to all kites but fr medium ratio kite you can save 0.0004 knots :roll: About flotation addin...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

ok I understand but I am affraid that you will have an overlap with your 15m strutless ( unless it is to replace it) and will not save a lot of low end (kite will stay better in the air (say 4 knots in deep water) but not significant additional power compared to your 15m stutless to waterstart ; eve...
