Re: North skimfish Strapless foiling

I did use this exact same board when I started foiling. I drilled 4 holes, removed foam under the fiber using drill and alen key, filled with epoxy and micro baloon, and redrilled the holes. I had also re-enforced the bottom with a few layers of fiber glass in the foil mount area. It worked great fo...

Re: Which foil kite for light wind foiling

I asked myself the same question a few months back... I used foil kites (flysurfer speed 3) a few years back, but went back to LEI for ease of use. But then I started hydrofoiling... There are a number of good options: flysurfer speed 5, ozone chrono v2 (there is a light cloth version...) For me, i ...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

2 small videos of the pulsion 12m in Turks and Caicos. This is one of the first model (smart aquatik) still flying awesome! Wind was very light and warm. This kite is really user friendly... and light wind friendly! https://youtu.be/JW8bzloZD-U https://youtu.be/JW8bzloZD-U https://youtu.be/dUiw3U5-6...

Re: Ride Engine+Slider Bar+ Boosting

I used one for 2 boosting sessions on a TT. Incl. some kiteloops.
No problem when in the air. The chicken loop stays where it was when you launch the jump.
Found that sometime just before landing it slides when you position your body, but not a big deal.

Re: New inflatable Kite, 100% hydrofoil dedicated: Notus Air

I was using 27m lines. Board 150x50 with volume. Ketos hydrofoil - wave front wing. I should have taken the easy front wing... But not sure it would have made a difference since i could'nt even get on the board. Weight 78-80kg. To be fair the wind was under 10knt... with lulls... But the 15m juice +...

Re: New inflatable Kite, 100% hydrofoil dedicated: Notus Air

I had another "session" today on the 12m... Well... can't really call that a session... but got a better understanding of the kite. Wind was low. Definitelly less than 10knt. I decided to go with the notus air 12m instead of my LF solo 15.5 v1. Mistake. Drift launch is fine until i got to the launch...
