Wind range question...

What do you think the wind range of a 9m ufo is on a surf foil at 80kg? Going to take out my new kite but genuinely haven't got a scooby.

Re: North quiver advice

You will end up buying it anyway so what are you waiting for. It ll be the best condition kite out of the 3 as you will use it the ...

Re: UFO v2 6m or 7m

I've got 5 7 9 quiver. Same weight as you and I ride 1050 wing north sonar. I don't think you can go wrong with either to be honest. I use the 7m the most and can get it down to 12 knots so far. Not sure on the top end yet as only had them for 4 months. Personally the ufo is so playful compared to m...

Re: Gadgets on harness

That's great idea re handle for safety knife. Have been thinking it would be hard to find the handle in a crash as it's so soft.

Gadgets on harness

What gadgets have you added to your harness? I have just added a board leash for when having to swim back with kite and board and a strobe light for emergencies.

Re: Beginner progression

Get a balance board. Use it when brushing your teeth. I did this just for a bit of fun but it doesn't half help your balance for foiling. Balancing on a balance board is so much more difficult that when you subsequently go foiling it's easy to find that balance point and relax into it.

Re: Nash pivot compared to north reach

I have a 7 9 12 reach. Love them. 7 is brilliant. Got a pal who has the pivots and people who have them swear by them. Don't think you can go wrong with either. Not sure about the 6m shout above. Think that's too big a gap.

Re: How many sessions to replace a kite

Had my north reaches 12 9 7 for 5 years. No pinholes but had to replace the valves on two of them. Still going strong. Going to fly them into the ground. Hopefully get another 5 years out of them.

Washed after every use with clean water and stored indoors. Fly them about twice a week.
