Finally tried the 15 Ultra, but this time on a twin tip – too shallow to foil when I was visiting at Outer Banks.
For a twintip it's super friendly and gets it going around 12 mile wind on a small 137/40 board. Low bar pressure, turns relatively fast. Feels a bit like OR Flite, but w/o boosting chops. I need to try it on the foil because from what I've seen so far and it's only going to be exciting on that. For a twintip it's pretty bland. But we knew that anyway. (The Cloud 13.4 would be even more bland for a twintip though.)
Will post when I test it on foil.
Hey Piko, I'm glad you're shearing your experience with us about the Airush Ultra.
A friend of mine told me the he was flying on a HF with an Ultra 12 , while the regular kitefoilers couldn't keep foils sized >18 in the air.
I know the guy and trust that he is not BSing, but honestly its hard for me to believe.
Can you corroborate his claims by comparing the Ultra with foil kites?
They Ultras finally arrived to the distributor here, and I'm waiting for the ~10 knots conditions to compare the Ultra 12 with my Solo 12 side by side.
The main parameter that I will focus on is the 'lull survivability
while standing on h beach and riding under 10 knots.
