  • Alpinefoil at Rhodos Prasonisi (Greece) 2014 Kitefoil Surfboard

    Back Daniel MEIER (Kitefoileur Switzerland):

    Holidays in Greece kite with Alpinefoil system.

    Alpinefoil bags and small weight of all Alpinefoil is perfect for a holiday by plane.

    At Rhodes, Greece we had conditions with waves, flat water, chop and swell party. The wind was weak to strong 25-30 to 8-10 knots. Most Kn 20.

    I used surfboard with wing catalyst ozone 8 m² and 10 m² in conditions of great waves. I had a lot of fun! Everything is possible and very easy to navigate. A surfboard magnificent in which you can expect pure pleasure!

    It has been demonstrated that Alpinefoil can be used anywhere without any problems. I had a lot of fun in all conditions and I learned a lot.


    I thank the team for Alpinefoil the very good work and development.

    These are my best holiday kite !

  • Surfkite board Wave CX-V6 / Return Christophe MARIN

    Here is a small return for a customer on board Wave CX-V6 mode Surfkite!

    Navigation foil that day at the lake and passing mode surfkite Wave board with CX-mounted V6 ... with FCS fins. Large banana, super session of 2 h, 10 m2, this board is really nice to surf, allows tight jibes and short, ultre-tolerant change of foot (as in foil fashion way), large cap backwards foot level rear fins, good glide, in short I LOVED! The volume does help pass soft lake Monteynard, I wanted to test before joining Marc in Quiberon next week for Houat Wing's, Perfect I would not take the foil and the AF board! No additional surfing.

I even go a little more to see the different points of the Wild Coast. I am an express return six minutes to reach my starting point when I'm playing in small waves raised by the wind. The sea is green, the sky is blue, I want to take some pictures of the foil in nav.
