With polarized lenses you can't see the water Surface very well
the first (and only) time i tried wearing sunglasses while foiling i thought i was going to die because I couldn't tell how high off the water i was :lol: had to ride so carefully

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

Fly the kite at 12 oclock and pull the safety. The kite will generally land direct downwind from you with little possibility of damage. Very easy to walk the safety line without damaging your hands. I don't understand the reluctance to use the safety on a kite. the argument they were making was tha...

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

hm, i've never had a problem self landing in ~30 knots just by flagging a 4 line kite. maybe the bridle shape has a lot to do with how well it stays put without flying around too much. Then you haven't been out in enough wind! you get to a point of stupid overpowered when theres still too much pull...

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

might be worth trying a different foil that's easier to ride, you should be able to foil short distances pretty comfortably within a couple hours of riding assuming ideal conditions. i can ride my ss hoverglide almost with the wing stalling going <10 kts of board speed and be totally stable, whereas...

Re: Blowing 11mph Gusting 30mph

i'd wait for another day because no matter what size you rig it's going to be awful to ride in if someone was forcing me to ride on a day like that id probably put up something like a 10m with a twintip and just sit in the water during the lulls if its more like 11mph average only with the occasiona...

Re: Wheeler Wonder?

I think he was making aftermarket wings for the LF foil. Now Liquid force is making his design as the LF thruster. Flat isn't bad. Curved wings have better yaw and roll stability. It also allows you to roll more before breaching surface. Flat wings don't ventilate as severely when the wingtip breec...

Re: Which Bar?

A quick question yesterday I tried to use my north click bar on my best 9.5 kahuna and it seemed to be back stalling..Do I need to use a best bar made for that kite? Or what type of adjustment can I make..what is the right bar for that kite? Not sure if you flown that Kahoona before - the Kahoonas ...
