I tested SUP wings kiting lately.
They need their own fuselage though! But that fits the kite masts.
I have been told you got out on the big wings, I am keen to know your thoughts
Not so famous
who told you that?
Been riding both setups: 633/483 and 683/483
Both with the SUP fuselage (of course, as only this fits the frontwings) connected to the 101 (kite) mast.
Initially I preferred the 683, but as I found out after switching between both and also kite wings in between that was because it feels closer to the feeling I am used to. Only that my stance had to move forward quite a bit (15+cm).
While the 633 allows more of the same/similar stance/trim as the kite wings, which makes it easier to use on the same board. And the 633 has more different characteristics to add to what there already is with the kite wings. It is way thicker than the 683.
So 633 is what I ordered for customers that want a super big wing for kiting.
It can go super slow with very little kite power, but I also rode it at 40km/h.
It stays comfortable pitch stable all the way.
Used it with 5m Hyperlink in strong wings, 12m Hyperlink UL in medium to light conditions, then 7m Hyperlink the same day and 19m R1 on a very light day.
Two sessions that had small wind waves too, feels amazing to get the drive of the 'wave' while trying to just keep the kite flying. Can not wait to ride some better wave conditions with it.
Learning to foil could be a walk in the park with it. I will give it a go with somebody new to foiling as soon as the water is not close to freezing anymore..
