Re: jerry of the day

It's a funny sport...

Literally an accident can end up in laughs or tears.

Re: Front Roll Kiteloop Progession

some of the hardest whippings I have had are from front roll kiteloops. I refuse to call them Boogie loops! :P it's such a committing move which when you get it right is such a nice landing and when you get it wrong you're screwed and it hurts. 10m weather and under for me. If you're over rotating, ...

Re: Sea conditions you'd give up foiling and oppt TT or surfboard

over 20 knots I don't normally bother as the sea state gets nasty where I live.

We don't have any waves at all so that's not an issue.

Re: no Pain no Gain: How not to kiteloop, when low is too low.

You almost start looping the kite as you're getting to the apex of the jump. do it too early and you may get too much downwind pull and that can stall the kite and you don't want that happening. Too late and you won't really get the pull.

Re: Spotz 4 Shark

The wind totally screwed me so I didn't have much time at all on the foil. What I have worked out is; 1. tacking is easier than the Spotz 2- the shark seems to glide easier which I guess is down to the more glider-esq wing. 2. the foil is very stiff 3. no noise when riding though I didn't have a cha...

Re: Spotz 4 Shark

So I got mine. First impressions of the main differences. The mast is MUCH heavier, it's certainly solid carbon and has a lot more surface area than the Spotz2; http://i.imgur.com/2P5wi32l.jpg The front and rear wings are higher aspect and have a better finish compared to the Spots2; http://i.imgur....

Re: slingshot oh shit handles

From reading this and from a Slingshot bar user, I can see actually that it's a pointless addition unless you don't trust your QR. I have used it a few times when I was a storm and ready to get rid of the lot... Interesting that I should have relied on the built in safety! 15+ years in the game and ...
