Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

I had an interesting session yesterday. We were slightly optimistic. Wind was 20-25 knots with small waves -- forecasts were 25-30 but the hour was not very precise. We had to go upwind to reach a cleaner playground so I took the Wave 8.5 (wind range being very large) and a smaller board (Stretch 5'...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

No this is not normal, my 8.5 drifts very well (for a 8.5). You can have a taco when you push it too far with slack lines (and you can play with it) but this is not normal behavior. You should contact Benoît.

Re: No information and lack of exposure

Does anyone use these kites for wavekiting? Or are they a niche market for low wind and foilboard kiting? I don't know of anyone who is using foil kites for waves. They are simply too slow, and they don't have good drift capability when compared to good wave LEIs. There are some really good surf sp...

Benoît has just finished an expedition on the Baïkal lake with his kites (7/800 kms solo without assistance from South to North). The smart 4.5 was his high-wind kite:

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

just received my 8,5 can't wait to test it :-) It would be nice to have a review!

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

Here is short video with the 3m on hyrdofoil (not me, I don't hydrofoil -- boZZo the other admin of LesFoilZ.com). This is the low to medium windrange. Upper windrange according to the same rider is gusts up to 45-50 knots on hydrofoil (no kidding!!! Mistral Power!) https://vimeo.com/313348760?fbcli...
