Wanted 6m, 7m, or 8m foil kite for snow

Postby Steve271 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 1:20 pm

Anyone upgrading their winter gear?
Would like to buy something inexpensive with bar for higher wind snow days, to complement our HQ4 11m Apex
Simple depower foil with bar. Ideally less than 5 years old.
Not looking for anything tricky to fly until we get better with flying a foil
Thanks for looking
Steve

I know Stafford has a 7m Flysurfer Soul.

He's had it less than 1 year. I have a 12m and really love it. However, do note that it doesn't have a 5th line. So if you are kiting solo, it takes some experience to self-land in 20 knots as the thing just wants to fly and it can be very tricky to bring down all by yourself. However, with two people, it's easier to land than a tube kite. My wife lands my 12m all day long in 20 knots. If you think you are going to use it solo quite a bit, I'd look elsewhere...find something with a fifth line.

Sorry, I have no foils for sale right now, but I might add to Powerman's comment that if you can get a brakeline setup like Ozone has it would also be very helpful, especially if you do not have a 5th line.

Thx guys,
Appreciate the advice- Myself and my son will be snow kiting together.
Not really ready to step up to a Soul until we are certain about our commitment to foil kites.
I posted the the wanted ad on iKitesurf and someone kindly sold me a HQ matrix 2, so I’m good now :)
