Re: How to learn to kitefoil in the waves

Thanks guys for your advice. Yesterday the waves were quite small like <1 m so I think bodydragging out of the break zone should be doable. Your posts sound encouraging so I’ll give it today a try. Unfortunately waves is all I got. Going somewhere else is currently no option. I wouldnt say "unfortu...

Re: Gong High Aspect wings

Dave K, what is the difference between the Monobloc carbon and the Carbon V2 mast, do you know?

There is absolutely no dimensions on any of them, as I see it :(

Is the V2 narrower at the bottom thus less drag? But not as stiff most likely...

Re: Low wind body dragging

Herman is spot on - the by far major mistake, even by experienced kitesurfers to retrieve the board, is to point too high with your arm/body. Think about that, just drag mentally across the wind and you will go upwind so to speak, a lot faster, and avoid the classic mistake trying to point up to you...

Re: Gong High Aspect wings

Are there already max speed numbers available of the H wings? Don't know what you mean Janus? Would not make sense as it depends on loads of factors not associated with the very wing :roll: I think there was a thread about this earlier - I don't find it can ever be correct so did not read through.....

Re: Gong High Aspect wings

First experiences: Couldnt jibe the Veloce XLH 1145 cm2, it would try to turn back halfways... Couldnt surf with wing flagged, it would tilt... Moved my front foot in over the centerline, and now I could jibe, but too unsteady when riding flagged. The Fluid M worked great, but tried it after the Vel...

Re: Gong High Aspect wings

Wouldnt make sense to use a Fluid H 42 or 45 stab for me, as they are bigger in area than my current Fast 40 stab and about the same AR and thickness. Yes you can get a 36 cm 141 cm2 Veloce stab now, could be interesting but we will have to see later, my Fast stab is perfect for now :thumb: Which st...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 5 is here

And you can not see anything "odd" when it is parked at 12, sheeted respectively in and out? It should be dead straight in both cases. I would have a friend watch your kite, or even better fly your kite while you watch it closely. Fly it down to hover a bit over the ground, and again sheet out and l...

Has anyone experience with these?

I got mine today, Fluid and Veloce, so looking forward to try the 994 cm2 AR 8½ and the bigger 1145 cm2 AR almost 10:
