Re: gong has no kitefoil anymore?

If you start with the mast page https://www.gong-galaxy.com/en/product/gong-foil-allvator-carbon-pro-mast-70-surf/ then on the bottom they list the compatible options. I bought this mast together with the M Pro Clear wing and 40cm surf stab, and I am very happy with my choice. I am about 80kg, the w...

Re: gong has no kitefoil anymore?

They do have kitefoils on their website https://www.gong-galaxy.com/en/category-product/foil-en/kitefoil-en/kitefoil-en-kitefoil-en/ . But those new carbon masts and large wings are listed as surf foils https://www.gong-galaxy.com/en/category-product/foil-en/surfoil-en/wings-stabs-fuselages-masts-en...

Re: Just not getting it

As other commentators have said, there could be something wrong with the setup. I had a setup once where I struggled a lot and somehow could not make it work; it was ok in flat water but could not start and ride in chop/waves. Then I tried a different front wing and suddenly everything became easy.

Re: hydrofoil under Airush Sector V5 54

I understand what you are saying but if you're already fabricating carbon plates - why not re-fabricate part of the board to accept 4 thru bolts (or a high density block + tracks) and have a 100% foolproof solution? That's not a super complicated project and you'll make sure not to wreck the tuttle...

You can definitely learn and ride on Vegas and enjoy it. What I meant is that there are other kite types better suited for learning.

Re: My friend borrowed me a north vegas 2011. Can I use it to learn?

I don't think that learning on Vegas or any other C kite is a good idea (I found out it the hard way). It will be much safer and the progress will be faster on a gentler kite that has good sheet-and-go character.

Re: Foil for beginning and carving

Do you use the 70 cm mast for flat water or waves? ... I thought the 70 cm would be much easier to learn on. But we have a lot of chops at my local conditions, and sometimes quite nasty chops. And I wonder if 70cm could be 10-15cm too short when the chop is bad. I am using it in the sea, so there i...

If you get the gong get: pro M , surf stab 40cm, 90 cm alu mast.
Don't get the 70cm mast or the 40cm kite stab that's spec'd on the kitesurfing setup.
I got the gong 70cm carbon mast and love it, perfect for my local conditions.

Re: Foil for beginning and carving

Consider Gong Allvator surf wing pro, size M, with carbon mast and surf stab, it is sweet.
