Re: Buying advice for a beginner

I would consider 800-1000 cm2 as a nice size to begin and also able to feel the waves while riding with the kite. Then if you want more wave feeling go bigger. And if you want more speed go smaller and higher aspect. Very flat wings and especially very flat stabilizers are reactive and are going to...

Re: Buying advice for a beginner

A good question - but you have to be a bit more specific - list the types (models) you are looking at. As one can not say in general that newer is much better, eventhough the brands wants us to believe this of course :rollgrin: There are some "dogs" in history, to be avoided also. Shooting off the h...

Re: WtF man. Will I ever learn transitions...?

One note here, that contradicts what many says: Reasonable speed is your friend IMO (as opposed to "speed is your friend") If I carve and get too much speed on the way out, probably the kite is low, my foot change will most likely go bonkers, as the kite will pull sideways and the board might also s...

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

Peter_Frank do you ever ride the Wave XL or just the 1200 Kool for waves? I ride both Jake. When more wind usually the WaveXL, faster and more fun for me. But sometimes if windy and bigger waves, the 1200 Kool is my tool, sticks to the wave and not too much (overpower)speed :naughty: In lighter win...

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

No no I dont say it is better - the 1200V2 is still better in waves particularly if light wind, can twist much faster, and when you push it it is "soft", where the Kruiser will be harder in response and lift so to speak. Basic dynamics low versus high AR, the low AR is more forgiving and pitch chang...

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

That is a very nice review and thank you for the dedicated test. Seems indeed a very good choice for me, if not so expensive, i have to count my centimes ... Back to lower end : i understand you have a better upwind angle, but would you say that you are sure to foil-up earlier just after the waters...

Re: Show me new mutants or the latest "directional optimised TTs"

Plummet, what about seeing it as a huge chance, to get a strapped waveboard now, and learn to ride it well?

You will probably end up loving it, but you have to use some time and believe in it of course :thumb:

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

Have been out some more days now, easter holidays and perfect weather :-) 3 days ago out on the Kruiser wing first, and then the surf wing (higher AR 1100 cm2 versus low AR 1200 cm2) with a bigger LEI again. Upwind angles around 110 degree for the Kruiser, and just over 70 for the wave/surf wing. Wi...

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:
