Re: Filling out Quiver--light wind

Something cheap and Interesting for you to try - add between 10-20m of extra line length to your existing kite and see how much that improves your low end. I regularly ride a 5m kite now with 3 bars depending on wind - under 14 knots 36m lines, 15-25 kts with 27m and then 21 M after that. With a hyd...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

It’s roughly 3 months since the Spitfire released and it seems the excitement has died down. Curious to hear the thoughts of those who have invested in one. Is it the new design that is going to change everything? Or is it just another interesting variation, something a little different to add to a...

Re: Inflato-foils

How about a standard race foil with a thin inflated leading inside it. Just enough inflated structure to keep the LE shape tip to tip when the lines go slack. No more tip tuck or wineglassing. Probably a lot better launch and relaunch. I asked Flysurfer this question when I met Armin at a conferenc...

Re: I suck at jybes

Plummet -apart from the footswitch, can you do the carve 180 part up on the foil ? If not, learning the foiling carve (to and from toeside) that would the next step. Once you have that part nailed then it's just a matter of bringing in the "flying foot switch" to complete the whole manouvre "flying"...

Re: Canard Foil

I don't really agree with some of the comments above. Ive been foiling just over 2 years and have moved away from carbon foils back to Aluminimum as they offer me sufficient performance for my skill level and are significantly cheaper to buy and repair. I am mostly into free riding altqhough I did r...

Re: New mobile game 'Kiteboard Hero' offers realistic kite action

Enjoying it so far but I WISH I could swap the kite control to the right side (thumb). That's my only complaint as a right hander

Re: Sliding spreader bar , what do you think ?

Love love love it ! I rIde a 3 season old Dynabar setup with a stainless steel slider bar (not rope) and custom brass roller on the hook - it will never wear out ! I find this essential for freeride and toeside foiling. I only use a seat harness and it's the only way I get enough freedom and movemen...

Re: Mike's labs foil

And China proved ML is not invincible - Banga was faster in light winds. So you would have to concede there is not just 1 dominant brand for all riders in all conditions.
.. even at this time. Can't wait for Mexico !

Re: Mike's labs foil

I saw a couple of Mikes Lab foils in perth when the HPT was in town and they were pretty amazing - Nico and Rikki's. Quite a thing of beauty and very intricate looking, like the pics above. Rikki told me they never touch the mast to avoid the oil on their fingerprints affecting the performance, and ...
