Re: I like riding with a safety leash because it makes me feel safe, does anyone else admit that?

Hey, LetsFly. This thread has generated a wide range of reactions. That might be because the meaning of "safety leash" isn't clear. It could be a board leash, or it could be a kite leash. So, in an effort to salvage the thread, here's a response that distinguishes the two. Board leash: I have never...

Re: Best bankrupt?

Do we think the customer service rep decided to flip customers off because he didn't like them and he liked being shouted at on the phone? I dunno, I know brand managers who like to abuse customers on the forums, then on Facebook, then challenge them to ring him up, then post up on the forums again...

Re: I like riding hydrofoil for 15 minutes then got bored anyone else admit that?

A poor carpenter always blames his tools. Depends more on how you ride than what you ride. If you choose to ride in a way that bores you, thats not the foil. Novice foilers are pretty restricted in how they can ride. Takes a little vision to see the possibilities and a little dedication to develop ...

Re: Back footstrap position

Yes. You'll adapt then you'll wonder why you waited so long.

I hate not having positive response to back foot pressure, and having to rely on "raising" the front foot to raise the nose. And I like wide stance, so take it for what it's worth...

Re: Protection against the sun

Well, am glad you have decided what has been finalized about all these 'questions' and is no longer up for debate. The 'real' science' has spoken and , of course, will never be open to re-assessment again so why talk about it. All I was asking was Have there been any well done long term studies pub...

Re: Who has ridden the LF low aspect wings and switched to mid aspect wings?

I started with Foil Fish then bought a HoverGlide, and have ridden an Access 5.0. HG likes to cruise at a higher speed. Low speed riding is possible but its stall is more aggressively nose up and slightly higher speed than the LF. It's also more work to go edge to edge and really wants to go in a st...

Just like cell phones. Who knows if they rays are damaging or not.
Oh I know right! Cellphones are microwave transceivers and you put it right up to your head! And you cook your food in a microwave oven! OMG that must mean we're microwaving our brains! :lol:

Who knows? Science, that's who.
