Re: High wind foiling

I use my 4.5 Concept Air Wave in 18 to 24 knots. That is the sweet spot for me at 80 kg.

Re: High wind foiling

I foil up until 35 knots. In 25 to 35 knots I use a Concept Air 3 metre Wave. Up until the low thirties I don't even have to depower it much. I usually pair it with a Slingshot Infinity 76 foil. In those winds I prefer to use a larger foil board. Quite often to keep things under control I'll drop of...

Re: Concept Air Firefly 8 Meter

I used the 8 meter again yesterday. Light wind to start. Drift launched in waist deep water no problem and up on foil easily. A guy with a 14.5 metre Ocean Rodeo Flight could not get his kite into the air drift launching. It would not even lift a tip up. I do think my 9 and 12 Pulsions would start a...

Re: Slingshot WF1 + 76cm Infinity for Kite Foiling

I have both the space skate and the infinity 76. I still ride both of them. If I could only have one I would stay with the infinity 76. It is a little bit faster. I find it starts a bit earlier, it's easier to pump. It is more stable. I find the space skate is much more turny. So I pick which one I ...

Re: Slingshot WF1 + 76cm Infinity for Kite Foiling

I have kited on a similar setup. The only difference was I was on the wf2. I believe they're the same board. Mine's just covered with foam all over the top and sides. It worked just fine for me. The board does not have a lot of nose rocker so if you breach you're probably going to fall. I had no pro...

Re: Concept Air Firefly 8 Meter

It stays up in the air quite well in the lulls. I'm not sure because it's hard to compare but I think the peak is a little better at that. A plus is the first day I tried to fly it on the water there wasn't enough wind. I got it into the air and then the wind died and it sat on the water for about 1...

Concept Air Firefly 8 Meter

Yesterday I had my first try of the Firefly 8. The wind was 8 to 12 knots at the local wind meter. I weigh 80 kg. and was on a floaty board and the Slingshot Infinity 76 foil. I was in a large fresh water lake with a long distance that the wind was coming across the lake. So the wind was pretty clea...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I used the 8 metre today and the local wind meter said 8 to 10 knots. I also have the 11 and it is significantly more powerful. I use a 1500 cm. surf foil. I weigh about 175 lbs. The power Spike when diving the kite is significantly less than my closed-cell foil kites. But I find the Peak 4 generall...

Concept Air Firefly 6, 4 and Wave 4.5 comparison

Today I had a chance to fly the firefly 6 and 4 and the wave 4.5 in winds ranging from 16 to 22 knots. I started out on the 6 metre because there appeared to be significant lulls. It was misleading as the wind was much stronger than it appeared. I recently had Ben put the version two additions to th...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I have the flysurfer peak 4 in 8 and 11 metres. I bought them for use on snow. Yesterday at my local spot the wind was very light. Too light to launch my 9-meter pulsion from the water. So I thought I would try the 8. The kite launched easily from the beach. I had to walk out couple hundred metres t...
