Re: single skin variable size kite Aeros S1 Duo

Honour to Aeros to revive the zipper concept. :thumb: I had two zipper kites around 2000 for about 2 years in use: Both Windtools Mosquito Prototypes - 9+ zipping down to about 7,8 m² - 5 m² zipping down to about 4,2 m² Difference was not as big as for the Aeros S1 Duo, but as in 2000 the zipper was...

Re: Best hydrofoil wave kite: ConceptAir Firefly vs. Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi Tom, not sure which kind of pulley bar you mean, there are very many constructions, already build about 5 different pulley bars, but actually don't see any need. Hi Stef, yes if you have a wave there is just the pull you normaly could reach with a paddle and in combination with a wave, off you go...

Re: Anyone own or flown the Slingshot phantom kite

Hi, haven't flown it, but heared about it from two guys I know. It seems to be a ELF 100% and as much race at least the canopy, but I remember there have been issues/versions with bridle that can have useless measurements. So 1. if you know ELF and like it, 2. if you can try it and give it back, whe...

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

Reminds me of another recent North (Duotone) overpriced game-changer Yes this thing was a funny joke, but also register: nobody here who this time makes fun or big words about duotone and the capa has tried it! I have tried it just two times about 8 and 1 month ago, friends have it in use continous...

Re: Anyone tried foiling with a wing?

So you think/see it is a lot easier to get out in onshore breaking waves than on a kitefoil Oz? Wouldn't expect this, even if having not to many sessions in serious waves with kitefoil and wingfoil, but quite some on windsurfer. With the kitefoil you are pretty fast to do a loop and start inbetween...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 2

I think there will be water relaunchable "Peak5" for small sizes. There is huge demand for such kite and they maybe already sell more Peaks for water HF than snow/land... This kite will be sooner than Soul 2. Just guess without any info. Yes would be interesting if they already sell more Peak4 for ...

Re: Ultra short lines or wing...?

What is a keystone bar? It is an advanced verison of the parawing bar, which just works with extremly short or better no lines. The kite turns always to the position of the bar and stays there static. Pulling left or right side of the bar is power/depower. http://www.parawing-beringer.de/images/fot...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Hi vol, looks nice and who knows maybe future foils will look like such a way in between, similar to foilfuns short fuselage foils. As for me the main focus is on low drag and a pure monofoil work already with the actual wings, I would prefer that. I think there is still much potential to make pure ...
