Re: an ultimate weapon for marginal wind ?

I have tried gin marabou 12m and I can easily kite in less wind with my 17m R1V2. Would be interested to try your mod. I have been thinking of doing the same but could not bother because of the extra work. Rather spend that time training foil pumping. Ultimate lowend for me is Flysurfer race 21m. Bu...

Re: Downwind Technique

yep, it has lot to do with kite choice. Personally I only use foil kites so my tipps might not be the best here

However, looping helps. Keeping the kite moving up and down helps. backstalling little more than usual helps. Big wing helps a lot.

Re: Best ultra-lightwind hydrofoil

For me the issue is the waterstart in ultimate light wind. I can hold my 21m sonic race in the air in 4 knots. 5knots I can kite. 4 not. I am getting now bigger wing so maybe I can kite with it in 4 knots. I have now spitfire with custom carbon wings, close to xlw. I am gettin xxlw for ultimate ligh...

Re: FS Soul 15m or 18m for very lightwind foiling

With big wings you really don't benefit much from the bigger kites. (80kg, spitfire, custom xlw wing, style freestyle, staps and strapless Strapless freestyle: I can kite 19m R1V2 when the kite stays in the air moving. (too low wind to keep it in 12 a clock), about 4 knots. I would not call this enj...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic Race VMG

Hi, update. 21m kite is still very difficult to fly. I have flown R1V2 19m which is very easy kite. Also elf joker 8 in 15m is easier kite to fly. Also P L aero 2 is easy compared to race at least in very big sizes. I deffinitely won't recommend it in gusty lake conditions. About boosting. Finally g...

Re: Pansh vs cloud c5 13.5

Hi, im new hydrofoiler and im at the intersection of choosing between the c5 13.5 to pansh aurora v2/a15. My goal is to surf at 6-12 knots with the kite but also to have fun with a fast responding kite to its size. Another fear that i have is the relaunch and self rescue. To summarize i would like ...

Re: F one Diablo V1 12m

Diablo V1 is excellent kite. It is fairly easy foil kite. stable compared to many other kites of the same age (Sonic fr, Elf joker 7, R1V1) It is good for hydrofoil. It is ok for freestyle. Does jump ok, not as well as flysurfer sonic fr. Turning speed is very low, lot worse than flysurfer sonic or ...

Re: Sonic FR 11 Long Mixer Test

Hi,

I have done the long mixer test to all of my flysurfer sonics. Race kites are quite prone to frontal stalls and even frontal collapses. I would tune little by little towards correct measurements.Most likely if you tune it all the way to correct, it will be unstable
