Was easy to start on 8 knots? Do you feel that it has more lowed for foiling or foiling start? Maybe you can measure flat span lenght? Would be interesting to compare with Peak flat size of 8 or 4m. Than we can more understand difference concept.
Hi Peter, my gear and region is written in my profile, kiting from 2013, foiling already 4 year, foil gear Moses mainly 633 and also race wing but it use rare, very love use LEI kites, had double skin FS but feels very laggy comparing with LEI and much more complicated, don't have attraction at all to windsurfing and wing foiling, as don't like to have something hard in hands and have half wall before eyes, like to feel freedom which gives only kite (except of course downwind with wing), plus i like view of flying kite always very much. Foiling half in lakes and half in sea, in lakes as i see from practice usually winds are weak 7-11 knots usually, and of course a some days when 10-16 knots goes in these lakes but it is rare. Therefore what i experienced lot of times that my kite (usually 9m) falls down regarding suddently weak wind, it goes for 3-5-10 min and then again more powerfull dose of wind for some 20-30 min. So I need kite for 7-13(14-15) knots wind as main scale. What i see from options which are a live and fast turning and most lightest as possible kites it is as only Peak5 6m (or 5m) or Hysper2 6m (or maybe new Gin Marabou forthcoming version 2 or Hydrostar). Also i foiling in sea, but there is of course much more stable wind less problems with kites. One of the dilema is that i can get peak5 much cheaper than Hysper2, Hysper is better in main features i think, but used price of Hysper for sale later will be much lower and will be hard to sell it, peak5 you can always sell for good price but Peak has narrow wind range and not jumps at all, plus no water relaunch in lot of cases.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Fri Jan 21, 2022 10:59 pmI just browsed through a load of your posts - but I found noone where you write about which foils and kites you ride, or shared experiences with us?
They are maybe present, but not obvious for readers, lately, and you have kited for 9 years it seems (kite hydrofoil has existed for even longer).
Could you clarify your own gear and how it works, to the forum, as really difficult to understand what you seek, without knowing your hydrofoil level and kite and foilkite history and experience, and how you ride, which type of styles?
