Re: what is in your opinion the best light wind kite for TT

I prefer lightwind kites that are light; from inflatable kites I really like Naish Boxer (one strut). When it is really light then I use a foil kite (HQ4 Matrixx 18m) with line extensions, it allows to start early and is very manageable in overpowered conditions as well; there are many good foil kit...

Re: Kite specific alaias

Very beautiful, how thick is yours? What wood is made of? What is its weight? Thanks It is made from a glued wood plank, thickness is 18mm, I have made the edges and the nose thinner, also slight concave in the middle. The wood, I believe, is fir. On both sides I have thin fiberglass cloth in epoxy...

Re: Kite specific alaias

Here is one I made some years ago, real fun to ride, the size is about 170x50 cm. Lightwind capabilities and upwind is amazing. In bigger waves takes some care not to pearl the nose.

Re: What kite should I get?

My foil is a Gong Pro L (1350cm2) with kite stab. I am using Gong Pro M wing, in light winds I prefer Gin Marabou 9m (power-wise close to a 11-12m lei kite), when it gets a bit stronger I use 9m Naish Boxer. When it gets even stronger, I ride a surfboard. A while ago I tried a strutless RRD Emotion...

Re: inflatable kite

Are all inflatable kites suitable for colder temperatures (< -10C)? The materials should not become too brittle (like PU coated depower lines). In my area lots of people ride inflatable kites in winter (snow, ice) -- whatever kites people use in summer on water, the same kites they use in winter. I...

Re: Pocket board building

I am thinking: what if the pocket board would be thick and narrow (like 109cm long, 10cm thick, 31cm wide); I am planning to use with a big wing (1100cm2). What would be the drawbacks of making it narrow? Harder to switch feet?
