Re: New aquatik single skin by Conceptair

Following this development with interest. First kite from Ben will apparently be a 4 meter, followed by 6 meters. Not clear if they are designed to be water relaunchable. Yes it is designed to be water relaunchable. He is sending to two LesFoilZ riders two protos (2.5m and 4m). Hopefully, we will h...

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

Sorry to just break into this thread but I have a very old Concept Air Wave which is rigged as a 3 line kite ie brake line all attached to third line. It is still a lovely canopy and it pulls like a truck. In your opinion is it worth making a mixer for it and if so do you have any pointers for desi...

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:
