Re: Why not more canards ?

What is it you reckon that allowed your progression again? Do you think it's the canard geometry that was limiting you, or mostly the fact that your S24 is significantly bigger? (1126cm2 vs 800cm2 for the XLW) When I put the bigger XXLW wings, most of the things were initially easier due to extra l...

Re: Why not more canards ?

I’m 3 years into foiling. I spend half my time in waves and the other half in flat water. I started on a Zeeko Black and White and then switched to the Zeeko Carver wing. A year into foiling I switched to the Spitfire with standard and XLW wings. I really liked the Spitfire but hit a wall as far as ...

Re: Cabrinha Apollo

I’ve been riding the 2017 7m Apollo in our flat water slicks on a twintip for the last few months. I’m really liking this kite for big air and gusty winds. I figured the kite would jump well but I am surprised how wells it turns. I’m 165 lbs (75 kg) and ride the 7m from 20 mph to 40 mph. Pretty much...

Re: starting on duck tack to toeside

What helps me with this tack is leaning into my chicken loop line. If my chest is touching my chicken loop line during the tack I normally have a good tack.

Re: Foil board up to 120cm - what’s out there?

I’ve been riding my 42” Kanaha Shapes board for 7 months now and really enjoying it. Definitely worth a look.

Re: Moses Onda is there better for me

I haven’t ridden the Onda but I’m really enjoying my Cloud 9 S24. They are on sale for $1099. Definitely worth a look.

Re: Getting out through a shore break dump with a foil

The two things that make this easier for me are a low volume board and a big wing. Much easier to duck under the shore break with a low volume board and easier to to do a flying start with a big wing once there is a break in the waves. Last one is timing the set waves and heading out during a lull i...

Re: Moses T38 vs T22

I have been riding the 106 cm Kanaha Shapes board as my only board with my Cloud 9 S24 surf foil for the last few months. No issues with the 106 cm board in winds for my 3.7m to 10.4m Clouds. With the surf foil I have no issues getting started as long as there is enough wind to keep my Cloud kite pa...

Re: Sanding the trailing edge and wing tips of the LF Impulse?

Compared to my other foils my Cloud 9 (LF Impulse) is very dull. I would not sand it.

The dull tips and edges was one of the selling points for me. Seems a lot safer than other foils.

my frustration with the clouds is the very narrow sweet spot for each size. if I was riding clouds again I would need 4 clouds to cover 8 to 35 knots. with the reo I need two kites!
What size Reo’s do you fly?

Before Clouds my go to quiver was 7m, 9m, and 13m first gen C4’s.
