Re: Advice for flying a LEI

Consider line extensions?

They give the kite a bigger window to work with, while still staying high enough.

Also, if you are kitibg with a tree-lined shore and light wind, the extensions may help you reach higher to cleaner breeze.

Re: Mantafoils

I've also had the idea for an inflatable hfkb. A wake skate, minimum size, with an inflatable "board" that gets added onto the bottom of the wkaeskate for light wind days. Perfect for travel.

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a foilkite fan

...I think its very valid to point out that some of the single strut kites are more show than substance. The LF solo has never shown itself to be very light or quick and it shows when you fly one next to a cloud. In my opinion the solo was a simple knee jerk reaction without much thinking through t...

Re: Ozone releases R1V3...does this crap ever end?!

The racing arms race continues.

But it's good for all of us if it pushes the technology and keeps the used market flooded with good used racing gear...

Re: North coming out with a new foil?

Release in June, but no prototype test reports yet?

Price seems fine if the performance is there. At that price the Zeeko aluminum is the one to beat?

Why is the foil shown ventilating in the marketing photo?

Re: food for thought - strut position
