Airush V3 carving foil for kite foiling

Postby Wazza Foil » Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:19 pm

I am currently testing the V3 carving wing and will have a second session tomorrow.
First session was in wind from almost nothing to 20kn plus so not ideal.
The carving wing looks like a refined Naish medium surf as it's slightly smaller and sleeker all over.
Anyone else had experience with Airush carving wing and/or the freeride wing?

Any more info since your last couple of rides?

Have you used the V2?

After a couple more sessions and testing the different configurations the Airush V3 is not for me.
Now testing Axis 68 and so far it's good.
I have had a short ride on a Moses 633 and was impressed but need another session.
I do have a Naish medium surf that I have wet and dry sanded 1200 grit smoothing all the graphics resulting in a significant improvement. It's possibly still my favourite and will be hard to replace.
