New aquatik single skin by Conceptair

Postby Regis-de-giens » Sat Jun 08, 2019 8:07 am

I have been told early this week that Benoit Tremblay is finalizing its single skin concept, wave oriented.
Image
He woked on single skins years ago and re-worked on the concept this spring, oriented toward foil-wave application.

Knowing Benoit taste and skills to final tune kites, it should have glide and flight good cacteristics, hopefully

One proto should be received in France soon, i ' ll try to test it.

Thanks for informing,
looks good to me. Would be nice to hear more about the hybrid concept in the future.
In the context of GIN Marabou and Peak4 water usability, there has also been posted this about 7 years old prototyp from flysurfer:

Image

to me with the main difference it hasn't had close tip cells which could be pretty important for performance as we have seen GIN Shaman and directly Peak3 -> Peak4

On the other hand to me those hybrids still have to show their overall benefit over a Peak4 in the water. On the end FS could also be right that a hybrid is again to much compromise in terms of costs, behaviour, performance, weight ... Very happy so far with Peak4 :

Following this development with interest. First kite from Ben will apparently be a 4 meter, followed by 6 meters. Not clear if they are designed to be water relaunchable.

Yes it is designed to be water relaunchable. He is sending to two LesFoilZ riders two protos (2.5m and 4m). Hopefully, we will have more news soon here: http://www.lesfoilz.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4553

The first mono-skin 4m and 2.5m have now arrived in France. Two hydrofoil riders will test them soon (hopefully).

Some pictures here http://www.lesfoilz.com/phpBB3/viewtopi ... 3&start=30

I am waiting for a 6m to test for strapless surfing (no hydrofoil) -- it should be on the sewing table right now.

Looks like there is a user report on the 4 meter on the French forum.
