Re: Nash Trip as budget friendly lightwind option..

Im very very sure the 10 trip has more power in lightwind than an 9 or even 10 m bandit. I owned 8 + 12 myself, both perfect foilboard kites, but a pain in the ass wenn being overpowerd, really not funny. When not overpowered also fun on a wavebord in waves. Don't expect to be the trip to be very si...

Re: sitting on the board to relaunch

my board is a "0" volume 148x48x2 cm Arriba Arriba foilboard. even on this board I sit to relaunch if the wind is below 12 knots or so. it lifts me just some centimeters but the situation gets much more balanced than when just swimming without board. and, when I sit on the board, I don't loose it. i...
