Re: Packing up a foil kite with wet bar

I will rollup the kite with the bar in front of the leading edge and put the kite back in the bag with the bar outside the bag in the outside pocket. Still have the benefits of bar attached to kite without a soggy mess.

Re: Which is your preferred trim system?

The North/Duotone click rar does not handle looping well and will bind... Totally frustrating for me. I have the OR Click Bar I use for my LEI's but it does not have any metal in the center hole and I don't like the feeling of the PU tube to bar interface - Feels rough. For my foil kites I have been...

Problem with Click-bar is that it binds if you turn the kite which is IMO the worst thing in kite bars and foil kites like to be sheeted.
+1. I tried the Click bar for one session and the binding while looping was too much hassle.

Many of us live in sharks infested waters as well ;)
Plenty of wildlife in the ocean throughout the world. Shark sightings are common in SoCal.

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

Total garbage. Nothing like the power and response of a foil kite combined with super light bar pressure foiling high upwind. From five years ago to today, we now have about 20% of the local kiters hydrofoiling. From five years ago to today we went from 1-2 foil kites to close to 15% or more across ...

Re: What are the white patches on boards?

I love Camet Boards and one of the choices you have is a "distressed look" where Brian will actually sand away paint before doing the final clear coats. Makes it a unique piece and distracts theft since it looks old and beat up. 100% sure that board in the pic would have been painted solid white bef...

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

R&D does not get applied to every aspect of kite boarding evenly... In four years we went from Speed 4 to Chrono 1, Chrono 2, R1v1, R1v2, R1v3, back to R1v2, Elf, F-One, Speed 5, Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic Race, Sonic VMG, Hyperlink, and Soul ... Speed4 Lotus seemed to match stencils of Speed3, the Sp...

Re: Flysurfer VMG

Interesting, is there some forum info on this anywhere? Foilonfoil, how's the adjustment from the Sonic2 to Race? Sonic Race and VMGs are beautiful kites - a higher aspect ratio than the Sonic 2’s provide a more agile kite - fast moving. The 18m Race moves almost as quick as a 15m Sonic2. I find th...
