Re: Where to get a custom made aluminum foil mast

Yet another option would be to take a carbon mast and make it stronger by adding a few extra layers of carbon.

Re: what is in your opinion the best light wind kite for TT

I prefer lightwind kites that are light; from inflatable kites I really like Naish Boxer (one strut). When it is really light then I use a foil kite (HQ4 Matrixx 18m) with line extensions, it allows to start early and is very manageable in overpowered conditions as well; there are many good foil kit...

On both sides I have thin fiberglass cloth in epoxy...

Re: Kite specific alaias

Here is one I made some years ago, real fun to ride, the size is about 170x50 cm. Lightwind capabilities and upwind is amazing. In bigger waves takes some care not to pearl the nose.

Re: What kite should I get?

My foil is a Gong Pro L (1350cm2) with kite stab. I am using Gong Pro M wing, in light winds I prefer Gin Marabou 9m (power-wise close to a 11-12m lei kite), when it gets a bit stronger I use 9m Naish Boxer. When it gets even stronger, I ride a surfboard. A while ago I tried a strutless RRD Emotion...
