Re: What to look when buying a used foil kite?

I think the strategy of knocking down the price until you are happy is the route most take. I am usually on the other side but I have bought some used foil kites. I think there is probably more worry than there needs to be. I bought a used 9m Sonic 2, it was used a few times before I bought it and n...

Re: Moving To Miami?

I spent the last two weeks of December in Miami Beach. Had a few nice days on the hydrofoil. As you walk around, you can see many of the projects that are raising the roads. Sunset Harbor is turning out to be really nice, I would often have coffee there. Rising sea levels are not a projection in Mia...

Re: Ketos: Is one-bolt mount strong enough?

I have used my Ketos foil with both Ketos boards and an Aplinefoil KFBox to plate (90mmx160mm) carbon adaptor. The mast fits perfectly into the Ketos boards. The carbon adaptor fit is just a little loose, I now put a tiny bit of plastic bag on the far sides of the mast when inserting the mast into t...

Re: Anyone know any details on the new upcoming foil from Flysurfer?

I think the current sizes are great expect for the 9m and then 6m. I think that is too large of a gap, I would prefer a 7m and 5m or a 7.5m and 6m, something like that. I realize that they do not sell a ton of the small kites, but going from a 6m to a 9m is a big step. Now with foil boards, you don'...

Re: Advice on foil kite

I fly both foil kites and LEI. I prefer foil kites and prefer to fly them when the launch is reasonable. Several times I have heard from people who have never flown a foil kite that the range is a lot different than a LEI. Interesting that I have never heard this from someone who flies foil kites. M...

Re: Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular

I bought the Apple Watch thinking that it would be a nice watch and possibly useful when kiteboarding. So far that is how it is turning out for me. I have tried and tried to get Siri to make a phone call or send a message while on my foil board. I have not once been able to send a txt message and on...

Re: Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular

I have the new Apple Watch, I used the Strava App to record my session and the battery ran low. The session was record for 2 hours 20 minutes and then stopped, I was out for 4 hours. I only used it once while on the water so really did not get to check how easy it is to send a message or make a call...

Re: Going even bigger foil kite, what size?

I have seen lots of threads where people are choosing between kites. I have the 15m, 18m and 21m Sonic Race kites. I prefer the 15m when I have enough wind, then I prefer the 18m when the 15m is a struggle and then go with the 21m when the 18m is a struggle. The 15m is more versatile and more fun, t...

Re: Fins for Nobile surfboard

I bought some on eBay that fit and worked just fine, I could not tell the difference.
