Re: Kite loop to waterstart

as a beginner probably a bit hard to use unless you use loop to get up on board as the kite goes back up to 12. I have never used downloop but with back loop I have tried a few things. 1) in marginal wind to get as much speed and power from kite very wide loop, and get teh kite to go right in middle...

Re: Big Land Gaps

Oh nice, I will definitely try to go back to OBX soon, April maybe. Like Nick said it depends on kite and if you want to go for distance downwind or cross wind. For cross wind I send kite fairly hard for early lift and also pop a bit earlier so I retain a lot of cross wind speed, and I redirect kite...

Re: Downloop after kiteloop

After a jump and kiteloop how is going with the second loop or heliloop - you looking up in milisecond to the kite position in sky ? I think not looking to the kite lot of kiters, because there is no time to look up after first kiteloop and you can look only in searching landing in water surface pr...

Re: Eleveight FS Review

Update. This kite boosts! First time on the FS09 I broke my height record, 37.5 feet in 25g30. Prior record (other than FS12) was 28 ft on Liquid Force NV07 in 30G35. That's basically 35% more air in 20% less wind. Ridiculous. It did stall once, but completely my fault, swung way underneath and lan...

Re: Big Land Gaps

That’s dope! I have had some good times riding with Aaron down here in Hatteras. Here is a big fail I had trying to megaloop one of the gaps and ended up in a bush 😂 I still prefer the pivot for the hang time. What kind of kite do you use, Toby? https://youtu.be/WrJYj54GnNM LOL I love land gap, I h...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Wow. This topic - 8 pages on how to turn a Hydrofoil ? TLDR but for me carving the foil (after 3 years of foiling) is no different to carving a skateboard / snowboard. It’s all hips and knees and looking thru the turn to the exit. You can’t stamp down on the tail because that will just breach the f...

Re: Summer Vs Winter Riding - Versus w/Rygo Ep 15

I would add that in early spring don't skip on gloves, even if air is warm and sun keeps your hands warm, if you have to self rescue/or QR is released and loose finger dexterity it could get messy. Imagine QR release and you don't have dexterity to reset QR... You won't even be able to release leash...
