Re: New Mitu board size and construction

The Mitu is an easier and more forgiving board to ride. Signature has thinner rails, less volume under the front foot and needs to be ridden faster. It really shines on bigger faster waves. The Mitu accelerates faster and goes upwind slightly better. BTW, I only ride the Signature in quad configurat...

Re: New Mitu board size and construction

Haven't ridden the 2018 carbon mitu but owned the carbon 2017 model which was ok even in chop on the knees. The 2018 model also has carbon stringers and unlike the 2017model not dual but single density pads, probably to save weight. Still should be good, I am now riding the 2018 carbon Signature and...

Re: New Mitu board size and construction

When you go light, you can never go back to a heavier board and lightness is key for strapless freestyle.

Re: New Mitu board size and construction

5'8'' for sure, I am 145 and ride the 5'6'' carbon. For plain wave riding standard construction is very good and softer than the carbon construction especially in chop, carbon construction is worth getting if you also want to do some freestyle because it is superlight!

Re: Line strength for hydrofoiling ?

The short version is: If you dont jump nor race or ride extremely powered in light wind, it does not make sense to buy new lines for a bar with same thickness/strength as for your TT/Waveboard bars, would be stupid as I see it. Line lengths are different anyways (in marginal winds) meaning not the ...

Re: Nailed some tacks today, feels great!

I have been kitesurfing since 1999, went through the big air period, then the unhooked dangle era, now doing a lot of strapless wave/freestyle, have been hydrofoiling for 13 years now. When I started learning the foiling tack I could already tack a surfboard in my sleep and no other transition has t...

Re: Bracuru Hover board - Excellent !

Completely understand the extra grip provided by the catamaran shape on waterstarts, the difference is noticeable even between a flat shaped board with hard rails and one with rails heavily bevelled.

Re: Nailed some tacks today, feels great!

Went through the same process but strapless, attempting over 50 tacks per session but it was all worth it. I presently have a 90% success rate and what an amazing feeling flying through when you get it all right. Agree on keeping the weight forward and levelling the board before the foot change ( = ...
