Re: I suck at jybes

When I say gybe I mean switching feet and changing direction. Not simply carving heal to toe on my good side (which happens to be goofy). I can carve to toeside and back again until the cows come home. Ah, gotcha. I know in sailing gybe and tack is the change of direction, but is windsurfing includ...

Re: Duty to warn

Several years ago I was riding at a crowded site being fully lit on a 12m Waroo on a short narrow board. I had come in and landed and when packing up I saw this guy pumping up a 20m "C" kite. I went over and asked him about his experience. He said this was his first time kiting, no lessons, no frie...

Re: I suck at jybes

Plummet -apart from the footswitch, can you do the carve 180 part up on the foil ? If not, learning the foiling carve (to and from toeside) that would the next step. Once you have that part nailed then it's just a matter of bringing in the "flying foot switch" to complete the whole manouvre "flying...

Re: Wave oriented hydrofoil

OK - good tip but the high AR is much, much less manoeuvrable than low AR . I think it's the width of the high AR wings that "ruins" agility--rolling resistance isn't the right phrase, but their resistance to rolling :D slows down the edge to edge response. Very noticeable going from LF to SS, for ...

Re: Wave oriented hydrofoil

How do you find the flex of the brm paipo and shinnster (or do you have the carbon plate version)? I built a diy carbon plate for my first generation shinnster that works pretty well, though I'd like it just a touch stiffer. I have the spitfire which I like a lot but I'm tempted to either build a l...
