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...

Re: inflatable kite

Are all inflatable kites suitable for colder temperatures (< -10C)? The materials should not become too brittle (like PU coated depower lines). In my area lots of people ride inflatable kites in winter (snow, ice) -- whatever kites people use in summer on water, the same kites they use in winter. I...

Re: Pocket board building

I am thinking: what if the pocket board would be thick and narrow (like 109cm long, 10cm thick, 31cm wide); I am planning to use with a big wing (1100cm2). What would be the drawbacks of making it narrow? Harder to switch feet?

Re: gong has no kitefoil anymore?

If you start with the mast page https://www.gong-galaxy.com/en/product/gong-foil-allvator-carbon-pro-mast-70-surf/ then on the bottom they list the compatible options. I bought this mast together with the M Pro Clear wing and 40cm surf stab, and I am very happy with my choice. I am about 80kg, the w...

Re: gong has no kitefoil anymore?

They do have kitefoils on their website https://www.gong-galaxy.com/en/category-product/foil-en/kitefoil-en/kitefoil-en-kitefoil-en/ . But those new carbon masts and large wings are listed as surf foils https://www.gong-galaxy.com/en/category-product/foil-en/surfoil-en/wings-stabs-fuselages-masts-en...

Re: Just not getting it

As other commentators have said, there could be something wrong with the setup. I had a setup once where I struggled a lot and somehow could not make it work; it was ok in flat water but could not start and ride in chop/waves. Then I tried a different front wing and suddenly everything became easy.

Re: hydrofoil under Airush Sector V5 54

I understand what you are saying but if you're already fabricating carbon plates - why not re-fabricate part of the board to accept 4 thru bolts (or a high density block + tracks) and have a 100% foolproof solution? That's not a super complicated project and you'll make sure not to wreck the tuttle...

Re: My friend borrowed me a north vegas 2011. Can I use it to learn?

You can definitely learn and ride on Vegas and enjoy it. What I meant is that there are other kite types better suited for learning.
