These posts are about winging, but helpful. I woukd definitely try for kite foiling the MA850 v2 before getring the 1050v2.

The links are obviously accessible after joining the North Foil group.

Hi

i need your help about kite foil from North

i am search a quiver for kite foil from North Kiteboarding

i would like a setup for light wind, i like wing withs good carving and good lift. (i have a normal kite foil level, Jibe, tack, etc)


i thinking in this combination:

Mast: CF95
Fuselage: C700
Front Wing: 1050 MA V2
Stabilizer: S210



you mentioned light wind setup? how much do you weigh and what kites? these are good factors to consider. but you are definitely going to enjoy the north stuff. i've been using it for years but i still have moses and lift and naish foils on hand for occasional use. i recently started using my HA1450 v1 for uber lightwind conditions,, and it works really good. my usual wing these days is the ma1050v1.

i think either the 85 or 95 mast would be fine for you, definitely get the c600 fuse though, and if you wanted a lightwind setup, it kind of depends on your weight but i would lean more toward the ma1200 or even look at the more high aspect wings. this depends on what you consider lightwind and weight and kites (somewhat)

what is nice about north is that if you get a wing that isn't doing what you need, they have a lot of other great choices

Hi

I am 80km, i have 2 kites for foiling

Airush ultra team v1 12m
Airush one v2 9m

With my old front wing (SS phantasm 633) i can start ride with 6/7 knots (with ultra 12m) and i start use the 9m with 12/13 knots aprox

Now i will try with ma850v2 but for speed i would like the HA 650 (but in the future... 2 or 3 months aprox)

personally, i can't imagine having a 9m as my smallest kite when kitefoiling. i wound up with a 5 and 8 as my most used kites,, and recently had to buy a 4m

finaly i can test 2 front wing

SF 930

HA 750

I will test in a week the MA 850 V2

But.. i love the HA 750, Have a big aceleration and i can ride with 8 knots with a kite Ultra 12m

both front wing (sf 930 and HA 750) had a good thingh, start ride with light wind, have very good liff but no high top spped, the HA 750 a little turbulence in a top speed (around 22 knots) the SF 930 have less top speed but more stable.

i use the s210 stabilizer.

now i am waiting for the MA 850 v2 and maybe the HA 550.
