Re: Boosting higher...what's made the biggest difference for you ?

Going out maxed to the crackers on a 10m Edge in 30-35 knots of wind and praying for the bigger gusts. Super fast sending of the kite and edging like a mofo!

Re: Mental Preparation for Big Tricks

for me a lot of visualisation and then when I go for it I normally surprise myself and as I leave the water I go "lets go!"

It's how I learnt big loops.

Re: Foiler's keep your helmets on!

Yeah this is a bit of an odd thread. The title is wrong as has been stated... It isn't clear how the rider got the injury they sustained as head first into deep water would have been fine as far as can imagine. he is a little more than 5m up and even with the kite pulling him he wasn't going to hit ...

How much would you happily pay for a foil board

If you were to buy a board, what would you consider a fair price?

For a raceboard it would be more but for a freeride board it would be less...

What's your number?

Re: Kite/Megaloop Ozone Edge

Well this will be fun to see edge enthusiasts smash themselves to pieces.. Please post your megaloop carnage videos and win a prize :cool2: I looped the V7 a few times, then stopped as each time I ended up with a forced enema. The V9 is a totally different kite. TOTALLY. It loops much more like a C...

Re: Landing on the board edge with my shins. Ouch!

heh, It's one of the most savage sports to learn. my first time out I did a full scorpion with both feet in the straps. I fell backwards and the foil and board flipped away from me.
