Weird, those links no longer work and their site no longer lists that particular foil. But yes, that's the place. Perhaps there was too much interest or someone complained about its sale?BWD wrote: ↑Wed Aug 23, 2017 2:45 pm@ norcom your links seem to be truncating so they fail.
perhaps the kiteforum software can't handle the length.
But I think I see what you ordered on the page at
Have not messaged them to check, but they list minimum orders of 10 pieces.
BTW yesterday I rode my zeeko carver and had the fun taste of breaching the foil without crashing for a fairly extended period, maybe 10 seconds or so, due to being powered with the kite very high.
Normally with this foil i can tolerate a good amount of "burps and slurps" as wingtips breach momentarily, but not the full wing.
This really showed what large wing size is about -reduced wing loading in terms of PSI. With the kite taking a lot of my weight, the surface loading on the wing was light enough for the wing to support me as if it were a small planing board. It was interesting.
Definitely smaller kite, these massive wings have so much slow speed lift it's silly. The one thing I found having zero issues with is riding down wind on this foil. I'm not that good at foiling but had absolutely no issues with riding down wind on a small wave and carving back and doing flying transitions. I have to keep speed on the faster foil going down wind so it doesn't stall. And I can't carve/ride the waves on the other foil at all. So I gained 100% maneuverability on the SUP foil but that's lack of skill mostly.pcatran wrote: ↑Wed Aug 23, 2017 2:55 pmDear All,
thanks for the insights, Ive read all with great interest.
If the large wings are slower, it means that you need a smaller kite?
How much slower in terms of % ? enough to be slower than the wave? (Ive seen the videos... but it is nice to have your opinion)
Also, does it means that on downwind should be easier, as you can lfy with less power?
Finally, how much more carving/ manuverability do you gain?
Therefore: is it worth to buy a surf-foil to kite-foil on the waves?
