[ksurf] Quadrifoil kite impression needed
I came accross this kite - Quadrifoil XL
is there someone who surf with it , relauchabillity ?
what the impression of its performance ?
its price is some how cheap - whats the catch ?
- Hi TZ
The XL is a very good kite. I also have a 4.9 blade and they are about
the same. The XL seems to have a bit more power. They are great for
kitesurfing. The wind range is ~ 15 to 22 knots for a ~180 lb person.
You'll only drop it on the jumps until you learn how to steer the kite
during a jump. I think quadfifoil has one of the best constructed
kites on the market. Very sturdy with reinforced everything.
The kitesurfer model of the XL adds a bit more security, it has very
good water re-launch. Both of these kites perform about the same over
10 knots. I find that below 10 knots the kitesurfer model is a bit
So if you just plan to do kitesurfing you may want to spend the few
extra $$ on the kitesurfer model. If you plan on buggying and flying
on land alot as well as kitesurfing the regular XL may be the most
