Re: Self Landing Foilkites in 20+kts

For me the safest way is to drop the kite on the edge of the wind window at about 5 feet from the land and then backstall it and very important for me is to keep walking or running parrallel to the kite until the kite is straight downwind and then from this point I teather it to something rock soli...

Re: Self Landing Foilkites in 20+kts

Keep in mind that in strong winds , when you backstall a foil kite , the kite can and will invert sometimes if too much back lines tension is applied and this is a dangerous game . For me the safest way is to drop the kite on the edge of the wind window at about 5 feet from the land and then backsta...

Re: core kite , lines lenght of the kite to the high V ???

Looking at these numbers , I don't see a huge problem using a regular low V bar type like Ozone bar and 23 meters lines . This is what I had found with North . I think we should start a survey over High Y and low V to see who in reality use a bar equipped with a high Y for a kite designed for a High...

Re: core kite , lines lenght of the kite to the high V ???

PullStrings , just a thought : if at 28 meters lines the distance between the kite and the Y is 23 meters , to use a 23 meters lines directly at the V on the bar should be the same ? So at Core when they design their kites , should'nt they use a constant distance between the kite and the Y ??? :o

Re: core kite , lines lenght of the kite to the high V ???

Pullstrings , this is very appreciated . Do you know if Core use the same measurement for every kites sizes ? I had the same headache for North kites but after a while , I ended up leaving them on the Low V at the bar , the kites behaved quite good , the good point was : cleaner lines when landing o...
