Re: Original Liquid Force to Learn

I learned on an original LF Foil Fish setup and thought it worked fine to learn on even with just the full mast. I just switched to the longer fuselage and I really wish I had that while I was learning. If you get the original LF setup, I would highly recommend starting with the longer fuselage. It ...

Re: WMFG pump quick fix

Do you have a way to seal it off without the gauge? I would rather not have the gauge or the golf ball, 😂. I'd imagine you could put a small bolt in with the same thread as the gauge. Obviously way better deliberate fixes. I just wanted to put this out there for someone to be able to fix their pump...

WMFG pump quick fix

Lost the pressure gauge on my WMFG pump while it was strapped to my kite bag riding a Seadoo. (It was a bumpy ride, so not bagging on the product). Anyway, while randomly looking around for something to fill the space, I discovered that a golf ball fits perfectly and allows the air to get through th...

Re: What is your most used oldest kite?

2012 Epic Infinity V2. This kite has been a battle tank for me and has the scares to prove it. Put in a new LE bladder a little over a year ago and its still going strong. It was my kite of choice for my local kiting 85 to 90% of the time, but now that I am foiling, I have been flying my 13 and 9 a ...

Re: Kiting alone offshore

Your topic title sounded like a terrible idea, but then reading your post, you obviously have a sweet setup and great contingency plans. Not sure that having someone on standby with a boat counts as kiting alone, but it is very cool to hear about somebody living the dream. Adrenalina is a very inter...

Re: Why suicide leash isn't a good idea

Should not they make leashes that break away or detach at twice the body weight? Who's body weight? Mine, yours or that twig of a bastard that weighs 90lbs soaking wet? All you need is just a few small extension loops, made out of ropes with different breaking strength. Hardly adds anything to the ...

Re: Strutless 12 or 15?

I think it's the 5/6 kt lulls that you get when you are out foiling that a 12m strut less or a foil kite will still stay in the air that's what gets you home without a swim. Exactly, my point was that eventhough smaller kites are useless because they can not pull you - they can be held flying in hu...

Re: Strutless 12 or 15?

Hmmm, would just point out one thing that many "newer" kiters might not know... The bigger the kite, the more difficult it is to keep them "flying" usually :roll: Yes, some of the biggest kites are designed lighter than the smaller ones, but normal kites that got only a slighter lower weight/surfac...

Re: Strutless 12 or 15?

Last year when I started foiling (yes, foil newb), I was just using my 13m as my lightwind kite. It worked great when there was steady wind, but as with most lightwind days, the lulls were dropping my kite in the drink, and then it was just luck of the draw as to whether I could get enough of a puff...
