Plummet has the convenience of having nuking wind all the time, so his opinion is very different from many people's where we have to have gear to suit a variety of conditions. haha,,, i wish i had nuking winds all the time! i wouldnt have built a hydrofoil if that were true. But i do get my fair sh...

I've only kited raglan in the depths of winter when its blowing 40 bastards! at that time its not crowded at all!... But a crowd in rural nz is 20-30 kites over a 2km long beach.

Re: choosing twin tip SIZE you give more importance to your weight or how much you are overpowered or underpowered?

No. Size is a function of the board specifications. You cant purchase on size Or weight alone. You need to consider the style and type of board. The features than you want. Do you have choppy or flat water? do you like riding in waves? to you want upwind performance? do you want smooth through chop?...

Re: fuselage fabrication

Ok thanks. That's 60E for 3 tubes. If I go to 2 tubes I get down to about 40E. My plan was to 3d print a spacer between the cylinder fuse and the aluminum mast. Both surfaces are accurate so easy to do. And I could just embed some stainless inserts into the filked carbon tube and screw the wings to...

Then what features do you want? what water conditions do you have? what wind conditions do you have? Once you assemble these questions you can then begin to consider what type of board you w...

Re: Your support to kitesurfing innovations

I've been using the Jay XTC harness Since march last year, Its really good for foiling and wave riding. I added a low friction ring which made it smoooooooth. After a year and many sessions the rope has very little wear. As good as the harness is for foil and wave riding (particularly toeside) its f...
