Re: Splicing tips?

I can't imagine trying to do that with a guitar string, I'd definitely go buy a fid at West Marine for that stuff.

at some point you just have to go for it
True story. The best advice I ever got from someone when learning how to gybe was, "you're going way too slow, just fucking send it and it'll work out."

Re: Diable line of Elf Joker7

Thanks for the info. I purchased a used J7 15m last year that was tuned very well, not that I would be able to tell the difference, but I haven’t had any issues you’ve described. But I’m not in the foiling game, just use it to rip around on a TT in lighter breeze. Is there a good diagram/tuning cha...

Re: are newer boards easier?!

When I went from a Taaroa Sword2 to a Delta Hydrofoil, I felt like the things I wanted to do were easier, at the expense of some things that weren't important for me. For example, it is much more stable in the direction of pitch up and down, so my very first attempt at a foiling gybe with downloop w...

Re: Diable line of Elf Joker7

Mossy, 1. let out trimmer all the way, means lengthen the front lines right? 2. pull the bar against chicken loop, means sheeting in right? These add up to give more camber. Ariel 1. Yes 2. Yes The way the speed systems and bridles work, they add camber to the kite in the final few inches of the ra...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list

BTW having a slight backstall when fully powered-up can be useful for snowkite application ; I am not saying Pansh did it on purpose, but I personally like this and do not mind to trim 5 cm if i want to cancel it. And I very often use a bit of trim on my HF. Mesmerizing :) Can you explain in more d...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2018

I'm sure all the Ram Air kites out there will really suck this year. The closed-cell foil kites, however, will continue to shine!

Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

Are you sure almost all changed to single frontline QR? The ones that do not do this still have pretty decent safeties these days. I'd do some internet research on the major brands, you can look at their control systems on their websites and see which have the SLFO system. I can definitively say th...

Re: Foil kite resistance against hitting the water

I think if you're going to destroy a foil it's by taking it flying full of sand or water and putting too much stress on the stitching. Tomahawking a kite LE side down is never good, but I think the forces are much greater when trying to relaunch a drenched kite versus just overpressurizing it intern...
