Re: New aquatik single skin by Conceptair

I am out of office right now :-) http://lesfoilz.com/phpBB3/download/file.php?id=6317&mode=view I had not the proper wind to test the FF6 properly but I could it give it a go in small powerful waves although I had to walk upwind. I tested water relaunch by landing it in the water from the beach over...

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

Some downsides: high bar pressure on surfboard (tried just once, briefly, in wind too low to stay upwind); upwind angle not the best; likely not drifting as well as the Peak. I suspect that you are not using the adequate surfboard. You need a board that has some natural speed and lift, not the typi...

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

Stef, what's the techniques to get going in 15 knots? Please assume I am complete noob, which I am with this kite. First thing is to trim it right so you don't over-sheet without control (as I said above, I usually remove all over-sheeting by tuning the bar) . Then looping is the key as far as I un...

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

My bar was rigged a bit wrong with too much stall in powered trim. Have to lengthen my rear lines. On the water I couldn't get up, I tried to just power it across the window and it wouldn't pull me up, so I was over sheeting. I like to rig my bar on the CA waves so that there is no over sheeting fu...

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

Very good session yesterday with the Wave 8.5. Wind was awful, changing force (15-25 knots) and direction, but the main direction was slightly side-off and there was a nice 1m swell. Waves were opening, not very steep but a very nice hot summer fun session. The Wave was shining in the surf, the main...

Re: New aquatik single skin by Conceptair

The kite has now a name: Firefly

The new 6m is in fine tuning stage and should be on its route to France in the next coming weeks:

Re: Blast from the past: FS pulse

I liked the pulse 2 6m and 8m but there profile was too "fat" and they tend to saturate in the higher wind range, it was very noticeable with the 6m. It still baffles me that FS refuses to make another low to mid aspect foil kite that would be as friendly and easy to use as Pulse, an entry level kit...

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

You prefer 19M lines because they allow the kite to react faster? Yes I find it a good compromise in waves for that size on a 60cm bar (my 12.5 is on 21m lines). As I don't use the absolute low end because I am using a surfboard, I don't really need to push the kite to its low-end limits, I prefer ...

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

Started hydrofoiling last summer on our lake and I'm hoping that the kite will replace my 12M OR Flite for lightwind conditions (10-12 knots or just barely starting to whitecap). I'm 75 kg and primarily on the Slingshot Space Skate wing (1500 sq cm). I also have an Infinity 84 (2000 sq cm) which ha...
