Re: 2nd hand racekites for budget race equipment. What 2 buy?

Hi From what I've heard the R1V2 is possibly one of the best kites at the 2nd hand market if going fast is your main focus > because its so easy to handle and because then you have almost all its performance within reach even if you are not the most experienced foilkiter. I have not tried it though....

Re: Moses 683 Freeride at speed

Interesting to read about 683/683s. Makes me want the 683s. for those who might know: Is 683s as easy to ride as 633? as stable when riding slow? as beginner friendly? wich is the fastest out of 683s and 590?

Re: freeride to race foiling

I would not recommend to just get the fastest kitefoils and biggest foilkites instantly - wich would be the choice of a very experienced racer. Then I would rather first get a carbonfoil where you can swap wings and get a high performance freeridewing that is fast but still stable + a racewing when ...

Re: Moses 2019

It would be great to get someone to do a review of the new 790 and 645 wings. I have tried the slingshot 84cm and that looks close to 790. Wonderd if the 790 is fast and carves good? Thats what the ss 84 does, kind of. And i like it alot. Need something different from my 590/558. Also intrested to h...

Re: Flysurfer 6 m Soul for hydrofoil

I belive that the depower of the soul is great if its used with short lines, then it shoots more to the front of the wind window. That is whats written at the flysurfer webpage. It could possibly be a bit harder to learn foiling with compared to some tame tubes, but its construction is robust(especi...

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

I mean shimming the w590 - s330 for a slower speed, would it be a good way to make it easier to control?

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

Lots of good advice, thanks!

Tom, yes the R1V2 9m is in my mind a great next kite.

I just remebered that shimming the foil is a thing, maybe its possible to make more lift (more front foot weight) to slow the foil down? Is that a good idea to make it more user friendly?
