Re: Small Kites who is making them?

I wonder how that 3m would be in 20+ knots... in the video it is only 13 knots and he seems powered well enough. is it your experience that foil kites have that much more range then LEI? I am not certain that foils have larger wind range than LEI. At least it us not a general rule . IMO wide wind r...

Re: Small Kites who is making them?

One friend of mine , very skilled foiler, has now sold all his LEI to switch to its loved CA waves : he now has all of hem 6.5 +4.5 + 3. He said easier to launch and land than a LEI , incredible stability useful in waves and a bit less "explosive" (i do not likevthis on my 4m, too quick in turns) I ...

Re: Hydrofoiling France between Montpellier and Nice, best place?

Hi, Lake I do not think. From nice toward toulon you can find : - St Laurent du var (not official kite spot, Technical and dirty water but almost fresh due to the river). Not easy for beginners due to rocks proximity and river current - Cannes (official spot) , nice water but extremely narrow beach ...

Re: Small Kites who is making them?

I bought a 4m Slinghot Rallye some years ago ; great but in 25-30 knots with my Hydrofoil, it was even too powerful in waves with my 60 kg ... Now After good reviews of the new ram air Conceptair Wave 4.5m, I would choose this one if I had the money ... The highest high end I know is the Genetrix hy...

Re: New to Foils, bought a Pansh A15 12m

Try to shorten a bit the length of SPL C line (which goes from A to Z and through the C pulley) , Like -10 cm as a starter). Before doing it very properly , you can try first by making a local knot on this line to avoid disconnecting all the speed system. You should gain in stability (against a bit ...

Re: is super light wind the promised land?!

Having fun or not in less than 8-10 knots is a matter of personal taste, not sure that one statement is superior to the other (as it depends on what you like with kitesurfing), but i am sure you will never convince someone loving riding on calm sea that he should not like that :nono: . Personally : ...

Re: is super light wind the promised land?!

yes you are right, this is a major point ... and also the big power and light weight of this kite model (15m2)
