Re: Light wind TT board length/width

Hello, My 2cents: I use a big TT for me and my girl so we are a more than 210lbs, and it will still grow up. I can start in 10-11kts with a light wind tube kite mono in 15sm. I think I can do 10kts with a 15sm foilkite, but not 9kts it is sure. This time I am looking for a bigger size foil kite to b...

Re: Building a state-of-the-art foil kite

Yes. It has been done by Olly Bridge, search for videos. How gusty, duno, ask him. We need to compare specific kite with a specific kite. Sure Soul can loop, can it loop better than Fuel? No, but than Fuel is not better in xyx comparing to Soul. If I may, you are taking this personally, it is not g...

Re: Building a state-of-the-art foil kite

To say Soul is a middle-low performance kite is a bit too much when it easily beats all LEI's and all other foil kites not including race kites by its L/D. But I'm not saying everyone should buy a Soul because there are many other things than L/D which are essential in kites. Soul is the best foil ...

Re: Building a state-of-the-art foil kite

Hello, Just my 2cents 1-Paraglider have nothing to compare with a kite. It is really not the same, really nothing to compare. It was different in the past and now there is really nothing to compare between a kite and a paraglider. So the art of conception for a paraglider is totally out of date for ...

Re: How low can a Twintip go?

Hi, I am 75kg, I have a special TT (same looking as your door). I can start to ride with a 15sm tubekite in one strut a 9kts And I think I am at 8kts with a foilkite in 14sm.
