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).

I get it now, we just dont use the term "tidal assistance" here in Denmark, but found out what you mean. :D

What is the H3 relaunch like? Will it relaunch <=10kn
A video showing deep water relaunch in light wind will be great :idea:

The Helium 3 looks a lot like the latest Nitro with less struts and less aggressive tipped ends. I'm currently flying a 14 and 18m Cabrinha Velocity for light wind kiting, but the bar pressure has gotten old over the years. I have been contemplating a switch to the Cabrinha Contra, but this kite is something I am definitely going to consider.

It’s interesting you said it looks like the latest Nitro. I still fly my Nitro V2 once in a while and thought the H3 looks a lot like that with 2 less struts. Still interested to see what the H3 is like. Hope it can live up to the H2 in relaunch.

Eager to hear what generic users like & dislike about the H3. I am enjoying my E6's so much I hate to consider other models but ...... then......

I will get the H3 soon, riding the Element6 now but getting me a big a** H3 (16m) for does light winds sommer sessions. Going from the H2 witch was perfect to use when others are going home due to no wind. :D
