Re: Foil Kite tuning tips

Very useful post and compilation of links! Thanks!

foilholio and kitexpert, you both seem to have lots of free time. Rather than arguing with each other, would each of you please take the time to write up a fool-proof, step by step and complete foil kite tuning/troubleshooting tutorial?

Re: Reducing Core XR3 12 bar pressure

Yes, modifying the front bridle to move the front tow point ( the point at which the front flying line is attached ) slightly aft and closer to the CE or centre of effort ( the point on a sail at which application of the whole propelling force of the wind would produce an effect identical with that...

Re: tapping threads into epoxy?

Thanks guys! I will drill it all the way and put a washer and a stainless kite board insert on the top side then.

Re: Reducing Core XR3 12 bar pressure

It's a second hand kite. I tried an XR4, liked it a lot, and got this believing it was basically the same kite, but not really it seems... I tried it with a Core Bar, and another one with a low Y, but the bar did not make much of a difference on bar pressure . The back lines are already setup the wa...

Reducing Core XR3 12 bar pressure

Hi, I have a Core XR3 12m kite, the bar pressure of which I find too much. It's already setup to have the least amount of pressure, and front/back lines are equalised on the bar. It has a bridle like the image below. I wonder if there's any mod to make the bar pressure lighter. As light as an 11m ed...

tapping threads into epoxy?

Hi, I am converting an old mutant board (RRD toxic wave) to a foilboard. I drilled small holes the board, and using an allen wrench and a drill removed foam from underneath the skin, and filled the holes with epoxy. I was thinking of attaching the foil by drilling the epoxy infill all the way and pu...

Re: Chrono V1 tip tucking

Yes, indeed extending Z by 3 more centimeters solved the tip tuck issue (on top of the 4cm done with the long mixer test), and the kite flew perfectly until one day it exploded mid air and split into three pieces:( Wind was about 17 knots and my friend was submerged in the water after a kiteloop gon...

Re: iwatch setting question

Many apps out there. Strava and Waterspeed are the ones I use the most. I used to use Xensr Sessions, but not anymore after finding out how inaccurate it is. Built in activity tracker is very basic, does not even have the maximum speed reading... North PIQ app, even without the PIQ can be used to tr...

Re: Apple Watch 3 Apps

I have Xensr sessions on my watch and use it to track my jumps. The other day I rode a friends board with a North PIQ, and to my disappointment, I found the Xensr app reports about %30-40 less jump height.

Re: Chrono V1 tip tucking

Hi Horst, Thanks for your quick and prompt response. So, if I got you right, tip tucking is not possible to solve at mixer level? Elongating AR2 seems to be the easier way. Since it's not my own kite, I'd prefer to get it flying reasonably well with the least effort possible. How many centimeters do...
