Re: Advice for buying 1st Foil Kite

I really like the Flysurfer 15m Speed 5 and it is very easy to fly. There is no getting around all of the bridle lines and they are intimidating at first. Over time you will be able to get the thing in a ball on the beach and back to untangled without much effort. I would not expect any more power f...

Re: Foils that fit the Nobile Split board pattern

That Alpinefoil adapter look fantastic.

It looks like I could use that and use a Ketos foil on my Zen board.

Re: 2017 Nobile Infinity Foil or Skim Foil Reviews

I am interesting in a Ketos foil and would be interested if anyone has any experience. From what I understand, it is not necessarily the mast location that is important. Each foil can locate the foil wing a different distance forward of the mast. So it is really the plate to wing placement that real...

Re: So once and for all...Speed 5 for light wind...??

My general thought for suggesting the Speed 5 over the Sonic 2 is that diffence in performance on a small twin tip would not be worth the hassle of the Sonic 2. The 15m and 18m take some work in light winds to fill the tips by back stalling and they can be a little more nuanced in flying. The Speed ...

Re: So once and for all...Speed 5 for light wind...??

I seem to end up in a lot of places that have light wind, I am in San Diego this week and we will be lucky to get 10 knots directly on the ocean today and even less if I go into the bay. Kiting with 10 knots if easy, some might not find it much fun but others like myself with have a blast and get a ...

Re: So once and for all...Speed 5 for light wind...??

The 15m Speed 5 is nice, great kite but not much bigger than your 13m. If you want one light wind kite, just get the 21m Speed 5 and it will come with line extensions that you can try out and probably like. I fly my 21m all the time in light wind and I weigh less than 75kg. Of course a little bigger...

Re: Easiest to relaunch race foil kite

Seeing that you do not have a race kite, the Sonic2 is an amazing kite and it re-launches rather easily most of the time. Compared to the Speed5, it is a pain in the ass to launch the first time. With the Speed5, you can just shake the top of the kite, hardly pre inflate the thing at all and it will...

Re: Interested in the Ketos So Light or Easy

How about the placement of the Ketos mast in relationship to the back of the board. The Zen plate bolts are 28cm and 44.5cm from the rear where the foam rises up. Rear strap, 9cm and 24cm Front straps. 78.5cm and 90cm Not too concerned about the straps because I am strapless but the back of the boar...

Interested in the Ketos So Light or Easy

I have a Nobile Zen board and foil. I love that it is a split board and sometime just use the board as a directional. I have been using the All Around Zen foil, nice G10 foil and 86cm aluminum mast. I like the sounds of a Ketos So Light/Easy foil with a 90cm mast. I would like to use it on my Zen bo...
