Re: What your most used kite size for foiling?

..was wondering what’s your most used kite size for 9-11 knots... in Miami Florida and weight 210 lb At my local spot we also usually have 9 to 14 knot wind and my most used kite is my 12m Soul (foil kite) and my friends usually use light 12m inflatables. Most of us weigh less than you so I would r...

Downloops and roll tacks wear out lines

Any move that results in your lines twisted will cause abrasion on your back (steering) lines. I had just noticed excessive wear on my lines (that I have used well over a hundred sessions) and I ordered a new set of lines.. but as fate would have it a rear line broke later that day (while I was down...

Re: Introducing the new Naish Boxer

Great to see Naish continuing to make great kites. I have owned several over the years and been very happy with their performance. Their old sigma kites were very good in that era.. the Cult was a very successful and easy to ride kite. (My friends running a kite school preferred to teach with it ove...

Re: 33% or 50% size gap for foiling quiver

In case anyone doesn't know, the practical wind range for various kites is charted below from most to least. This is why some kites can have a greater size gap in a quiver than others. Remember that wind range is only one property of a kite, one with more range is not always "better". There are many...

Re: Lightweight foil for wing foiling please

My 6' 4" Fanatic board is 96 liters and you don't want much smaller volume than this for learning (for average weight rider). It is just under 5 kg (11 lb) which isn't bad. But the airlines will certainly charge for oversize with this. My bigger concern is my foil: My Fanatic 2000 cm wing is 1.8 kg ...

Re: 33% or 50% size gap for foiling quiver

I fly a 8m and 12m Soul foil kites. The range with these kites is very good and I certainly don't need anything in between. For my smaller kites I have 7m and 5m Pivots. I rarely use the 7m and can go directly from my 8m Soul to my 5m. But occasionally I get overpowered even with the 5m (and then I ...

Re: Wingfoil - is it truly the best for really gusty winds? Better than Peak4?

I follow threads like this because I learn from people like Gunnar (gmb13) and Peter Frank (and some others) and I respect their opinions. I pay less attention to those who have never even tried it but I guess it's a public forum and any anyone can post..
