Re: Levitaz 2018

I agree. I will post more info about the products when we get closer to the release end of Q1 Hi Levitaz, sorry, but I don't see new info, just even more high-gloss-caribbean videos... But I am done with the boards anyway, happily found this green beauty and ordered two further from other manufactu...

Re: Waring on Foil Mount adhesive

Hi NYKiter, sorry to hear you lost your foil. Apart from what the others said, I would not say that foilmount is something forbidden to be used. But I just have never seen the price to function value, as every shaper will add you solid tracks for that price without loosing the old foilless ability o...

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

Yes, also at my setups I have around 4 cm inbetween strut positions with and without stabi. There are also some boards with tracks to much in the back, which potentially will not allow a monofoil friendly setting, even not in the full forward strut position. Good if you can take extra long tracks as...

Re: Any experience with high load jumping using a "kite foil box"

Hi cglazier, yes I see your points, but I am sure it is not about absolute values of the strengt of a best material M6 screw but much about load caused by leverage. I have seen constructions with M6 screws of best quality steel that broke during riding and looked like out of a tensile test. Studied ...

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

Hi (now it starts that we can call us:) monofoiling community :wink: :D @grigorib: I think the H4 should work very good to get started. For long term it might have not all the benefits as super low drag and therefore also not great light wind and small kite ability as it will have due to its size an...

Any experience with high load jumping using a "kite foil box"

I actualy design plans for a new board to give them to my shaper. To be as flexible as possible I want to set inbetween the two standard rails for plate mount also a rail that will allow at least three position for kitefoilbox (kfb) strut heads (-4 cm, 0 cm + 4cm) . I know this will go on cost of we...

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

Oyvind, Does Ketos sell this "fuselage online? Does Moses have something similar? Unfortunately I haven't seen any brand making the first step to offer a serial 0-fuselage and as market is till now still small up to not existing, it's easy to understand. On the other Hand, according to construction...

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

Stabless is highly addictive :) Love it ! Dont think I will be going back. Happy Birthday! and very very nice again, biggest respect. :thumb: What I said, prices for stabis are going to fall, when people start to eat from the monofruit :D I think after my excursion to "boosting" I got to also try o...
