Re: Kite foiling set to die almost completely out as wing foiling takes hold

Surely, one major reason is that until recently nobody had wings, so anybody wanting to wing has to buy wings ... whereas kiters already have kites - they're not many people going out & buying a new quiver of kites every year.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Friends of mine have dropped using racekites for light wind, and love the Peak4 in 11 and 13 m2 because of their ability to hang no matter what, not fold and none of the issues racekites got :roll: Also, packing down (or up) is so fast, that one can just try to see if sufficient wind, as can be pac...

Re: Big Air advantage to being heavy?

In my imaginary world where I can boost 15m regularly, is there an advantage in being heavier for big air? Here's my thinking. At 80 kg on my 9m my sweet spot is 25knots and I get lovely soft landings as there is loads of canopy above me. Some time ago I sold my 7m kite as it used to drop me a lot ...

Re: Kitefoil, double skin - single skin Peak/FireFly?

To drop the wind range down to below the ca. 10 knots you need for a 6m Peak, what kite would be best? Not aiming for really low, like the 5 or 6 knots that is the realm of 21m race kites, but something more like 8 knots. Is a 10m or 12m Soul the appropriate size? A 9m or 12m FRS? Typically, the foi...

Re: Gong pro MT first impression

It's interesting that the new Gong 85cm carbon mast seems to be more or less continually "sold out", while the 100cm mast is not. This suggests that 85cm is the overwhelming favourite length choice for kite foilers (& possibly wing foilers also).

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi, I am considering changing my peak 4 from 5m to 6m. I am 70kg and ride a 1200 front wingfoil. I use the peak for the summer breze 10-15 knots in small waves. Is there a great interest in taking 6m? Thank you There's no "right" answer to your question. I was asking the same question & ended up ge...

Re: Gong Veloce impressions

Thanks for clearing this up! I do like the lowend of the space skate during still summer days, but it's hard to keep the wing in the water when i gain speed down a wave. I guess the curve might be for me then if I want to have good low end but a bit better performance in the waves? Also does anyone...

Re: Gong Veloce impressions

Sorry for hijacking the thread with a stupid question. But I can't seem to locate on gong's website the wing everyone refers to as Pro M. On the Gong website the kite foils are called Allvator all-round, freeride, freewave and veloce. Is it a new naming scheme? It sounds like a cheaper alternative ...

Re: Gong Veloce impressions

Can someone share some thoughts about the Curve Pro M vs the Curve Pro MT vs the Veloce M ? I'm undecided between Curve M and Veloce, and from the descirption on the gong page, the MT sounds like an inbetween. I have a dwarfcraft micro 3,6 does the 100cm CF " monoblok" mast fit to this board ? Than...

Re: Moses Onda 91 633 alternatives

I would recommend Gong. They have a "direct sale" business model which allows them to sell at a price almost half what the big name manufacturers are charging. There is no difference in quality. Gong offers an aluminum mast option at 529 Euros complete - there is 20% VAT taken off that price if you ...
