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

Hi Tony, once the kite is on land, sitting on your back quietly enough (which usually means that it is on the ground in the middle of the wind window, fully downwind) , you get detach from the CL and let the bar on the sand.

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

I set it up for downwind launch and used my 55cm LF Mission bar with 20m lines. Maybe 60cm will be more appropriate. With 50cm is definetely too short according to Stef Goffinet who also ordered one.

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

Speed4 is a kite of quite high performance, simple low aspect kite like Wave is not. However for some uses low performance kite can be better because it is easier/more pleasant to use. AR and airfoil shape are the most important things to kite behavior. It is interesting to see hfs giving an opport...

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

@Tomas: Marc answered your request (my translation from French): The Neo and the wave have nothing in commun except that they both are kites. I am not going to comment each kite but how to associate them with a foil. This will be more helpful. The Neo is a kite that does it all, easy but efficient, ...

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

I'm a beginner foiler riding up on the foil both directions, s curves and working on transitions. When not foiling I'm on a surfboard. From the videos it seem...
