Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

If woo designed the factory chip they would need to specifically look for wave peaks and troughs and then determine the at rest height but they don't, they will be analysing data that is most likely already tainted by previous recent jump influences. How do you come up with stuff like this? This so...

Re: Upgrading to a new board

Go more rectangular for better jumping. Rounder ends for smoothness in carving. Heavier and/or concave for smoothness in chop. Flatter for better upwind and more time in the air. More rocker for blitzing fast in chop leading up to a jump. More concave for better up wind. Less concave for softer land...

Re: Convertible challenge

I’m thinking mine will either end up with some glass or bias oriented cloth to get just a bit of flex... I've just done a semi infusion :o of a twintip with combined uni glass 150mm 850gsm top and bottom and double bias 650 gdm full width top and bottom over 10mm foamcore. Slower hardener next time...

Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

I've suggested a likely cause of error before. No degrees here, no top 20 android apps, no genius friends to advise on other's errors. However, the woo chips have to work out an average water height level reference if they are going to record a jump height from lake/river/sea level. If the average ...

Re: Why do I need a much bigger board AND bigger kite for a heavier rider?

You also have more drag on a heavier board and displace more water with more weight.
However, the biggest jumpers usually go way overpowered. They are usually skinny with a good muscle to bone ratio and little fat.

Re: Board design -- also a boring question

How is the edge shorter when you're carving? Why does more rocker carve faster? Wouldn't the whole board just flatten out as it loads up? How is the edge shorter when you're carving?- Because square tips are in the water far away from your feet, you need more torque to change the board angle. And o...

Re: Eleveight RS 14m 2018 review

I had a look at an eleveight bar early this year. I like the way the quick release clicks back, no fiddly resetting. Simple reliable looking bar.

Re: Board design -- also a boring question

Why do outlines have to be curved? They don't. Curving off the corners reduces the end width while leaving length. This makes them ride softer and give some stability against nose diving while being more responsive to rear foot control. Also, when you are carving the edge is shorter so the board be...
