Re: 6m Soul as step down from 10m?

6 & 10 = close to perfect. Why I plan on getting the new Sonic in a 11m. Would be a fantastic travel quiver 6/11. Well.. the Soul12 makes it perfect for me and my son.. 8) Great set, 6, 10 & 12 for foiling (72kg) If I would only foil and must take 2 it will be 6 & 10. 6 is nice on a surfboard too!

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

@ solarset; landing is defined as something you are doing, controling.. this is crashing and in the meantime a kite is pulling on a leash..
Like I wrote in the other topic this is IMO equipment failure, think about it.

Re: easily reset chickenloops

@ Ozone & Len10. quote "The release didn't open by itself, the outside of my hand pressed hard against the release when the kite powered up and pushed it open. Dang.. " Accidental release? no way.. this will happen again. Good to see Len10's support to Ozone but when you ride like that this should n...

Re: Which kite is the easiest to re-launch at low winds?

Interesting waterposition on the hydrofoil / board.. 8-0

Re: Are fast foil wings dead outside of racing?

Zen freeride is ok.. probably the best wing they have. The race wing is pretty sketchy.. you would expect it to become more stable with speed.. but it does not. Both sing like crazy (maybe its the mast?).. And you can't jump on either - you will break inserts and sink the alu-mast like I did.. Ok t...

Re: Are fast foil wings dead outside of racing?

I go to a few races a year, but usually riding around on race gear on my own. Even if I gave up racing, Id stick with the fast foil. The slow wings feel super draggy in comparison. I rode a cabrinha double agent once for a few minutes and no joke had to stop three times to check there was nothing s...

Re: FS Soul 15m or 18m for very lightwind foiling

Got a Soul 12m, on stock lines and on -3m i can get going at 6 kts.. When the 12m flies you can go foiling, I'm glad I didn't take the 15m..
Weight; 70 - 72 kg, prob 77kg with wetsuit and harness.

Re: Nobile Infinity Split board: foam cover comes off partially

it would be great to hear from Nobile if there addressed issue for this board in 2019 model. After my trip to cape verde with NHP split I was looking forward to add wave/foil split board as packing everything to Nobile check in in luggage it very convenient but due to the above I'm putting this dec...
