Re: Flysurfer Sonic Race VMG

"... Quote: Sonic race Is very stable and ultra efficient. Flies clearly faster. Incredible pull. I have used 21m in 3 knots and am able to foil. (one mistake and you swim though.) Very poor jumping ability even overpovered. It has plenty of glide. But no height. ... … End of Quote" Don't worry the...

Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

Hi Peter, thank You for the flowers :D . It is not easy for sure, but what I wanted to say is: The biggest effort is to: 1. find your personal perfect setting which is extremly sensitive to line length (actually think about to shorten my overall 20 m setup by 0,5 m as it makes a difference, just to ...

Re: Sitting on foil. So fun!

I fear that once i get down there I might never back up. It is possible, but even if I have done it a few times I normaly don't care and am to lazy as it just cost some force and can be a bit dangerous, so normaly I just drop and restart. For me even more important would be: learn jibes sitting, so...

Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

@Regis: Will take a bit as before taking a camera I want to now learn it again repeatable in a wider range of conditions and setups, which I actually test. Infinity would be cool, but I think, we are actually far from that. @jumptheshark: Don't think you profit at any point from a heavier kite, as i...

Re: Neil Pryde CR:X foil

CR:X foil is the Cabrinha low cost chinese foil as Cabrinha is part of Pryde Group. CR:X just has little higher AR wings and they decided to tell people that a twintip on a foil is a good idea, or maybe just decided that it could be possible to sell this idea to beginners. While all other companies ...

Re: Lecca-Lecca Minima 11m First Flight

:thumb:
Had pretty much the same impression, not the same windrange as modern race kites for sure, but overall and price to value just fine.

Didn't you feel a 55 cm bar with 18-20 m lines would fit better?

Re: 9m Hyperlink UL loses pressure too soon

Hi damsko, with light cloth there is always the risk of getting leaky in a shorter time. Flysurfer Speed 3 with the old Deluxe cloth in 2010 had this problem after 4 years and 300 sessions in my case, as I remembere value measured with the shown porosimeter dropped to 20-30 sec. Maybe you have a goo...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Nice Gunnar, let's see if stunt kiting is getting more common. On my lakes I already inspired one guy with a tube kite at 0:40 :D after being myself inspired by Greg's style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9zZlJjn9ss I have writen something about, but just in German: http://kj4l.com/2017/11/18/how...

Re: Relaunching a wet foil kite

@Macster: Yes and no: Yes Patience can be important, but short lines just make Drops more likely but are just helpful to wind up to get to the kite to put it into a good starting Position which should not be necessary in 99% of the relaunches. If you drop your foil kite, while riding a foil board: 1...
