Because of the fully disassemble option, bag, and just a great foil!

I just flew this for the first time and am not a Naish fan, but this kite just works.
Really suprised at low end pull and high end depower.
Can you say no struts! BUT....... did not test h2o relaunch?

I was lucky enough to see this board and I must say it looks strong, super well made, and when the wind gets to strong, or for waves, just take off the t bar and there you go.
I would venture to say that low end with foil mounted and 10m2 trip on 33m lines, could go down to 8 knots or so.
And with board in surf mode up to 25 knots or so for waves, and take off the straps for more directional fun as well!
I can honestly say that if I was at a point in my life where travel to find new spots, I would manage to have this set up.
What do you think? :?:

If I were ever going to go through the hassle of travel (air) with a split surfboard like that I would for sure put a second kite in the kit.

Your already dealing with a package at least the length of the mast and the width of the board. A 7m can be packed nice and tight and would open up so many more good days.

As is, I can imagine a picture perfect 25 knot wave day where your just too overpowered on that 10m to have any real fun. Not sure those no strut kites shine in the top end, and a 7m would take you up to 30 knots.

8-30+ on one board and two kites.

Hi Hawaiis,
For the size reference, could you please tell me the size of the ceramic tiles on the floor on this photo? Arround 30 x 30 cm I guess...
Thank you!
Jaros


This is my travel hydrofoil.

The floor tile is 1 foot square, so you can see how big they are.

Allready found it... I thought I saw this somewhere before...
Thank you!
