Re: Any experience with high load jumping using a "kite foil box"

The KF Box and the Tuttle box and the Pro Box all are designed to take most of the forces on the sides and front/back edges of the box. The screws used to hold them in place shouldn't normally see much load. In fact Alpine used only one screw, (although now they have gone to two screws). The plate s...

Re: Mast Length for Boosting

Jumping is a lot of fun with a foil and not difficult. Whenever I think I should go back to strapless riding again I am reminded that you can't jump very well without straps so I stick with them.

Re: 20 Years of Kiting!

Congratulations Rick. I started a bit later in 1999 with a Wipika 5.0 classic (2 lines) and Timpone board. Fun times. :D

Who would have thought we'd be hydrofoiling now. :o

Thanks for all the safety work you've done over the years Rick.

Monaco’s Maxime Nocher surged to the head of the order at the KiteFoil World Series’ opening act in China, taking four wins from seven on the competition’s penultimate day that was packed with drama that proved costly for his rivals. But the multiple world champion was a model of searingly-quick con...
