Lost GoPro HD Hero 3 Ouddorp The Netherlands

Today, despite a very enjoyable kiteboarding session I, unfortunately, lost my GoPro. It's a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition with a GoPro Floaty and Mygo Mouth mount (picture below). It was lost at sea somewhere east of beach entrance Noordweg in Ouddorp. It may float further down east to Rockanje, Oostv...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

What do you weigh? I'm 78kg and on an 1100 cm2 wing and find 12 knots to be the start of the sweet spot on the 5m. Pretty widely reported that there is a significant jump in performance going down from 8m to 5m so It really depends on what your after. Slower kite flying with more parked power or ar...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Longtime lurker over here, but have been on the Flysurfer Peak for hydrofoil tour already since 2017. I own a 12m Peak 3 which works wonderfully for light wind foiling. I have a Slingshot H4 wing 1502 cm2 and can go out using the Peak 3 in only 6 knots. After 12 knots I start to get overpowered. The...

Re: Switch to North from Cabrinha Kites ???

Hi Sebastien, Please note that the North Mono is a one strut kite, so please be sure that it is indeed the kite you've flown. 3 Strut North models are the Evo (as of 2018, before that it used to be a 5 strut kite), Dice and Neo. I don't know which sizes of the Switchblade you're used to go out with?...

Re: Wetsuit recommendation Cape Town Nov/Dec?

4/3 will be okay. You might get cold when in the water for a sustained period of time, because the water can be freezing. I usually use my 5/4 at Kitebeach or when surfing Llandudno and a 3/2 in Langebaan

Re: Three strut Hybrid C kites for foiling?

Thanks for all the input I have some experience flying kites in very low winds. But when approaching light winds for foiling, I'm new to that. I'm just torn between buying another Hybrid C in 12m which would double as a ordinary kite for unhooking and boosting etc. or buying a one-strut kite which w...

Re: Blade Kites

I used a Blade Trigger 2018 12m for a day when the winds were light and since I was on holiday I only had my 9m and 7m with me (Langebaan, SA). I rode it in between anything from 10-25 knots during that day and I must say that I did like how it behaved. In the super light winds it was stable and did...

Three strut Hybrid C kites for foiling?

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone has some experience riding hybrid C kites (FX, Dice, Enduro, etc.) with a foil in light winds? Some of these are pretty light like the FX and Enduro and perhaps would work in 8-12 knots (12m).

Thanks
