Re: Kite choice for foil noob

C kites won't make it easy though...Worth learning on your existing kites just be conscious that you're taking a smallish size until you get the hang of it.

Re: choice - (MHL) Lift NF2 vs. (LP) Silencer NF2 vs. Ghost Whisper

Interesting. They're all at or under 3kg so I wouldn't make up my mind based on weight. Ghost Whisperer is basically a freerace foil, the other two are more freeride. Lift are very well made, seen a few in person and they're stout, but I've never ridden any of the ones you mention.

Re: cutting the mast

I cannot for the life of me imagine why anyone would want to learn on a short strut. When you're learning is when your ride height control is the worst and you need all the strut in the water you can get! I'd just learn how to ride the thing and not blame your gear. I learned on a full-length foil a...

Re: so i tried kitesurfing, seems dangerous.

One time I drove an open-wheel formula car for a few hours at a track. I wasn't very good at it, and it seemed really dangerous at the time. The next day I joined an internet forum for open-wheel enthusiasts and I posted a thread about how I thought it was dangerous and that I wasn't sure I was goin...

Re: Best closed cell foil for a beginner?

I'm a believer in the new Flysurfer Sonic2's...having flown the 15m, I think it's so easy to fly you could pretty much teach a first-time lesson with it. The Speed5 is a slight bit lower performance in terms of top speed and upwind ability, but even easier to use and handle. From what I've heard, sa...

Re: its not going to happen for me

I got stuck with 2 carafino foil boards... I bought the slingshot system So, I quit. . Maybe bad karma for your support for the psycho thief Manual Carabelo, carfina here during the scam! :lol: To bad, the slingshot is one of the few US set ups that flies just fine! :bye: Quitter!
