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

IMO for someone aiming for foilkites and waves on Hydrofoil, the Wave is the ultimate beginner kite: - extremely secure at launch, even plain window without inflation - unbeatable relaunch, - robust/ solid - instant depower better than competition, useful to balance the firsts fights - grunt power a...

Re: Test of Pulsion 3.69m

Now in Marseille in April, south of France, i just finished the editing... Always a lot of people having questions about how possibly to foil with such a "kite for kids " :baby: https://youtu.be/UV62LglqC28 What I love is the rapidity and safety of the preparation and launch... Now i am curious to t...

Re: Rollerbone

If indoboard also has a cushion, then it should be the same. I thought indoboard was with a cylinder only. You can find almost similar balance exercise, even cheaper in big sports shops like Decathlon in france or "Nature et Decouverte" : a simple round wood plate glued to a semi-sphere made of wood...

Re: Rollerbone

Yes it is a really great inversement. My wife offered me one in jully and i use it very often. Fun, and excellent for overall balance. And for foiling. IMO it is even better than indoboard since it is more easy, closer to HF reaction, and above all two dimensions balance (vs one dimension for indobo...

Re: Air gibes in marginal winds

thank you for your message and your welcome for the video; Yes , exactly, you got it ... you turn only after you have started sending the kite to the zenith ; this has 4 good consequences: 1- you still have lines very tensioned, hence the kite is very agile when initiating the turn 2- as soon as you...

Re: Air gibes in marginal winds

Here is a mix of several pivot-gibes i extracted for you during two sessions i light wind.It would have been better if the camera was not only on my helmet, but at least you can see the tight upwind angle , then kite sending and then its lift during the sort "ankle turn". https://youtu.be/XQRPQNrUfM...

Re: Which kite is the easiest to re-lunch at low winds?

don't forget to sit on your hydrofoil when you relaunch. It's the only way to get enough resistance against the wind. in marginal wind with a foil kite, I found out that it is not enough sometimes, and I get a better result by swimming backward ( with the Pulsion 15 m or 12m at least) ; physical bu...

Re: Test of Pulsion 3.69m

anoother one last week on the "promenade des Anglais" in Nice, great landscape with "Negresco hotel" ; in very low wind in the end, where even HF with 10m LEI had stopped riding ... I reached the shore with pain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIo8H2z4B30 also tested again in 25 knots and a bit more...
