Re: Hand Shaped Beauty

Be interested to know how the spoon bottom works It is called a... belly bottom. It smooths the touch downs as the energy is not transferred perpendicularly to the water like would do a flat surface bottom which receives a kick-back.. You can try this (not in your bathtub :-? obviously) : first hit...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Zero prestige and wingine.nl used to be good resources back in the day, also the foildesign Yahoo group. Then Gigi came with kitestuff.org :wink: Don't you think that those strutless kites have decreased the risk of sewing twisted kites, the no 1 reason why many people stopped sewing their own kite...

Re: universal adapter plate

That's a real issue. You have 2 problems: - your mast plate is carbon and not alu, so I'm not sure it can be drilled to smaller pattern. - the screw pattern in your board is smaller than the mast plate pattern which is new. So far, (Zeeko case 2015 and older see pict), the plate could be changed for...

Re: Remora Suction Foil Mount

You will notice on the video the bright orange foam deck pad so no need to paint anything. With the set ups I have used so far the Remora bobs on the surface so is easily spotted. I've noticed you were using a Zeeko Carbon mast weighting less than or around 3 kg. What is the limit? Is the buoyancy ...
