Re: Foil Gybe Advice

To the OP: can you gybe, heelside to toeside, on a TT or SB? This. If you don’t feel comfortable to do it on a TT and SB you will have hard time to make it on the foil. Master it on a SB and it will be much easier. You need to commit your self to lean against pull of the kite (not to follow) and so...

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

Did anyone tried the foil with wing? Is the size M good choice for 75 kg rider and 5 m wing for 15-30 knots wind.

Re: Wing foiling in gusty winds

That’s exactly what I was hoping for. How many liters you consider floaty board for 75 kg rider? 90-100 liters?

Wing foiling in gusty winds

Hi everyone, I started kitefoiling one year ago and it’s working pretty good for now. My closest spot is 2 hours away from my house so it’s too much for one day trip especially in summer time when roads are getting super jammed. I live in bay which is surrounded with mountains and the wind is gusty ...

Re: ozone Alpha 12 low end on foil?

Any kite can get you going in sub 10 knots. It’s about being able to keep the kite in the air. Lighter the kite easier will be. Practice your light wind skills on the beach to be confident with flying the kite in such conditions.

Re: Gong kites reviews and tests

Yes, bar is not the best. Safety line protection started to break down after 2 months of use and the black rubber above the chicken loop also. Lines seams to be good quality and you can connect it to any kite since endings are with loop and knot on top. I’m thinking about buying 6.8 unique, will be ...
