Great information, all around. I still think I'll try an Ozone Hyperlink V2 and decide from there. I am really excited to dump the pump, and travel lighter.
Swims because of single skin?jakemoore wrote: ↑Sun Apr 28, 2019 2:32 pmI have had both unrelaunchable Tube and Foil kites in waves. There is less chance of a foil kite becoming unrelaunchable but its more of a pain in the rear. Then you have the single skin trend. I have had more stupid swims in the last 2 months than in years of kiting. But its so fun I feel compelled to go out again.
i have not tried all good wave kites yet... but the best depower and drift i have ever seen on any kite is Concept Air's Wave (smaller sizes only)FLandOBX wrote: ↑Sun Apr 28, 2019 1:20 amI don't know of anyone who is using foil kites for waves. They are simply too slow, and they don't have good drift capability when compared to good wave LEIs. There are some really good surf specific LEIs on the market.
I think foil kites have found good use for low wind conditions and foilboarding. But in addition, they are being used more and more for moderate to high wind airstyle riders who want the extra hang time a foil kite provides.
