Re: North Rebel 2018

Relaunch: Today I saw somebody riding a red 2018 Rebel (with 4 lines) near the Ellenbogen parking lot, north Sylt, Germany. Conditions around noon were crappy, very light and lots of kites were dropping out of the sky. It seemed like relaunching a 4 line Rebel is quite a bit more difficult (no way t...

Any Takoon Icon 2017 reviews?

Are there any English reviews about the 2017 Takoon Icon? And for those that actually own the board: How's this FLAX BIOTEK (linen) construction holding up? https://takoon-family.com/en/shop/boards/icon-surf-kite-board/ There's an Italian Youtube video created by somebody from prokitesurfroma.com. I...

What's the downside of a longer fuselage?

The successful Levitaz Bionic and Banga foils have a longer fuselage compared to other brands. A longer fuselage with a smaller rear wing can create the same torque (to lift the board tip up) but produces less drag than a foil with a shorter fuselage and a larger rear wing. And I would expect that t...

Re: San Fran race results

Does anyone know if/how all the races are downloadable??

Re: San Fran race results

Just watched a live race, JH's wipeout at full speed was pretty gnarly ! You mean the one at 1:31:48 in the last race? http://new.livestream.com/accounts/3511933/events/2983640 Must be frustrating for the other guys that Johnny crashes downwind, needs to body-drag upwind to get his board and still ...

Re: Now that's a megaloop!!!

Stunning video, thanks for sharing.

I haven't seen any other mega loop video yet where the kite is so far below the rider and the rider still manages to land smoothly.

Re: new aplication of material to build kites

Tyvek has been used for sails on sailboats, typically small sails. Stretch seems to be a problem and similar to Mylar it can't just be sewn like regular sail cloth (without taping).

Re: Kite Racing is out of Olympics! Windsurfing is back in

...If it would be Olympic kite looping or so, well that would be a different point ... at least kite racing works in 8-10mph. The racers seem to like like it so let them have fun. Probably somebody should organize a kite race series during or just before/after the olympics near Rio and kite racing ...
