Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

I have now tested the Wave 6.5 on the snow (in Austria). To say it in a few words: this is a great kite with good potential for touring/snowkiting, very good depower, very agile and predictable + kiteloops are peferct to go up the slope (the kite does not slow down when gping up in the loop). What I...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

Hey guys ... stop using the kite for hydrofoiling ... it was meant for wave riding strapless!!! :-) 8-) This is also why it does not have a powerful lift for jumping as it was not the point ... it is all about drifting, drifting and drifting, being maneuverable while drifting, staying up there in th...

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

I am deeply thinking to buy a A15 in 9m2 to be used mainly in snowkite (and depending on result maybe very ponctually on HF ). Could you sum up if modifications of the bridles are required or just for optimization (I have very few time to tune this year), and has one of you tested aurora vs a15 bac...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

A new video of the smart 4.5 on hydrofoil with a talented rider: https://vimeo.com/242228273 His comment: Je me régale vraiment avec cette aile, le drift est juste magique ! I have been out in good waves with the Wave 4.5 and my low-end with a light wind surfboard seems to be around 23-25 knots (I a...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

Very nice to read all these comments! Now I need to find the low end of this kite. I had a very good session 10 days ago in 2/3m waves. Wind was 23-25 knots with lulls at 20 and gusts at 29/30 knots. I was a little under power with my stretch quad 5'11 (was going upwind but I had to think about goin...

Re: Low AR foil kite

HI Bill!

I remember that you talked about a depowerable foil when we did the interview on FZ:

Interview express Bill Hansen, Switchkites designer

Are you about to release one at Switchkites? That would be very interesting.

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

Interesting discussion! This said the Concept Air Wave is a performance kite ... for wave riding. Those of you who used old mid ratio foils and even LEIs may remember that people used to sell us beginner / intermediate foil kites as good wave kites. I never liked this approach, in particular with ac...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3

Nice to hear that there are new people trying these kites! Happy for Benoît in particular because he always told me that these kites were often one of a kind because I was the only kite surfer asking him to build that sort of kitez. It took us 5 years of exchanges and tests to get there thanks to th...
