Body drag upwind with wing

With a 2-3m line attached to front and back handle you can fly the wing like a kite, and while it’s very difficult, you can body drag a sinker board like a kitefoil board to get to deep water, even at a slight upwind angle. More experimenting and practice needed but it’s promising, as the main drawb...

Re: Had Low Wind Breakthrough For Big Guys Like Me 100 kg

Yep, you don’t need your 18m Pulsion anymore, so best to just send it to me.

There will always be a window where you need a bigger kite to ride. How big that window is, whether it’s the difference between 2, 1 or even 0.5 knots wind difference, is a personal matter for everyone.

Re: Foil kite waterstarting in low and marginal wind

With my strapless pocket board and race hydrofoil, I don’t have volume, planing surface, or lift enough to work the kite a few times to get up. It’s either one shot straight to foiling or I can’t ride. I think that limits my low end by a knot or two with my 15m Sonic Race, especially since I use 17m...

Re: Risk of a knot v risk of knot removal

Does the kite fly badly? Does it have a turn when bar is level? If not, don’t, mess with it. Pun intended.

Call Mike Z
As much as I’d love to, I don’t have 3K+ in the budget for a Mike’s lab… goal would be to use the kitefoil for kiting and winging by just swapping front wing.

Re: Race wingfoil: Moses SabFoil w800 and w1000

i got the 800 wing the moment it became available for purchase and kept riding it with 425 stabilizer for quite a while. It’s awesome and fast, the only imperfection I had to fix initially was quick sandpaper job on trailing edge to eliminate singing. I’m 205 lbs, I was kiting on it and I can recom...

Race wingfoil: Moses SabFoil w800 and w1000

Thinking of getting an 800 or 1000 front wing to put on my Comet 637/421 kitefoil for a race wingfoil setup. Both wings fit the kite fuselage I understand. Currently, I wingfoil on an old SS infinity 84 setup on mostly bay chop and occasional wind swell and I’m ready to ditch the learner gear and ge...
