Re: Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil?

When we put 9m2 kites on waveboards it's blowing 30 kn+.....we stay on our 17's often til 20 kn :lol: Weird, I tend to use as small a kite as possible when riding waves on my strapless board. So 9m is from about 17kts till mid twenties, then 7m till high twenties, and 5.5 from 30 onwards. With lots...

My Spitfire with XLW is silent at all speeds.
Same, didn't really notice much noise. I had more noise on the blue wing, and even more when I had a few scratches on the tips of that wing.

Re: Canard Foil

When I'm not so starved of wind that I can afford to waste some of it riding sub-optimal gear, I might take this one for a ride! Let's call it the Cabrinhanard, shall we? DO IT! I bet it will get up on foil at very low speeds. Good sup foil maybe With that big stab now producing lift, maybe it will...

Re: Where to find a cheap front line Y-split which allows one line to slide for safety?

I see that metal ring of the Kite Attitude bar wearing out the line pretty quickly, especially when you hit your quick release quite often or don't clean all the sand off Only time will tell, for sure, but being a ring, there is no sharp edge for the line to wear out much from it, probably less tha...

Re: Where to find a cheap front line Y-split which allows one line to slide for safety?

After using many systems over the years, I must admit that the solution from KiteAttitude is probably the neatest, lightest, simplest and most likely cheapest option.

I'd happily hit a stingray as revenge for what that f*cker did to my foot during my stopover foil session in Venice Beach. Nothing like a shot of venom before a 12hr flight...

If it is the big ones like these or similar, they cost almost 100 euro :o
They're everywhere, I'm sure no one in your neighborhood will notice a missing chunk or two!

Re: Wear and tear on Zeeko Foil/Board/NSI foothooks

Talking about DIY, I have seen Sir Franz Olry craft a couple of foot hooks out of the edge of a rubbish bin, the bits by the handles, and they looked absolutely mint! Strong, stiff and light. I wish I took a picture. What kind of rubbish bin are we talking about? Not completely sure. Saw the end pr...
