Re: Stabilizer angle

Inversely the less aoa (I cant think like Peters backwards pedantic logic) you have on the rear wing the less stable the foil becomes but more man...

Re: Downlooping the kite during toeside to heel side carve

hmmmm. I probably prefer the toe to heal down loop. Maybe practice undergunned with a smaller kite so you can loop anywhere and any time In the window. Then throw the loop earlier and later to get the timing right. If loosing line tension you can always through a double loop or front loop/back loop ...

Re: Riding without sunglasses
