now well into my 2nd year using chrono and hyperlink kites, from 15mtr down to 5mtr,jakemoore wrote: ↑Sat Dec 26, 2020 4:05 amLofty jumps with soft landings. Wanting a simplified quiver. Easier to travel. No pump maintenance.
if i was only ttiping would I buy a big foil kite? knowing how good they are at light wind performance?
some have and I do admire their efforts to get out in conditions that really do suit foil boards, but they do get out, and do get some jumping in, going upwind is a different story, maybe they would better to get a massive ttip with the little retractable massive center skeg or blade,as they do get upwind quite well.
but then why don't these guys just go all the way and get a hydrofoil, being different has to be admired up to a point, but then when the two sports are seen together on the same patch of water in the same conditions then many questions do come into clear view.
but each to their own, and many of these guys do love the challenge and being different, and I do love watching them, pinwheeling a 18mtr foil kite to not drop off the plane on a ttip and turn tack the other way at speed is dam impressive to watch.
