Re: Moses wingfoiling wings for kitefoiling

We talk a lot about kites for low wind but little about wings, this summer I bought the w790 1550 cm2 makes everything easier in ultra light wind. Now the kitefoilers who enjoy the lighter breezes are in luck with the appearance of wingfoiling as they are developing more efficient wings for lightwi...

Re: Kitesurfing at night

i often ride at dusk.. (swell tends to be peaking and generally i'd have the entire bay to myself) i know the kite shop in houston did night rides years ago (not sure if is still a thing there) at least there it is flat water and the hazards are relatively easy to spot. i believe the tied glowsticks...

Re: Gin Kiteboarding Spirit

There isn't a V2 Spirit, the Spirit is a new kite (came out about a year ago) so it is already comparable with that latest Chrono and the Spirit V2 . There was a colour change moving away from the bright yellow on early kites but both colour schemes are V1, there won't be a V2 for at least a few ye...

Re: Small kite 3-4m2 that does not deform under load.

if your "load" is coming from waves breaking on the kite... maybe, 1st order is to simply keep the kite out the water(no new kite needed) i mean...does ANY kite relaunch well from waves? (hint: your kite is a kite..not a submarine.. it does not belong in the water) as far as your original question.....

Re: The beauty of foiling

i love it.. i can spend a lifetime doing nothing but that...every single day. btw, you can get *very* similar feel to the tow-in by foiling with a single skin kites working pacific rim waves(places like cabo, peru, hawaii, etc) ideally with light side shore breeze or thermal winds (...just enough to...

Re: Small kite 3-4m2 that does not deform under load.

Hi. I'm looking for a small kite 3-4m2, for foiling, that does not deform under load. I­`m heavy guy(100+kg/220+lbs) and when i'm waterstart, my current kite deforms heavily. Someday it will explode and i dont like long swims in 20+knot wind. Any sugestions, ideas? what is your current kite? Foil k...

Re: Gin Kiteboarding Spirit

I have had about 20 rides on the Spirit 15m (full disclosure i have become a dealer/distributor) and I agree on most of the points above. I actually think the inflation is amazingly fast and I never pre-inflate. I agree RE the bag, I have already sent feedback to HQ that an updated bag should be in...
