Re: Any experience with high load jumping using a "kite foil box"

Some of our most frequent boosters ( 10's of thousands of massive boosts) are running on Alpine with KF. Haven't see one fail yet which amazes me. Other brands were not as robust. Personally I prefer the strength of the distributed load of the Moses plate system. Hard to imagine the single boxes hol...

Re: Self Landing Foilkites in 20+kts

I always ask "have you landed a foil before"? then, "stand with back to wind and I will bring it to you, grab the wing tip and then back up into the wind and it will lay down for you". "Whatever you do, don't let go. If you feel strings around you, don't let go....just hold on and I will come to you...

Re: Fly surfer soul wind range

It definitely has a power spike on a loop that the Sonics don't have. Notice it on Gybes on foil and find that if I don't sheet out quite a bit then I'm gonna go over the handlebars. I do like the linear depower of it though!

Re: Seat harness for Hydrofoiling. Which are you using and why?

On my second Vega. Perfect balance for me. I run an NP Halo bar though because I cannot stand inadvertent loop unhooks.

Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

I think this past thursday in Toronto it was almost 50/50. A number of us ride only foil no matter the conditions....but in reality, in less windy climates you either sit on the beach or foil. For those of us who are addicted, everything else seems archaic and plodding. I respect all the ways people...

Re: Learning process - onda or 590? (Moses gear)

633 would be the easiest overall but only when it is trimmed out correctly.....requires a board with tracks and weight very forward compared to the Moses wings and fuse designed for kiting vs surf/sup. If you are using a fixed point Moses board or a board without tracks I would get the 590.
