Re: Recommendations for a January Foiling vacation

There are 4 resorts side by side in Santa Lucia, Cuba. They are all about the same. They each have kite launch areas. Just stay out of the swim zones.

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

I was on on my 12 m Concept'air Pulsion Light and Foilboard. In 4 kts I could keep the kite in the air while my kite buddie with a 15 m LEI was floating around in the water. Once it hit 8 kts I was away and foiling and the 15 m was still in the water. Once it hit 10 kts my friend was able to water l...

Nobile Foil Split Board 2018

Nobile introduced their first Hydrofoil Split Board in 2017. The only thing I would add to the board is the option for a single front strap or foot hook. I even e-mailed the company encouraging them to add it on in 2018. Unfortunately it looks like they didn't feel it was important. I ride the Nobil...

Re: Aruba in November

November is probably the least predictable month for wind in Aruba.

Re: take off speed

I think there is a difference in lift off speed for a kiter vs. a boat tow. In the above picture the rope is attached to a wakeboard tower and I need at least 18.5 mph to get up on the foil. When I am hydrofoiling with a kite. I can be up on the foil in 10 kts with a 14.5 m kite and can be going ver...
