Re: Bar without Trim adjustment

Foil kites have so much wind range, I feel like a trimless bar would really limit how and when you can use your kite. Not to say it wouldn't be nice and clean, but having the ability to change line lengths on the fly while riding is a big multiplier, especially with a hydrofoil. I agree. But you ca...

Re: Aluminium Clearwater

The more I think about it, the more I like it. yeah, I like the modular approach here. Build a wing from their template, then mess with it all you want to get it right, or build others from your own template. It's a foiling tinkerer's dream! The most complex part is done for you and all the customi...

Re: The stagnant foiler.

There are people who are deeply passionate about long distance kayaking who never learn anything more advanced than how to dip their paddle into the water and propel themselves forward. Sounds like the stagnation is in your mind, not in foiling. If you want to someday beat Nico around the race cours...

Re: how important is pre-inflation?

I've found pre-inflation to be most beneficial in stronger winds. If you don't inflate, the wind hitting the bottom skin sort of just collapses the kite on itself, the vents don't get enough pressure to overcome this really, so the kite usually launches and then immediately wraps the wingtips. If yo...

Re: One kite for old school AND foiling

12m or 15m foil kite. Checks all your boxes except the lowend grunt, which let's be real "hangs in light wind" and "lowend grunt" aren't in the same category.

Re: Wind Ranges related to kite Sizes, please share you experience!

Delta race foil 15m Elf Joker 7 on 17m lines - most days, until the meters are truly hitting 17 knots. This looks like pretty vigorous, constant white caps. 11m Sonic2 on 16m lines - Constant whitecaps, up to about 22 knots, if I'm out boosting maybe a bit more but the kite doesn't depower at all ab...

Re: Are you thinking about becoming a foiler?

If you can fly the kite safely and effectively, skip lessons. If you can't kite yet, start there. Self-taught on last generation carbon race equipment, was able to ride both directions on a stable foil after 10 hours of practice. It's pretty easy if you've ever surfed, skateboarded, snowboarded in p...
