Has anybody else experience the flying overhead and dropping especially in light wind, starting on 1:52?
I have a 10m which I used to about 6 knots.
Did not have any issues parking the kite at 12 although I did not try to pull the frontlines for intentional front stall test.
I did need to downloop the kite when parking at the side of the window at this point. So it was at the edge of what it could do.
My other experiences:
I think that you will need at least 10 knots for deep water relaunch. Being still an absolute noob on the foil I would be hesitant to go out with less then 10 knots on my 10m.
An experienced rider on a big foil can probably fly it down to the 6-8 knot range. (75KG)
Also had a session on a twintip, was about 20 knots so a bit low for proper jumping but it’s quite a fun kite. Power delivery is very smooth an it feels as quick, if not quicker, as my 8m XR6.
