Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I have 9m ultra, and I was betting on a big wing like infinity 76 to get my 80kg started as early as 8knts (although i might be dreaming). What I love about Slingshot is that they have got rid of the sharp edge on the side of the wing, I saw a guy who got 5 points on the leg after a very bad wound w...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I m looking for a foil from 8knts to 18knts, as it matches 80% of the conditions where I leave. If wind goes above, I prefer to go TT or surfboard as it also implies rough sea.

Re: Ultra v2 what size after 12m and 9m for wave/foil?

How is the ultra 10m doing compared to 9m?

I m very interested in this kite to get rid of my 12m while foiling.

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I am very glad for the enthusiasm to answer on this thread.

Any more feedback on the behaviour of Infinity 76 specifically for kiting? any difficulty to trigger 360?

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

Thanks again. I guess that somehow more input and more stable go in par. Out of curiosity what is your weight and low end wind on the h4 vs infinity?

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

Thank you very much for your feedback. Very helpfull and very much appreciated.

Timecode 68 looks good but low end is not as good as the others. 8knts with a 9m kite would be probably more a challenge with timecode.

How would you compare H4 and Infinity in terms of carving and feeling?

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

Many thanks! Those 2 wings are clearly for low wind. I thought from a range perspective, that both foils had more or less the same low end, and that only the high end was different with infinity being more comfortable with more speed. I was wrongly assuming maybe that the infinity coming with fsurf ...

Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

Dear community of hydrofoil experts. Does anyone know why Slingshot chose the SpaceSkate 65 wing to be part of their Fkite package? There were several options in their product range which on the paper sounded as good or better candidated such as timecode 68 for more speed or infinity 76 for more ran...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Anyone with experience with the new Ultra 10m to understand better what to expect from the new shape behavior compared to the 9m proven design.

Re: Looking for comfortable sleepers: nothing like good pads

Thank you very much for the advices. I m glad to see that I am not the only one with this existential doubt down there. I ve read a couple of times that North entity would not adapt always well with other standard kiteboard, or at least it could force you to use a weird setting. Pity because they we...
