Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Anything better than being a kiter and having a Monofoil to ride? Having TWO Monofoils :rollgrin: ……… and as they are monos, they will still fit more easily into your car trunk as one stabi foil :P Kitejunkie-Monofoils.jpg The big high AR is more experimental, than for all day use and also less show...

Re: Lecca-Lecca Minima 11m First Flight

Hi omg, not knowing / nevers seen your pumping skill, hard to say. If you can pump around without kite, than it will work for sure :wink: And also in for sure not more than 6 knts with 62 kg on a ca. 650 cm² monofoil, even on 17 m short lines, it worked fine, see 1:07 min around the church: https://...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Very nice Øyvind, even if I doupt I will ever go back to strapless, very niceseeing people pushing its potential. :thumb: and very nice material combo for this style … and even if the strut could be to short: maybe try to add a caneri man. Tried caneri man jibe these days, but didn't get it, maybe i...

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.
