Wave Kite 4,6,8
Below 12kn the 8m tends to Fall down, and will Not Relaunch... But would be enough for hydrofoiling.
Got a 10meter Ultra:
stays Up stable 6-7kn...
Relaunches at 7kn in flat water
Gets me Up in the Foil at aprox 8kn....
Getting big at 12knots....
It has way more Power than my 8m Wave Kite..
Sooooooooooo different than my Wave kite.
But love the relaxed Feeling for me:
IT will Not Fall down!
It will Relaunch!!!!
Just bought a 8m ultra...hoping for more high end (plus 2-3knots Up to 14) , with maybe only loosing 1-2kn Low end....
The 10m works in Waves with a surfboard but is Not perfect, as it flys soooo far to the Edge of the windwindow.... But goes upwind Like hell ...
I think a UFO would Work much better in Waves, but never saw anyone, and not sure about going upwind with an UFo on a Surfboard in Low Winds.
Ahhh, and the Ultra was pretty cheap
But the 10 is a Session Saver.... After a Long Drive, discovering only 6-7 knots, is pretty ugly
And yes!! 5 Kites is ridiculous..... So hoping the 8 is enough.
This to me sounds like the perfect quiver for kitefoiling it’s kind of what I think I will end up with. Thing is though a have a 10m section 4/wave kite so might need to trade it in for a 10m airrush team and have a 8m and 6m section 4/5 when available. Hindsight is a beautiful thing.
