Re: Anybody else got the 10 and 12mtr Ozone Alpha 1 strut?

180lbs, liquid force happy foil (high aspect and super unstable/twitchy but fast). ~9knots (10mph) I am foiling, below that I can't get really going consistently but the kite flies still. Sweet spots are: 10-15knots for foil, 12-18 knots for surfboard, 15-25knots for TT. 10m is probably just as good...

Re: Anybody else got the 10 and 12mtr Ozone Alpha 1 strut?

Anyone compare the Airush ultra 12 to Alpha 12? I have the Ultra 9 and love it but I'm moving to a real lightwind spot (Florida) and need a bigger one strut kite and I know Ozones are generally great kites. To counter the prior durability point: I've had a great experience with the 9m ultra and no d...

There is no water too cold to kite with current wetsuits and gear. Just make sure no ice and you stay close enough for an easy swim.

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

Those videos indicate that it is possible to launch in 1-2 minutes with advanced practice/knowledge/skill, which is encouraging

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

For the question: 9m Ultra, lines not attached. I just pump it up, run the lines and attach them, attach a U.go Gopro setup, and then self launch by pulling the rear line to rotate it and launch. 5 minutes total. I have big sandy beaches and will have them in Florida also. I just want to know if it'...

Foil Kite Setup Time

Hello, I have never flown a foil kite before. I kite regularly but have very little session time given children/job, typically 60-90 minute TOTAL session length including setup/commute - "babe I'll be back in an hour and a half" I can walk onto the beach and be riding with my Airush ultra in 5 minut...

Re: Ugo kite

there is a tight rail and a loose rail. The tight rail is for the regular front line, the loose rail is for the safety line so it can slide free through it.

U go is awesome, much better than the Jamrig

Re: How to self launch a kite

I almost always self-launch. Big empty beach. Slide launch, pulling rear line until kite catches and rotates onto side for launch. Works great but does put some wear on kite from sliding on the sand ~10 feet or so each time. Landing I pull safety on Airush (flag out front line) and the kite just sit...
