Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

Aaaah, okay Regis, so you are not in waves that often, and dont want two wings, get it.

I will try to switch wings next time out on my 1200 Surf wing (quite often), to see how much slower turning the Kruiser will be, and feel :thumb:

Re: Air gibes in marginal winds

This video is one of kind which explain exactly nothing. What it show is clear for anybody who even dare to try. And there is nothing about foot switch which is thing that make that success or fail. So just switch your feet... :) Sorry nothing against this video in particular but there are lot of t...

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

Regis, I dont really know why you would want to use it in waves? Can not say how it would work, as then I have to use it on a small board with a small kite, not very likely when you got perfect wave wings for that, either medium sized or surf wings. Today, same gear but more wind, so after a small h...

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

I did not notice the speed when out, but have checked it now, set as doppler speeds (where you have no peak errors). Got absolutely no idea of how fast it can go, did not try to go fast at any time. Going downwind I went as deep as possible instead, meaning slow. A bit difficult in this fickle low w...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

I might stand corrected then :wink: So maybe windfoil and wing-surf foil can ride in less wind than we can with kitefoils, because they can stand/uphaul on their boards, and the now even bigger wings makes it possible to ride :D On a kitefoil with a LEI 4.5 m2 kite we can not get our asses up on the...

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

The investment HAD to be made, couldnt resist - out a couple of hours ago on my new Kruiser wing for the very first time, a short session. Not marginal wind, 7 knots, but 30 degree offshore so I rode up to the next bay where a bit onshore/sideshore at least, but as it was even more offshore further ...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

Although, on all pictures I see, it is REALLY windy always, so apparently not a light wind option in any way :roll: 8) PF Actually Peter if you look closely at the Robby Naish video or the Bernd Roediger video on page 3 of this thread you will see no whitecaps and quite light wind. :wink: CG Hi Chr...

Re: Why not more canards ?

Finally I got some riding with the Zeeko Spitfire XLW (on a 108 cm pocket board), my first impressions: As expected, having ridden the std Spitfire some years ago, one has to get used to it. Meaning, easy to ride straight away, BUT, you have to use maybe 5 sessions to get you muscle memory dialed in...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

It is really interesting, and an alternative to windsurfing, same winds, and it might have heaps of freedom when on a wave indeed :thumb:
