Re: Foil Kite tuning tips

Thanks for explanation. I own speed 4 Lotus, specification say PA is changed from 70 to 85%. Thats teorically.

A friend owns Psycho 4. You can adjust profile and flying characteristics by opening and closing an internal zipper that affects internal inflation pressure.

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

I wouldn't talk that dismissively about greatest passion of my life be it foils and/or LEIs. It is sarcasm, Grigorib. Another point of view, to think out of the box about our "passions". A bar is nothing else but a stick with a hole in the middle. Or you can call it like Pete Cabrinha, coming from ...

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

The note written by Groesel is correct, but has its flats. One of them is the express intentionality to say that the singleskin profile of an inflatable kite generates more lift and less drag than (higher L/D ratio) than a double skin soft kite. But this is measured at angle of attack of 20 degrees!...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Mako vs Nomad Wave TT

Awesome. I've been drooling over nomad boards for years. I've never seen one in the flesh, But their construction techniques and design are one of the best out there. I'll never own a nomad board as I make my own boards. But the boards I make have some inspiration from nomad. Me too. I build my own...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Mako vs Nomad Wave TT

I’d check the Liquid Force hippy stick line as well. I’ve just had a Moon Patrol. Only had one short session so far but very impressed. Rides the same both ways and whilst I’m no expert at toeside, I did my best toeside ride and carve ever. Plus they are much cheaper than the Mako or Nomad. Well, y...

First was the Click bar.

Then came the Rebel in only 4 lines.

Now North will change name to South Kiteboarding.

Re: How small a foilboard can be for very light wind?

Thanks you very much Sergio for your picture and explanation. Thats what i needed.

This controversial point has solution. The bigger the hydrofoil wing, the smaller the board needed to waterstart in extra lightwind.

Great video.

Re: How small a foilboard can be for very light wind?

Thanks for your answer.

In my spot there is a discussion about if its possible or not to hydrofoil in 5 knots and a 80 x 37 cm flat wood board.

Huge difference from 140 x 40 with Lot of volume raceboard to 80 x 37 cm with no volume at all piece of wood, i guess
