Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I used this one: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Loctite-8-fl-oz-Professional-Job-Size-Epoxy-1365736/100371835 I'd suggest that the glue strength is not that important, because it is not under any noticeable stress. When the foil is free in the water, the force down is 1 kg, tops. I squeezed some glass c...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I had 4 sessions on JNJ, and would agree that it is not the most beginner friendly setup. For now I'm back learning basics on Rocket foil. BTW, it seems that the other vendors on aliexpress got the message and the competition is now on! https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2017-new-Carbon-Fiber-Hydrofoil...

Re: Slingshot Foot Hook vs NSI Foot Hooker

Slingshot foot hook breaks where the holes are. Apparently, somebody on the design team thought that the more openings they cut, the better (or he just thoroughly enjoyed creating an artwork of numerous carvings in otherwise blunt piece of plastics). There is little else to complain: with little abu...

Re: Fastest turning wave/boost kite

For that matter, it would be interesting to know some numbers. For instance, how much faster turning are "wave" kites compared to "free ride" ones (for the same size). What is the difference in timing for 180 degree turn in seconds, are we talking 5%, 10% or 50%? Reviewers at thekiteboarder.com pion...

Re: Fastest turning wave/boost kite

Human brain is very unreliable at measuring anything. Unless you loop the two kites side by side like those guys at KiteFinder.com do, all those opinions that are about to fill in this thread are just that: speculation or shameless promotion not supported by any evidence whatsoever. I can suggest th...

Re: Baltic Crossing Poland-Denmark

Why did your movie producer cropped the image on the top and bottom -- to make it more "cinematic"? Those black bars at the top and bottom are a great disservice to your viewers. Currently, less than 1% of all computer monitors are ultrawide; I would be surprised if anybody on this forum had one. Th...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

A bit of simplification in this jungle. Original post updated with 5 main chinese manufacturers... I frankly fail to see the point. The stuff on alibaba is just one photo. In many cases it is not even clear if they sell the board or foil. How would I make purchasing decision based on this scarce in...
