Re: more impressed with loops than boost height

But the biggest surprise is where I'm getting the height. Those mega scary out of control jumps don't seem to be my biggest. I go massive of a huge wobble of water, come crashing down and my heart is going a million beats a second, look down, 9.2m WTF?!?! People who don't actually measure don't act...

Re: Foil kite boosting technique

Same as a tube kite for me, I just don't send it as far back.

Re: Limit of height jumping

The highest jump I have heard about involved a fatal lofting in Portugal. Eye witnesses put the height of the jump which covered 500 m (1640 ft.) horizontally at around 100 m or close to 330 ft.. This was with a traditional C kite, newer kites in theory could go even higher with enough of the wrong...

Re: What of powered hydrofoiling

15m Sonic in 18-20 knots means you can go pretty high on the HF. I haven't mounted a woo to my HF yet but will do when it's a little warmer.

25-30 knots on a 9m sonic is pretty much the limit for me, it's so hard to control the speed and when you go down you go down really hard!

Re: foil kites vs inflatable racing kites for racing + foil boards vs race boards?

The real question: What the heck am I going to do with my 2012 naish Venturi race board? Bought it used to free ride in light wind. Never got the hang of it. Much narrower than modern race boards, so it always felt like it was about to break my ankles... put it on the wall. From memory it's a prett...

Re: Downwind with swell speed control.

So it appears there is only one answer? rig a kite so incredibly small you can bearly water start. If not you will not effectively be able to ride down wind down swell/wave without getting pulled off it? Or ride so powered up and go as deep downwind as you can and get used to going as fast as your ...
