Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

Rolling the kite up was also tougher than I thought. There is a velcro butt deflate closure on the middle of the trailing edge but maybe I needed to pull something out to keep the velcro from closing back up? Need to look at this again. Had trouble getting air out to properly deflate so I could pac...

This might be a dumb question but can you use a carabiner to self land the Soul? The backstall method usually ends up in a twisted mess for me.
Maybe you pull backlines too hard...
How you want to use the carabiner?

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Since we're talking about marginal wind kites, how would a large single skin kite function for hydrofoiling? Obviously if dropped in the water that is game over, but that's not unusual anyway in light winds. If it works at 5kts for snowkiting, how much more would be needed for hydrofoiling? https:/...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Never tried those kites, not sure if we can find them in europe, but looking at the design i expect the windrange to be quite small no? What would be in upper end of a 18m ? I have a 18m Pulsion light in germany! 2 days ago I was out with my 134x40 Radical5 from Flysurfer and 80kg. The wind was abo...
