Re: 7, 9 and 12 for a 100kg twintip rider

I am 100kg (add 5kg for wetsuits). IMO.... If you only buy three kites - you need 17m of kite from 10 to 18 knots, then a 12m, then a 9m (25/30knots).
I personally think three is not enough for a heavier rider, but you will figure that out in time.

Re: Naish XL surf wing

I kite with the thrust surf medium wing and really like it. I have a surf large and the XL and found the xl to be way too stable. I put the standard rear wing on the xl and it improved the performance. I then cut 1 inch off of each end of the standard rear wing and the xl was way better. Still not ...

Re: Naish XL surf wing

I don’t like the XL kiting. L is better. XL too stiff turning. I could feel no advantage, only negative over L for foiling. Leave the XL for other sports, windsurfing, SUP etc. Hmm, bummer to hear that. I just got an XL but have not tried it kiting (yet). I love the L..the agility is pretty insane ...

Re: Cloud vs Reo.

I'm totally opposite I guess. Been flying Clouds for two years and stopped using all other kites. Tried the Ultra and really didn't like it. Slow and barge-like compared to Clouds. Ultras are not a wave kite, they just don't drift well enough. Once you get REALLY used to the timing of the Clouds (o...

Re: Cloud vs Reo.

I have a Reo 6 V4 and OR Flites 12,10 and 8m V5 If I compair the Reo with my OR Flites, the Reo need much more wind too perform. The gab between the Flite 8m and the Reo 6m is huge. Wish I had a 6m kite with the characteristic of the Flites. I have no idea about newer Reos, but if they are anything...

Re: Cloud vs Reo.

I want to try to do the same .i think the future for freeride hydrofoil is a very light lei. Now a normal inflatable small kite is build to work in a very wide windrange,so it needs reinforcements and a strong structure that makes it heavy. So I think we will see in the future ,for example, small k...
