Re: Hybrid wave and foil board

Thanks Scott. I didn't notice any significant differences beetween the North Hybrid and a comparable compact shape kite surfboard (I'm the kiteboard tester for the website www.standuppaddling.it). It is fast even when the kite lines are slacked and It can turn on a dime. Very efficient upwind in mar...

Re: Hybrid wave and foil board

Hi. Last year in Maui I had a lot of sessions with my North Hybrid 5'1 in the normal surf set up and as a foil board (with a Nobile foil). No problem at all, obviously is not comparable to a smaller dedicated foil board but I went out in the lighter days simply mounting the foil to It :D . In the vi...

Re: Duotone Neo Maui sessions....guest star a tiger shark

Hi. As I said the Neo turns very well even when the lines are slacked. The bar feedback is good, while I was riding small to medium waves I've never experienced any back stall even under powered. Sometimes with the 12 I had to loop the kite during the bottom turn, but this happend only in marginal c...

Thanks. Maui can't disappointed you even when It is windless, there are a lot of interesting things to do :thumb: . Nevertheless I hope you can find perfect conditions. Have fun and ride safe.

Duotone Neo Maui sessions....guest star a tiger shark

The new Duotone Neo is a dedicated wave kite. The drifting capabilities are excellents and the steering is very responsive even when the lines are slacked. I’ve found this kite also good for jumping expecially in overpowered conditions. The new click bar is clean and efficient, after a lot of sessio...

Re: Light wind foil kite for foiling

Imho, Flysurfer Soul 12 is one of the best ULW kite for foiling that I've ever tried. It is stable, easy to relaunch and quite fast in the flight window. With a high lift foil is a killer combo.

Cheers

Re: Pivot Unbaised Review. Good Kite For Surf?

I love the Pivot for It versatility, It is one of the best freeride kite both for boosting and wave riding. The two videos below can explain better my words.

Re: Nash Trip as budget friendly lightwind option..

Hi Neptune. With the Trip 8 I had a couple of foil session in 14/24 Knots gusty side on wind, without any problems. I haven't explored the real upper end yet because I also ride with other kites (Flysurfer Soul, Sonic 2 and Stoke). Nevertheless for pure foiling the Trip is still one of my favourite ...
