Re: Largest jumpable foil kite for hydrofoil bigair

Yea, it definitely needs decent planning :) So can we reach a consensus that 15m is the biggest bang per unit of the hassle associated with large foil kites? This is my feeling. 15m on 21m lines down to 6 to 8 knots where boosting is more rolls etc. Throw 6m extensions on to allow for even lower di...

Well, the then next question - do they really boost any higher than you on 15m?
Yes but in fumes it doesn't bother me. :D

Largest I run is 15m Soul but many in our crew go up to 21's and are boosting pretty big, ....but its an acquired taste and errors are followed by 21m of self rescue fun.
Boosting 21m foil kite on hydrofoil? What length lines do they use?
27m, down to 20ish in the 17m range

I think because of the physics involved a shorter mast can ride with stability closer to the surface. At least it’s how it appears for me in more shallow waters.
nope, nothing do do with stability close to the surface. Water is water...unless foamy.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

After how many sessions should the first mixer need doing? Only used my 10m 6-7 times but it seems to be dropping me down fast after jumps. It has been quite light wind lately though so may be that but Just wondering if they need a tune up after bedding in? It takes literally a couple minutes with ...
