Re: Tacking! More Power Scotty!!

Just an update to say that I have found rear foot placement following the tack is a contributing factor. I have not been placing my new rear foot back far enough for effective input/control.

Re: Gasping for breath after crash?! Breathing how to?

Might be worthwhile to have your lungs checked out by DR with some sort of stress test... I have not encountered anyone who has the problem you describe.

Re: Any of you hydrofoil freaks doing distance runs?

Melbourne, Australia offers many opportunities for long distance trips as the city wraps around Port Phillip Bay. Launching from Frankston/Seaford and heading north or launching from Port Melbourne and heading south. Two train lines run close to the coast (Sandringham and Frankston lines) so getting...

Re: More wings, the hard way?

Wow! Not a comment, addition or anything, I'm pouring my guts out, for years, every hard won tip that I can share.. I always hope I reach at least one interested builder. I would love to have the time to build my own wings and it is interesting to learn how others fab up test designs. In terms of b...

Doing a small pump off your back foot just before you move it off the board is key to having the momentum to come out of the tack.
Sweet! I was not even aware this was happening.

Tacking! More Power Scotty!!

Tacking continues to improve but I am finding I don't have enough power at the end of the tack and my board touches down. The kite kite may now be at the bottom of the window and I have to sine to get my speed going again. I may be slowing down too much through the tack and other than going faster e...

Re: Kite loop to waterstart

All my buddies and I use downloops starting at the top of the window away from your intended direction of travel (backloop) so that the kite swings through the bottom of the window at speed. Bring it up the window at 30 degrees vs a full circle to use the power for your water start. I am normally up...

Hydrofoil Tacking with a Downloop?

Hey,

Anyone been able to pull off a tack downlooping the kite? Instead of bringing the kite over the window from 10-2 / 2-10, downloop the kite 10-12-back to 10 and beyond for a downloop. Any video?

I have been itching to try it but just wanted to see some video first.

Re: Canopy Trinity by North... where to buy the original parts to do a repair?

I would contact North first, but the good news is the fabric was developed by Teijin so it should be pretty accessible.
