Re: Best kite for hydrofoil?

@ kitewin-1 Have you tried a 5m Peak? I have not tried a peak4 smaller than the 8m, I am only interested in the 8m which is equivalent to an 11m LEI. I am happy with my tube kites 9m and down.

Re: Best kite for hydrofoil?

You guys should try a small Ocean Rodeo Aluula Roam. I've had a 5m Aluula Roam for several months now - does everything just as well as my previous favorite surf-sized hydrofoiling kites ( BRM Cloud E's ) and covers a wider wind rage ( easily covers the range of the 3.7, 4.8, & 6.2m Cloud E's ). Ne...

Re: Best kite for hydrofoil?

Don’t buy into the peak 4 hype, it is a neich kite in a neich segment of kiteboarding. You will put the kite in the water and you will swim. I have the 8 and am disappointed, many will say I should have bought the 5m blaa blaa blaa. Having said that, there is room in my quiver for the 8m but not as ...

Re: Tear Aid A won't stick to bladder

Re: The worlds youngest kiteboarder?

I have taught judo for years so I have a fair understanding of the development of players, what force their body’s can withstand and as important what they are able to understand. I can stop a match when things are going south, in kiting you are all alone. 4 years old is far to young, 10-12 fir the ...

Re: Foil board advice

I have the same set up as you and have ridden the T22 for a year now, I weigh 63 kg, this set up is the bomb for me in all conditions. Of course this board has two front straps. If I were riding with straps then I would want one front, one back, my preference.
