There is a video of a child mostly dragging racestar plus along the beach on one tip while the background band sings that they are looking for some hoes and that they dont talk to you if you dont do jagerbombs.

Racestar looks handsome and at the end even does a turn and now i want to try this kite.

Interesting - I have tried to search for hydrofoil videos with Born RS and RS+ kites, but not really found anything.

Can someone lead us to these?

How do they drift and work for waves, how do they turn?
Are they "noise" free, no flapping?

Apparently loads of peak power, so interesting in light wind also.

Not much info around :roll:

Indeed, I tried too.

It looks awesome concept and it's generally well liked on forums (there are some discussion on Power kite forum http://www.powerkiteforum.com/). Also, I really like how it looks. Born's Nasa Star 4 I have is very high quality and flies well.

I'm thinking of buying a small SS kite. The short list is the Peak, RS or RS+. I would prefer Born to support a small company, out of curiosity and to get a higher Peak power. But there isn't much information or comparisons anywhere, which is a bit worrying.

I think I have seen two kiteboarding videos with RS, here is one I found now:
