Re: F-one Breeze v2 - how does it compare to v1?

It was weighed by a german dealer with 2.9kg for 13m and 3.4kg for 15m. I‘m also riding a single strut kite in its 3rd generation and think there is a basic fault in developing them: they are targeted to TT riders as well as to foilers. Will never work. My Kite works really flutter free with TT. Bu...

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

I wonder why don't paragliders use inflatable wings?

Re: Alu mast (strut) with 3 bolts - standard?

Hi, Is the 3 bolts alu strut becoming a standard? Are many producers using the same profile or does it only look identical? Greetings, Jaros With hydrofoils ,there are 2 types of manufacturers. Those who develop and do there own research, and those who make stickers. The latest are more likely to u...

Re: Is directional more fun than door in LW?

XXL door and Sector will get you going at the same time but Sector will go upwind much better. Forget riding waves with either, their flat rocker line is designed for speed and early planning .

Re: Light Years Ahead - The Airush Ultra V2

Definitely a bonus in the smaller sizes for foiling then, imagine the weight difference if airsush didn't use 6 pulley blocks. Im liking the addition of the 10m. And what's the point of making a super light 6 or 8m? It takes at least 12k to get going with those sizes on a hydrofoil (20+ on a TT).

Re: OK to kite near Afrodite’s rock, Cyprus?

Stopped by Aphrodite’s rock a short while ago and it struck me as a magic place to kitefoil around. The beach was empty. There are few rocks that might be too close to surface and need be avoided, but otherwise it looked doable. No signs to prohibiting kiting or anything. I don’t like to create pro...
