Re: Kitemare on my Diablo

It landed trailing edge but twisted on a wave before I could water start.

Kitemare on my Diablo

Went out yesterday in 9-12 with light seas.Had a great session for the first 45min. ,then a noticeable wind drop. I began making my way back to the shore on my goofy stance on the foil when I dropped the kite in the water,was able to get 1 wing tip up but just not enough breeze to water launch. Half...

Re: How has foiling improved your normal riding?

I think foiling helps one concentrate and improve balance, your awareness of wind fluctuations and kite adjustments which are key to all facets of kiteboarding. Foiling requires you to focus at a elevated level ( no pun intended). I find when I go out now on my SB wave riding I' have a higher level ...

Yep, that's what I figured. I can't complain about my local beach just tired of winter and was thinking about a getaway trip.

Northern Carribean locations for kitesurfing

Does anyone have any special places to go during the winter with chest high waves that you can ride a country mile and they don't close out, warm clear water with spectacular views,no need for drysuits and that occasional bikini you see walking on the beach.I'm in search of a foiling/surfing paradise.

Re: Loosing Lift on Waves

It's definitely possible it's ventilation but it also may be just not enough back pressure on your back leg to keep the foil engaged and the board from touching down. I also pump the foil if I'm in a lull down in the trough of the wave or carve to re-engage the wave face. Experiment and try these op...

Re: Game changer - Onewheel teaches how to turn on a foil

An alternative but I'd much rather take my falls on the water. Hopefully now I've progressed enough where it seldom happens anymore. Got the toeside down 95% of the time now it's a matter of completing switching feet on the jibes, then I'll really be stoked!

Re: Adapter to change deep tuttle to a plate

If it helps I saw 2 or 3 types of plates that Americankiteboarding.com are making to adapt to the different style of mast bases.
