Ultra light foiling 1-5 knots

Postby GlennvanRooij » Sun Sep 30, 2018 11:24 am

Hi all,

I was wondering how low i could go on a Hydrofoil. Using the Peter lynn Aero 14 UL i swas able to get foiling in very low wind. It was a lot of fun and i think it is amazing how low-wind you can go on a foil kite.

Nice video. It is rare to share "real light wind sessions" throug a non marketing - 10 seconds " video. PL Aero is a very good light wind kite.

Thanks, for safety reasons is is important to know when your kite is filled with water there is now way you be able to swim more than 200 meter. If you are fast enough an roll up the kite before water is getting the kite you can swim very easy.

When you were swimming back to the beach, did you have the whole kite rolled up, partially rolled or just the wing tips together?

Just the wing tips, to much air in the kite to roll it completly up. Get the wingtips and put them on the board, the rest of the kite will follow.
