Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I understand that completely - and I commend you. That's how the state of the art moves forward. I've done that with many things myself. But in my opinion there's a spectrum between 100% novelty and outright copies. Being inspired by something and choosing to improve it, even very significantly, fa...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

What I am saying is: If I had never seen a Carafino, I would not have gotten into foiling back then. If the Carafino was actually a really well developed product, we would have never gotten into building one ourselves. However we saw a lot of things wrong with it and other Hydrofoils at the time (m...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

That being said, there's a continuum between copying and developing something that's 100% novel. Almost no one ever creates something that's 100% novel. So the question is - how much do you have to change something for it not to be "bad"? I agree 100%. Its a hard discussion. They way I see it...the...

Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

I stand corrected and you have certainly clarified, beyond any doubt, your postion. My position is to not necessarily pass judgment on the OP's level of honesty. I simply will say which scenario is more likely. I will not pass judgement on someone with a simple picture, lest that picture includes t...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Hi Everyone, I actually just tested this one yesterday. A friend of mine brought it. So here is a short review: Build Quality: Horrible. These are not full carbon. The mast and Fuselage are G10 wrapped in 1 layer of 300g Fibreglass and a 80g Carbon layer on the surface for show. On the mast the Car...

I don't care about exact measurements I just want a video that really gives justice to how high these jumps are, I don't care if it's 20 meters or 30 meters,
I agree 100%. Its a high jump. I think that should be about it when it comes to claims.

Re: Shoulder Replacement

I'm 60 years old and destined for a shoulder replacement in one month. I love to kite and hope to continue. Pretty freaked out. Anyone out there had a full shoulder replacement and continued to kite? Or does anyone know of anyone who came back to kiting after a shoulder replacement? Thanks. I can't...
