Re: Hydrofoil wings that work in seagrass areas

We get a lot of weeds here at the end of the summer. My Shinn foil with P wing and short mast works really well the weeds just glide away and don't stick to it! It's a bit rounded wing and the stab is swept back!

Re: Neil Pryde CR-X opinions

I don't have one of those but several people around here bought them last year in crazy like 75% off kind of deal. The foil works ok many are doing well on it but the board looks like it flexes a lot compared to a regular boards. The kites appear to be based on Cabrinha design. The CRX experiment is...

Re: Foil bag?

The Shinn foil comes with a really nice bag that can fit the foil with the 90cm mast I can squeeze it in a big luggage so I can split the weight between board bag and luggage.

Re: Shinn rear stabilsers

I have been using the ST1 with the P and F wings it was the only one available when I bought my foil. It works good for me but I never tried the other ones. The ST3 came out at the same time as the Mega K and I have been told it's the one to use wit the Mega K.

Re: Best country to be a refugee in claim welfare and kitesurf all day forever

My spouse works in the immigration business to be a refugee you need to prove beyond any doubt that that your life is in danger in your home country and that you sought assistance from the local authorities. You need to apply for refugee status in the first safe country that you visit outside of you...

Re: Light wind kite advice

Liquid force kites are very heavy heavier than most brands that will impact your ability in light wind. I had a 12M Solo and despite the fact that it was a single strut kite it was heavier than my 12M Roca with 3 struts and much heavier than my 12M Airush Ultra. You don't mention your weight but ass...

Re: Any value in a 2005 Naish Boxer?

It's only as good as what you can use it for. Of course there is zero retail value but if you live where the wind is steady and the water shallow you could give it a try! I've seen people ride those ancient kites in the winter on the snow where it's safer if you get in trouble. If you decide not to ...

Re: Pansh kites for ligth wind

I have the 22M Aurora 2 one one the first one they ever made I got it like 3 or 4 years ago. It flies good it is insanely powerful more than a 21M flysurfer but much slower to turn it's crazy how slow it is. I use to ride it with a big door starting around 5 or 6 knots on the water in the winter lik...

Re: Best waroo year

It's a 2007 the 2007 was harder to relaunch in the bigger sizes 15m+ the 2008 and 2009 were the best of the bunch. Many people still ride those kites they were pretty good. The 2007 flew well and had a bit more power than 2008 but I would not get one because of the relaunch.

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...
