Re: Upgrading my Double Agent

I did drill two extra holes at the back to bolt a Zeeko (B&W, Carver, then Spitfire) foil on it. Big cup washers and 8mm bolts, washers and hex nuts and it was great. That board is nice low volume, bomb proof, and still reasonably usable on its own without a foil. Good option for travelling. Could b...

Re: Hydrofoiling France between Montpellier and Nice, best place?

That's quite a good time to visit there, as the bulk of the tourist and swimmers will be gone. June to September is honestly a pain with so many restrictions in force, struggle to park, struggle to launch, struggle to use the few authorized channels to get at the back... Kind of spoils the fun a lit...

Re: comparison one strut kites

Can't really compare with other brands or models, but I'm pretty happy with the Zeeko Notus Air 12m. Seems to hang in the air pretty well in the light stuff and is pretty nimble and precise to fly. I had a 12m Enduro v1 prior to that, and while I enjoyed it too, the Notus Air seems to fit the bill b...

Re: Jumping (and landing) technique

Not that much experience as usually strapless (...) Also riding strapless, but I don't let that deter me from getting high! Usually a few times in the session, I'll go for it, and just jump and enjoy the view from up there, sometimes upside down. Gentle redirecting of the kite, mellow splash. The w...

Re: foil skills improve my TTip riding, wow!

I guess all the hours spent foiling teach you more about finesse, balance, power frugality, efficiency, (and...light wind relaunch) which are skills that are all somewhat transferable to other subdisciplines of kiting. Foiling also contributes to having some freakin' strong legs, which will help you...

Re: How do you transport (car) your HF?

I don't unbolt anything... Fits straight in. That's a Citroen C3, with the back seats folded down. SpitFire is good for transport as there is no protruding stab at the back. IMG_20180413_175225.jpg Otherwise, for most of my sessions, the car is out of the picture. Put wetsuit/harness/sunscreen, take...

Re: Nobile foil board nightmare!

Wow. You would think a company would offset the screws or make a key fit so you could not get it wrong. Especially knowing about it and putting together the write up caution. Rock On Since the profile of the mast is routed into the plate, that seems pretty unbelievable that someone could mount it b...

It sounds as if yet another international kite brand will be based in New Zealand.
In a nutshell: North is going South!

Re: Strappless or Strapped for Learning to Foil ??

(...) Straps tell you where you need to keep your feet. Straps also help with balance because you can direct the board by lifting your feet up also. (...) This assumes that the straps are in the correct position FOR YOU, which is a pretty strong assumption when you're learning and discovering the b...
