Re: Best place to learn to foil on East Coast

I hit manatee in Crack Park, Dolphin at 520 Slick,Tarpon in the ocean and other numerous unidentified creatures. Get used to it. You will still freak out every single time it happens.....

Re: 2:1 Bar for A15 15m?

Allright I am going to start with baby steps. What does Z shortening do? It seems counterintuitive if you want more depower/turning speed?

Re: 2:1 Bar for A15 15m?

Foilhoolio. I tried to read through the thread about A15 mods. O man, I am intimidated by all the minutia. It seems like a lot could go wrong....Also there is not a one specific mod that is presented like a cookbook recipe for newbie like me. Bar route seems to be an easy way out. at least for now.

Longer throw on depower line should help to deepen depower. Is this valid solution. Also I wanted to ask you about Flysurfer race bar. It has 4:1...

2:1 Bar for A15 15m?

I am in the process of getting to know my new A15. Could anybody of current users post their bar pictures for this kite, please? I am interested in mods that would help to depower better and turn kite faster :D
Looks like I need to build something....
