Already has ....

wind down here is utter horse crap and only 35km south of safety bay. Estuary cock blocks the sea breeze.

But it doesn't matter anymore.

Hey Thanks Mick & Livit
for the heads up in regards to the axis new wave model in KBs photo which is strengthened with solid timber reinforcing.
Great boards the Axis new wave.
Would have made my newer model even more versatile .
Thanks


Sorry Leigh don't check here too often, luckily these guys know more about the history of my board than I do

Hi Guys is there anyone in Gold Coast with Axis foil? I would really like to try it before buying Beer on me =) I have LF Rocket v2 and LF Happy but not really happy with them after I tried Lift Carbon foil 170... Feels like Rocket and Happy are kinda grinding through the water, looking at the shape of Axis I think it should be very smooth: similar to Lift foil. Cheers Alex

+1 on the Axis love. I had a full carbon race foil with a learner front wing, at the time I thought it was a good foil but for me it was nearly impossible to learn on. Sold that and a year or two later I bought Toppleover's old foil, put the 450mm mast on, and from day one I was up and foiling. Such a stable, easy design to ride.





This is the old model Axis foil by the way, great set up still and we have a few left with 3 mast options for $995 at the moment.

The new Axis K Series is a big step up from this Carbon front wings, stiffer, lighter masts, Fuselage is a piece of art and all bolts together beautifully.

Pretty much did the same session today but forgot to hit record on the old GPS , gives you an idea tho not a big session but I cannot believe how easy shooting upwind is on these things then the fun flying back downwind trying to keep the big wing from breaching flying from swell to swell

How do you like the Uno for high wind foiling?

It was the first time I used it, I was actually on a demo. I was pretty happy, I mean It got me upwind from secret harbour to singleton and coming back down wind I didn't really need to touch it, the kite just hung in the sky. Coming down wind riding the swell all you really want is a kite to stay in the air with minimal input as your going from swell to swell. I had one moment where I was a bit worried but I literally had the kite sitting at 10 o'clock riding straight at it down wind, hit a big lump of swell and gained a heap of speed and flew straight under the kite it went from 10 to 12, started falling I was still burning speed riding straight downwind at it as it went to the other side of the window to 3 o'clock on the upwind side of me and I just pulled him back up to 12 and kept going no worries . Was pretty good almost impossible to outrun/stall, but the kite is super fast so you need to be ready for it, I just feathered the kite with light inputs as I was concentrating on the swell and waves.

The Uno is a fun little kite, one I pull out when it gets in the mid 20 knots. I am about 80 kilos. A friend from down the coast rides his Uno at about the 18 knot mark and he is about 68 kilos. I really enjoy the zippiness of that kite in higher winds. I would not recommend it for those who are not at the smooth transition stage, everything happens quite fast. I also use my standard 50cm bar with 25 mt lines.
