Pansh vs cloud c5 13.5

Postby OOri » Sun Sep 09, 2018 10:04 am

Hi, im new hydrofoiler and im at the intersection of choosing between the c5 13.5 to pansh aurora v2/a15.
My goal is to surf at 6-12 knots with the kite but also to have fun with a fast responding kite to its size. Another fear that i have is the relaunch and self rescue. To summarize i would like help in choosing according to this parameters:
1. Wind range
2. Responding
3. Relaunch
4. Self rescue( 0 wind with 1km from shore)
Pansh kites vs cloud c5 13.5.
Thank you very much!!

My Pansh Aurora 12 mtr takes on water fairly quickly when given a swim, hence replacing it with a FS Soul 12 mtr. Can’t comment on the cloud light wind relaunch.

If you want fast response then that rules out foil kites in general. 1km from shore is marginally dangerous, a large foil could be dangerous, but a leak in a no strut could equally be a problem. Either is solved with some flotation, vest, board leash, something you inflate etc. A tube is much easier to pack down. I think foils have lower and quicker relaunch. I think foils have more range. A15 is my choice for surf but Cloud will be a better "Wave" kite. Below 10knots becomes increasingly difficult to surf. A lot depends on wave size and wind direction. With any off shore you can go as low as the kite can fly. Onshore 12knots is pushing it. Smaller waves you can ride in less wind.
