Re: 19m kite

A 19m will not get you out in super light wind say 6 knots like a hydrofoil with ultra light kite. The problem is those big kites usually have many struts and are very heavy they work good for a larger rider to ride in 10 knots but they will fall from the sky in conditions where a foil kite or a ver...

Re: A Flock of eFoils

I saw a video of an efoil demo yesterday it was in OBX and looked recent. That was probably what you saw. At the price these things are selling I doubt they will spread like wildfire!

Re: Shinn Jackson - Sunburner

I have the Jackson 145 and P and F wing that's what I used to learn on and it's a great setup. Now I have a Groove skate with an Axis foil but I am holding on the Shinn foil it's indestructible and super easy to ride. I was on trip last week to Cuba where the luggage handler are particularly nasty I...

Re: BEST Gear 2019 - any experiences?

I have been riding Best kites for 10 years and my experience has been good. I currently have 3 Rocas 2017 and I love them the hang time is insane. I was thinking about getting a 12m and 9M with the current sale deal going on to upgrade but I could not find a single review of the 2019 Roca. I'll stic...

Re: 75 cms mast

I learned on the same foil with the 60cm mast and it was fine for flat water. When you ride in waves the longer mast is needed because your wing can come out of the water when you are leaving a big wave and hitting the lower part of the next wave. That's a great setup for learning most people can ri...

Re: Which 5 or 6m kite you guys advise from Duotone/North?

From Duotone definitively the Evo lower aspect delta shape kites like the Neo tend to be very stable they want stay in place and won't fly all over the place and that's good in crazy high wind. If you are willing to look at other brands the Ocean Rodeo Prodigy is super stable and you barely feel the...

Re: Two quite quiver?

I used to be 100kg an Airush Ultra 15m works well for me from 6 knots to 15 on a low aspect foil and then I can use it up to 20 knots with a twintip. If you don't want to foil you will need a huge door and a huge kite like a 21m Flysurfer. It's way more fun with the foil! I also have Roca 9m awesome...

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

I learned with the Airush Ultra it was designed for foiling and it's fantastic. There a lot of discussions about it on this forum. I think a 12m and a 9m would be good combo for most folks. I have a 15m too but I'm heavy and I do mostly super lightwind. I learned on a 60cm mast and then moved to 90 ...

Re: Best Foil for Absolute Beginner?

The Shinn foil is ridiculously easy to learn on. With the Jackson 145 board P wing and 60cm most people are riding in less than one hour often 15 minutes. It makes a great lightwind foil after that. You can ad a faster wing and long mast when you are ready to go faster.
