Re: Helium 3

Re: Switch Element V6

Has anyone been out foiling on the 4 or 5m E6 & could share their thoughts - also if you could weigh your kite please (so I can compare to other 1 strut designs) ?

Re: Helium 3

I'm now seriously considering a 10m H3 to learn to foil on & light wind surf but already have an 8m (other brand), so 7m H3 is too close in size.

I have a lightly used C3 QR complete located in Australia, other parts available also.

Re: Helium 3

Hi Felix, what would the low end wind range be for an efficient foiler on a 10m H3 please. (Lightest wind you would foil with a 10)

Re: Helium 3

H3 sounds great but quite frankly I'm disappointed that Switch didn't keep their loyal customers updated on the H3 (even when asked/begged to do so). If I had known that the Element was becoming more of an allround kite (not for me) & the H3 was going to be the new wave/foil kite I would not have mo...

Re: Helium 3

10m H3 is 2.9kg, does anyone remember the weight of the 10m E5 please?
Also are there any pulleys on the H3??

For the record, I do not doubt that this clip is filmed in 8 knots of wind but with tidal assistance I can also ride my 10m E5 & surfboard in 8 knots + tidal assistance.

Appologies if I offended anyone & would love to see some footage of the H3 foiling in light wind (no tide lol).
