Re: Ketos Foilers - What boards are you riding

Well my new board arrived yesterday. Decided to be conservative and went with the 118.
We'll see how it compares. If very close my 130 may be for sale :)

Re: Considering a switch to foil kites

I've been slowly switching over ... really liking the CA Firefly, similar to the Peak4 but with a ram-air leading edge ... relaunch! These are super fast and responsive, medium aspect kites. I like them better than LEI's in higher winds, don't get the power spike you do with LEI's. Landing with an a...

Re: Self untwisting Bar with good stopper?

Other than adjustable width the Duotone Click Bar fits your requirements.

Re: Single strut kite wind speed?

I think it also can depend on the quality of the wind, is it a consistent 15 or is it up and down. I've had times where my 7m 3-strut worked fine but then the wind would get lighter for a bit and I'd have trouble keeping it in the air. On this particular day I was going back and forth between my Ult...

Re: grand cayman spots

I was there Feb 2-9 and rode at Barkers and the East End ... Colliers Beach. It's pretty much all flat/chop, the island is surrounded by a reef. We stayed in the West Bay about 1/2 mile from Barkers. Rode Barkers most days with ENE to NE winds. Barkers would not work with any S component. Rode the E...

Re: New aquatik single skin by Conceptair

Falling in love with these Firefly's. Have the 2.5 and 4.0. Just ordered up the 6.0. If you are at ll curious you need to try them out. I could go on about them but everyone has a differnt perspective and needs to experience for themselves. We are all different. I've converted! Hit me up if you're i...

Re: Rear wing suggestions for Ketos WaveXL

Update: Ended up buying the S2 stab. Bought the WaveXL before my Grand Cayman trip last week. Rode a few days with the WaveXL and Karver stab that I had. Figured change one variable at a time so have yet to try the S2 with either wing. I'll try some different combos this spring. Most curious to try ...

Re: Caribbean alternative to Cabarete for early February

Been in Grand Cayman this week. I only brought my foil so can only comment from that perspective but the wind has been good. We're staying in an Airbnb in Villa Pappagallo in the West End, just at the entrance to Barkers. Probably one mile to the kite spot. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and it was ...

Re: Caribbean alternative to Cabarete for early February

Barbados in February is on my list for next year for my 40th, I've been all over the Caribbean but never to Barbados. Swell and wind sound perfect, and it's on my goofy footed side. Any suggestions on where to stay with a non-kiting/surfing wife? Going there tomorrow. :thumb: Going to Grand Cayman ...

Re: Small pocket board - looking for recommendation/advice

Lots of good information on this thread. I'm thinking of going a bit smaller and weighing the benefits. I don't have flying foot switches yet but am working on them. Maybe I'm the exception but travel is not an issue for me with my current 130cm board. For the few annual trips I take the airlines do...
