Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

This brilliant comment was posted on WUWT:
"One thing for certain if the Global Warmunists get their way, there will be no toilet paper, even though they are promising free $hit."

Re: Specific grease for Hydrofoil

I suggest that anything that keeps water out of the threads would work. For example, you can lube the bolts with petroleum jelly; in fact, the supplied with foil grease looks like trivial Vaseline. For even more substantial water isolation one can use pipe cement. Obviously, pipe sealant is somethin...

Re: Harness Position

Would be great though if manufacturers made a "kidney" harness. sits between a seat and waist harness. Has the support of seat but the maneuverability of a waist. Dakine Chameleon harness. Admittedly, it is more restraining than waist (when used with seat appendix), but it is better than seat harne...

Re: Moses 2019

carbon fuselage will make bigger wings float. Its not good. I'll be blunt here: if various foil parts have so much difference in buoyancy, then it is sloppily engineered product. The ideal carbon foil for kitesurfing should have density slightly above that of the water, so that the rig would slowly...

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

Disassembling aluminum foil once per every 10 sessions or so is OK. I didn't bother during the first 20 sessions; consequently, the fuse become inseparable from the mast. Keep in mind, that during first assembly I sprayed insulation foam into the threads, which is not exactly a lube. Still, had spla...

Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

I remember showing up at Crissy Field Nov 2015 to discover that everybody was on foil. Nobody was even on directional, while I was the only dude with TT. Next year, seen the foiler population steadily growing to significant proportion in two other popular Bay Area places, firmly imprinted in my mind...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

What is the state of the art chicken loop in the industry today? Small chicken loop (North), fireball (Cabrinha)? I see more half of kiters foiling in 3 out of 4 locale spots I visit who I assume never disconnect, so why insist on disconnecting the kite with this ancient and awkward connection metho...

Re: Holes in aluminum mast

I've seen alloy fuselage bent as well fyi I doubt it. First of all, it is all about the leverage: it is easy to bend a bar when you have 95 cm of leverage -- the full sized mast. It is harder to bend 65 cm one, but as Gunnar demonstrated, still quite possible. Compare it to fuselage, you have perha...

Re: Best bankrupt?

A year ago the signs of death were more visible, as they were clearing kites at ebay as low as $350. I think they are pioneering new path once again with dramatically lowered cost, keeping only essentials: manufacturing and website. Clearly, you as customer expect no support, but can you complain fo...

Re: Holes in aluminum mast

Masts are hollow, therefore it is not much weight savings that you'll get there. For comparison, fuselages of at least three vendors: Can Lf asd SS are designed sloppily -- they are just solid rectangular bars of aluminum. The foil designers were probably unaware of the fact that the tail section of...
