Re: New member from Florida

Eli, I will put a post about the classes I took from the school once I finished the next class. Toby, thank you! I didn't go today because the wind dropped overnight, we pushed the class back to Wednesday morning which is my next day off. Can't wait! What kind of gear (used gear) would you recommen...

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

If you weight 75kg, you would need a board that displaces 75 liters of water to "float" your weight (mass above the water, plus a little extra for the weight of the board). Even a 50l surfboard can't "float" you if you come to a full stop. A 35l board functioning in full displacement mode WILL SINK...

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

im not going to read all 9 pages of the thread lol, but i'll say that i can kite in just as light of winds with a big kite + lightwind surfboard as I can with a foil, pretty much. theres a lower limit to what a kite will fly in, and ive found i can ride a 17m + surfboard in about 10 knots. i can foi...

Re: New Tona gear

why do you have a problem with "generic alibaba bars" if they are excellent quality? it's a small company, chill and let them develop their products

Re: Southeast Florida and Keys kite road trip

Definitely lucky with the wind, we got 2-3 weeks where it was good, but before and after that have been pretty much dead.

Where did you launch from in Boca? Might have seen you out.

Re: Miami Beach Ban - Update

That sounds like a reasonable restriction to me as long as the restricted area is big enough. There are too many people in Miami and there are too many idiots trying to fly kites with little or no regard for beachgoers. This is how it is in any heavily populated area, you can't expect to have free r...

Re: How to jump on Sonic? Or any foil?

Thanks! I have a huge depower for my Edges, and using the same bar. Looks like need the second bar with small throw? It would not be possible to set the bar to backstall with such a long throw...how much throw do u have? this sounds a bit backward to me... longer throw = more depower, not more room...

Re: Advise on true wind range of 12m Cabrinha Switchblade 2016

I am a little heavier and have a 2016 switchblade. I kite with friends who are at your weight and we have similar range. I would say on a twintip you will need 15-16 mph / 14 knots especially as a beginner as you are less efficient with a kite. The top end is around 25 mph for me so maybe 23 for yo...
