Re: Kite for waveriding

I'll second what Sonny is saying ... why not a bigger Airush Wave. I have a 7,9,12 and the 12m is the first kite I've ever had that I've liked which is larger than a 10m. It amazes me with it's low end and relaunch capability. My 9 is definitely faster but the 12 has saved a lot of days. My kites ar...

Re: 2019 Watches

I just bought the Garmin Fenix 5 late last month and am very happy. Battery life seems really good, haven't put it to the test but have yet to charge it overnight. Only charge it gets is when connected to my computer to configure or update apps. I didn't care about the maps or music and got the sapp...

Re: Moses Onda is there better for me

How about the AXIS 2019 S-Series 68 Foil? 1120 cm2 front wing and lots of mast options : 60/68/75/90/105cm. Limited reviews but seems like a solid design and no razor sharp edges. Know a guy who sliced the tendon on the top of his foot just by lightly kicking the wing and needed surgery. To me the L...

Re: Moses 2018

Tried the new huge 873 wing - not good for kite foiling, great for foil surfing. Too much lift on front like the Lift 200 wing. Had high hopes for this one, but was disappointing for kiting. Tested the 683 wing for a while - not good for kite foiling. Maybe ok for foil surfing. Not a well balanced ...

Re: LF Galaxy Board 2019

I have the 2018 board and it needs the plate but I think it's a good idea anyway. As Peter says, I like a protective layer between plate and board. It has never been an issue. I would not let it influence board choice in any way. For that size board, the Galaxy is a great board.

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

Hi Stef, I understand and appreciate your perspective. I love riding in the surf but am a bit of a hack out there. Comfortable but still lots to learn and lots of room for improvement. My motivation to get the CA Wave was to make my foil riding experience better. My 3 strut wave kites worked fine bu...

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

Hi Tom, my range on a sweet potato 5'2 (63kg, board is 32 liters) is around 22-23 knots (maybe slightly less) to ... I don't know, around 35-40 I think. I never switched to the 3m, although I usually live in a very windy place (South of France, exactly where the mistral comes in). Tony, the 4.5 is ...

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

Tom, My references wrt the CA Wave are on the the foil, the ranges I mentioned are foil ranges. I may end up using them on the Vader but my reason to purchase the foil kites was for the foil. My weight is just under 80kg and I'm riding the Levitaz foils, mainly on the Cruizer. Will post when I get t...

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

Tom, I decided to get the 4.5 after feedback from Benoit and digging a little more. Benoit says I can ride the 4.5 in 18-20knots (9-10m/s). The upper end is listed at 38knots. He says there is a lot of depower on these kites, much more than an LEI. I suspect that rider weight/skill and foil selectio...

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

For those with the 8.5/4.5 quiver, is there enough overlap? If I was comparing lei's, a 4m gap in those sizes would be huge and too much for me personally. Is the range of the individual kites larger? I've seen discussion of people going with 3/6.5 or 4.5/8.5 but again that seems like a big gap to m...
