Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

Comments from a foil kite and hydrofoil novice! I have the Pansh Aurora II in 15m and 10m - most experience on 15m - maybe 5-6 times with only 3 on water with TT. Don't be surprised by the amount of "backstall" required in the foil kite. I got the Pansh bar with 25m lines and in the 60 cm size, got ...

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. Spent almost an hour in a pool with board and foil. Better understanding of "sweet spot" for balancing board and bringing it up. Hope it transfers to use with kite. I've definitely got stiffer joints with age!!!

Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

Have a LF Happy foil and happy pill board.
Having too much problem getting board on edge to waterstart.
Wearing me out! Just too weak and/or old!!
Appreciate any suggestions as to which foil setups are basically "neutral buoyant" so that foil more or less sits on water when starting.

Thanks.

Re: Removing struts to make big old kite lighter?

Just removed 2 struts from Switch Nitro4 16m. Kited one session with struts 2 and 4 deflated and it seemed ok. Had friend remove struts 2 and 4 and yesterday I used it for about 2 hours total using a 145 cm TT. Sensor showed I started at 6-10 mph. I was able to hold my line but not get upwind (wind ...

Re: Pansh tuning Aurora 2 12m2 ideas?

"You need to learn to hold the bar in on certain situations or bad things will happen."

Which "certain situations"?

Still trying to learn my Aurora II 15m!

Thanks

Re: Pansh Aeolus

My review of Aurora 2 in 15m. I bought the Aurora II in 15m since my last posting. Got it because of price, thought it could be lower wind kite, and because wind has been too pitiful to fly the 10m. Finally had opportunity to go out in about 10-16mph. Ocean but inside breakwater so not much wave act...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list and 15m review

Finally had opportunity to go out in about 10-16mph. Ocean but inside breakwater so not much wave action. Almost straight on shore ...

Re: Pansh shipping time to the states

Bought 2 Pansh now. First after 4-5 days my account order showed a tracking number and arrived in a total of 13-14 days. Second never showed tracking number or even that it was shipped but arrived in about same time. They just do not respond to emails - unless, as with a friend, they want to get an ...
