Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

ya kinda agree on the 27 m lines getting overpowered quickly.........it does give some nice extra float when redirecting on lightwind boosting( which makes a 15 -20 foot boost more fun.) ......but other than that its really only if you have a 15m or less and want to squeeze maybe another 1/2 knot ou...

Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

yes extensions do help.........generally you dont need more than 27m lines, the powerstroke alone helps even if there are no gradients higher. We also tried the shorter lines and they really suck the life/power out of a kite, that in combination with a racewing would be a disaster. Shorter lines are...

Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

....sometime the wind can drop quickly and it seems everyone has to get off at the same time and there appears to be no benefit to a bigger kite. However we are fortunate to have steady thermals which die out slowly, thus it becomes easy to experiment and notice that the bigger kite can still work f...

Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

we are very lucky to have multiple riders on different kites in the same conditions.........at the bottom end there comes a point where you might get on the board but just dont have the pull of the kite. With absolute certainty i can tell you that at some point with the 15m sonic2 there just isnt en...

Re: 19.6m boosting on flatwater.

when you truly jump alot.....i mean thousands upon thousands........you can really appreciate all the different types of wind, and there are many.......its not unusual to go jump only 6m and then 16m plus in the same session....if its gusty or up and down wind......you can not predict a gusty wind, ...

Re: Small vs large foil board

......its called an expression.....to illustrate a point....hammer it home (but not using a hammer or a home), sometimes on internet its to easy to misinterpret what is trying to be said or say something correctly so everyone gets it in the first place............but its all good! :cheers: :wink:

Re: 19.6m boosting on flatwater.

the pros jump big with a big assist from........wind. Woo has made many people learn how to boost efficiently and properly without kickers or neccesarily super strong wind. Its amazing if you been following woo, the improvement all regular posters have made over the last 2 to 3 years of posting........

Re: Small vs large foil board

yes horst that kite size and range sounds bout right, have not been able to test 3-6 kts......but Alpine foil claims to do it with the 11m r1v2 with extensions.....straight into the wind! :wink: the ulw being such high aspect sets it apart from other big wings......and its actually 952 square cm.

Re: Small vs large foil board

yes ,i agree with dave ...i think the next evolution will be big wings, that make board size almost irrelevant........and kite size. We have been experimenting with the alpine ulw.....and it flys with any kite in any wind (you can seriously downsize your kite, or stay same size and be seriously jack...
