I don't want to publicise my spots, they are busy enough.

Re: Single strut kite turning

I have been using single strut kites on foils for awhile, love em, but the last two days I have tried my 9 Ultra on my surfboard. I noticed turns seem slower than a standard 3 strut wave kite, my timing during downloops was off with transitions and on the wave. Watching the kite when redirecting ha...

Re: Airush wave 7m blew out!

I think I must've been lucky. My first Wave was in 2012, a 9m, that I loved. I lived on that kite. Not once had I experienced anything you guys are talking about. MInd you I never had out in 40+. I weigh 95kgs. I have a 2018 10m and find it is a great kite. The 2015 7m I have is a dream in high wind...

Re: 75 cms mast

A 70 will suit you well there. Chest high water is needed for 80cm+ masts. Anything less and you'll be catching the wing during your learning. A 60 will be good for starting and probably suit for your first few months, then size up to the 70 I have friends who have a place out there and have visited...

Sardinia, end of April, into May

Hey

Considering a visit to sardinia for two weeks.
Two of us, one a TT'r I mostly ride surfboard, learning to foil. I do TT when I have to.

Worth a visit for the above skills?

I'm assuming it's not really a surfboard/wave spot island, would take my TT and my foil.

Re: Why Peru is not a more popular kite destination?

Would love to go, but flight costs and basically two days to get there (two days to get back) take its toll.

Would really love to get on that wave tho' being goofy #heaven ;)

Re: Ultra v2 what size after 12m and 9m for wave/foil?

No, not tried a 9m. The 10 is fast enough, Not as fast as a Wave, but you don't want it to be. It works well with a SB, but is better matched with a foilboard. If you're going to be mostly SB, with a bit of foiling and a little TT, then get the Wave. If you're going to mostly foil, with a lot of SB ...

Re: Ultra v2 what size after 12m and 9m for wave/foil?

Completely agree with Seabizzle. The Ultra is good on a SB, but not as good as the Wave. The Wave is good with a foil board, but, not as good as the Ultra. When the wind is light, you want the Ultra. It generates so much power via apparent wind, it will blow your mind. And upwind capability is eye o...

Re: Kite for waveriding

Yeah, I had a 2014 12m and I didn't gel with it either. I live on my 10m, but I use different boards for different wind/waves etc. I weigh 95kg+ and can use that from 17/18kts with my 5'3" Evo SB. Obviously more wind the better it gets. If you're finding the 7 works from 16kts, then a 10 should fill...
