Re: Too much power?!

So yesterday it was about enough wind to go on a 9-10m (8-10 knots), but a friend was with a 17m FLITE on the beach and i went to try it. After 17 years of kiting i discovered a whole new world of feelings... this hidrofoil its just fantastic... So normaly on a TT, when you edge and at the same tim...

Re: Advice for flying a LEI

Consider line extensions? They give the kite a bigger window to work with, while still staying high enough. Also, if you are kitibg with a tree-lined shore and light wind, the extensions may help you reach higher to cleaner breeze. Good advice :thumb: Many, actually most here use 25-27 m lines as s...

Re: Racing stance V casual stance...

Not sure if you are only asking about the "V" and such ?

If general stance width, see these threads:

Re: 4th session foiled and learned a ton

Good to hear you are getting there :thumb: Regarding the "going downwind and not halfwind like on TTs" you talk about, dont worry, it is good when learning as you get more room for your timing. But later you start halfwind just as on any other board, and edging it also, easy when you can as just a m...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a foilkite fan

Not sure I understand f2020, what do you disagree with ??? I say the foil kites starts earlier, and perform better - isnt that what you say too, faster and more upwind ? But I assume you will agree that for freestyle and carving fun the LEIs are great, or do you prefer the slower powerful foilkites ...

Re: Light LEI kites c",)

My personal choice for 7-9 knots is the 12 m2 Zeeko Notus Air, as it can stay in the air in less than I can ride, turns extremely fast (a must for fun IMO). Peter, what line length do you usually ride Notus Air with? I recently bought Flite V4 12m and am a bit disappointed with power spike it gener...
