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

Thanks for the review! It matches my experience, the Alpha stays in the air without moving even at 45 degrees in very light winds when other kites just hindenburg down.. As mentioned in another review, I found its lowend slightly higher than a North Mono 2017 of comparable size, which manages to get...

Re: Strutless Kites Cloud vs. Gong

@lightwind. Using a LEI from 6 knots? Forget it. Even in colder more dense winds you need at least 8 kts. If you are after sub 8 kite that has the feel of a LEI take a look at Foilkites (Kitech FRS, FS Soul, PL Nova or CA Pulsion) I do not fully agree with this, it all depends on the set up (kite/ ...

What’s about their weight??
Yes, important point. Nothing to be found on the website. Low weight essential for light winds, where many folks will want this kite for.. (foiling).
I look forward to test it against the other one strutters, especially Ozone Alpha..

You dont feel weight.
I do not agree. Like on a bike, you DO feel weight on a hydrofoil.
Light equipment so much more agile on the water, independent of shape.

But as mentioned above, its about personal preferences...

Re: Foils that don’t sink. How much of a problem is it

A foil floating on its side might also be a good thing in some situations: - Much easier to spot when there is a bit of chop and the sun is at a bad angle, especially when strapless. I know several cases of "lost foils" in such situations, especially in beginners. - Does not hit the ground so fast i...

Re: starting on duck tack to toeside

It is essential to be balanced and in line with the foil during the move. When going into the upwind carve lean forward a little bit, then once you face 180 degrees in the opposite direction (= the new direction) be centered over the board. As described in an earlier post from another poster, there ...

Re: Kitesurf Greece, Naxos

The Mediterranean Sea does not have "normal" swell in general, as you would see in usual wave spots on the ocean. With the usual summer Meltemi winds from the North, there are some wind wave spots up at the north of the island approx. 10-15km from Chora, the main town. Wave height can reach 2m+ on w...

Re: starting on duck tack to toeside

There is another thread on the topic here with some good explanations: https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2401387 I found it much easier than the jibing and foot switches. Key coaching points: - Kite at around 12, fly with back hand - bend your knees - lean forward - short carve upwind - st...

Re: Kitesurf Greece, Naxos

Naxos is very windy in summer so for sure you will have enough wind, bring the small kite (like tarifa, which I believe is your usual spot according to your profile). Mikri Vigla is the beach where the kiting is happening (several kite schools there). To get to Naxos, you can either take the plane o...

Re: Day 1 Finished - King of the Air 2019 - all info here

Agree. Petreau was downvoted in the two last heats which he should have won.
Definitely the most variety of all riders from what I have seen today..
