Re: sonic 2 18m for light wind foiling

Am 70 kg and my light wind is a sonic II 13.....I have tried lots of bigger foils and with my weight can't do much with them - my buddy who is around 100 KG sails to the moon on his 15 mt Sonic whereas I struggle to get the timing right on it

Re: Directional with straps for small Waves / Not for lightwind, not for freestyle

Not seen any reviews but Gong have a range of short boards - with strap options - at really low prices - 450 tempted as wont get much use as London doesn't have many wave spots ... al-fsp-2x/

Re: Do foil kites sink?

as a consolation - last time I was at Tarifa at Playa Balneario in offshore wind saw a loose Lei kite drifting off into the sunset never to be seen again....taking on a bit of water has its advantages

Re: When do you start wearing boots and gloves?

I've got raynauds and boots and gloves come pretty early.. Sometimes kicks in in summer but isn't painful then... Even wearing good wetsuit and gloves.. Winter sessions have to be quite short as I quickly lose feeling in my toes and lose board control
