Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

Sounds like challenging conditions. How hard is it to self land these kites? The Matrixx is super easy to self land. Never had an easier kite to land. The CA Wave is a little trickier because it doesn't backstall well and also it turns easily. My best bet is to bring it low to the side and grap bot...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

I tried something different yesterday and went out on twintip with the wave 6.5. Wind was average 16m/s but quite gusty to the point were water was being blown away. It didn't really work very well. The kite is too sensitive to lulls and is not very enjoyable riding powered up. But as soon as you go...

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

I guess we see what we wanna see... Then I see what looks like a foilkite going to 5th line safety with instant powerloss. Ram airs are DANGEROUS!! Even if what we're seeing here is a deliberate flag-out on the 5th line (rather than a completely uncontrolled ram air collapse), it begs the question:...

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSmG9xK_8Vs Back in 2009 with Psycho4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSmG9xK_8Vs What a disastrous advertisement for ram airs!! Check out the ram air kite collapsing and deforming between 28s -> 34s. This could've easily ended in tears, injuring the rider and/or the...

Jannik,
What's your range on the 4,5 on your surfboard and what's your weight?
~80 kg and my board is Paipo style.
I'm using it in 12m/s and up - and haven't met the upper limit yet. I've been out in 20 m/s without issues.

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

Hi I have a CA Wave 6,5 and a Reo V3 10. I would say the Wave is comparable to a Reo 9 (closer to 8 than to 10) I hope this helps Thanks Sombra, That helps and kind of confirms what I'm thinking. I'm not having much luck getting this kite out in the right winds. Saturday was blowing pretty hard, av...

Re: New to Foils, bought a Pansh A15 12m

.........Quick question: can I self-launch by putting some sand on the trailing edge of the kite? Or is that not a wise thing to do? I don't think a stake is an option at this spot, it won't hold. is there another way to self-launch? None of my normal LEI options seem to apply to a foil kite ! F-Be...
