Many riders have difficulties to control a hydrofoil and a foil kite at the same time.

That's why the paraglide manufacturer SUPAIR now offers new kites, some even equiped with autopilot:



Time to take out old paragliders to become your own autopiloted kite :D

that was awesome,
but what a pain to relaunch, I guess.

@Mossy 757:
Well, first try I guess. :wink: A bit to much dynamic in the system on the end, yes :D

Never say never: We learned that is possible to relaunch open celler, single skins .... and who knows :D

Had a first try some years ago, but unfortunately before I was able to have some proper relaunching experience, ..
.. the boat was coming to pick me up :(

So got to go for it again :D

Ah Lac de serre poncon. How did they manage the start? Did the PG fly down of the little hill and catch up the foiler?
