Hi Peter, thanks for the advice.
How much do you weigh for kite foiling on the 1200cm front wing? I’m 82 kg.
What wind conditions do you go out in Witt the 1200? Super light wind? Is the foil draggy?
Hi - I weigh 78 kg.
Use the 1200 in 4 to 6 m/s quite often.
And an 800 wavewing when 6 or more, but sometimes also the 800 in less wind, depends on what I feel like.
If bigger waves and a lot of wind, the 1200 seems to work better than the smaller ones quite often though.
Not only for super light wind nope, but great to ride in 14 knots with a 5 m2 kite, kite turns fast, fast to rig, and you can SURF.
Of course any 1200 is draggy, but you dont feel it much in waves.
The most interesting thing is, if it is low AR (my Ketos is 3.6 in AR so turns blistering fast) you can turn and carve extremely narrow because they just "soar" with lower speed, so they feel just as fast (turning) or faster, than smaller wings - amazing
