Re: “Light” wind tubes

I recently got a LF WOW 10m V3, but it drops out of the sky at 9kn, backstalls like hell at 10kn, and won’t water relaunch consistently until at least 11kn. I really don’t want to make that mistake again. all kites I have flown would stay up at 9kts (I think the threshold for tubes is 6-7kts, with ...

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

Can also go directly to Matt Wheeler(Facebook group 'wheeler wings') and get one of his other larger wings to play in waves. I have a hammerhead 24" and it rides great, very smooth and low stall speed.

Re: Who is this guy? Video from 2002.

Andy Hurdman did them a lot and called them blind rewind. Shame the old bestboarding website form the Shannon and Alex shogren days is gone as are used to be so many great videos of him riding, one of the smoothest guys around.

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

5 strutted new elements look like kahoonas to me and early generation ones I had made nice power, drifted well, and were good jumpers just a little heavy on the bar pressure. Felix seems not to be a foiler so shame about weight addition. Guess new heliums might be answer.

Re: 2017 Lift Foils

Had mine a few weeks and 4 sessions on it. Very happy with purchase so far. How do you like your 42" Dwarfcraft? How does it ride compared to lager board? Any regrets about it or anything exciting? Take it with a grain of salt that I'm at the beginning intermediate stage and still no foiling jibes ...

Re: 2017 Lift Foils

I recently got a130inch redesigned 2017 lift foil. Rides great and nice construction. I'm a big boy so went with larger wings. Works for me cruising around(no interest in racing) and good low speed lift and fun in some small swell I tried recently. Positive is wings/fuselage is one piece = stronger...
