Re: Recommendations for lessons in Texas

If you really want to have the trainer then just get it and practice with it. In all honesty though it only teaches how to steer the kite. The key to learning to steer a kite is to treat it like a bike. It's push and pull not turning your arms. Once you get the hang of steering the trainer you wont ...

Re: Recommendations for lessons in Texas

Never heard of the the 361 but I don't go to Corpus all ways just drive to SPI. I would recommend going to the coast to take lessons. I live in Houston so I kite in Galveston Bay. Winds are going to better on the coast. Inland they will be a lot gustier which will make learning the basics harder. Th...

Re: Moses wings

Anyone know how far they space the front wing bolt holes on their wings. Making a foil with my 3d printer and would like to be able to test it with good wings that have been tested and are known to work. Might even make a mold from some other folks wings when I get a chance. 647/680 and 749 fuselag...

Re: Moses wings

When I go to replicate I'll do a 2 part mold using silicone rtv and a fiberglass mother mold. My cad skills are not good enough to reverse engineer it lol.

Exactly 2.75" between each of the 3 holes for the Onda.
Thanks. I went with 1.75" so I guess I can't use that wing.

Re: South Padre Island foiling

The shallow part depends on the tide. 1 to 2 ft but once you get out its about 4-6 foot. The whole center of the bay is pretty much 6 ft. There is a lot of sea weed in the bay however so that might be a problem anywhere it is growing up more. Most of it is pretty much on the seabed from my experienc...

Re: Punta Chame Panama

It was nice when I was there. The wind turned on everyday at 2pm. There were lots of stingrays I never got hit by one thankfully. All so there were a lot of jellyfish and I did hit by one of them. It's a low key spot not a party place. The one restaurant/bar is Nitro City that is where I stayed. I e...

Re: Shorten Line Length from 24m to 22m

The only way it should change the characteristics is if the shorter center lines pinch the leading edge in. That is a big if. As long as the lines are all the right length it will be fine. You would have to go super short for the lines to pull the outside of the kite in. As long as the kite maintain...

Re: Board width + boots size?

Just depends on how wide it is where the boots are. 41.5cm is the widest part of the board. Try them out and if you don't like them upgrade to a bigger board. Rule of thumb is 42cm wide boards for boots though. It's really only a problem because we all ways have to edge unlike wake boarding where yo...
