Re: Best kite for sub 10 knot foiling

You don’t mention what line lengths you are using. This is an incredibly cheap and effective upgrade. I don’t use anything bigger than an 11m kite at the moment (5 strut so it’s a bit heavy) but I use 36m lines. Double your lines up (super thin race lines if you can) and I bet you’ll be surprised ho...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Just wanted to chip in about the Takuma design that I have bought- it is an excellent foil to learn on. In fact - the kite school I will be teaching at will be using them. The Takuma design is the slowest and most stable foil on the market, but that is also its Achillies heel. It’s a versatile SUP f...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

That's what makes it so much fun actually. If you watch most wave foiling videos by amateurs, we end up riding...

Re: Is it possible to kite a surf-foil?

I have the same zeeko. It's a great foil. I also tend to outrun the foil and have to turn back towards it. The surf foil like Takuma is a lot slower.

Re: Is it possible to kite a surf-foil?

Nice ! Is that a zeeko ?

Looks like you are still pretty fast and outrunning the wave. If you can, try a SUP/Surf foil like Takuma or GoFoil which are much slower and will allow you to stay with the wave.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Jzh What are the mast lengths? (cm) I bought 60 and 76. They also have 91 cm available too But They have also confirmed they will take customer orders for any Length you want. I am toying with a 40-50cm mast as I intend to use it in a kite school this summer. I could always cut the 50 down - I am u...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Ready to ride. They also include the t nuts and screws too. No TefGel but I guess that would be expecting too much.
