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...

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

I had an idea to use #5 to combat seaweed. With the fuselage flowing straight into the front wing leading edge, so hopefully seaweed would flow down the fuselage, then off the sides of the front foil (which would be swept back to better shed seaweed)

Re: Lift introduces electric foil!

Interesting that the motor/propeller is above the foil. So you breach the propeller and lose thrust, but don't breach the foil and come down off the foil.

Has anyone seen video of anyone starting from a dead stop on one of these things?

Re: Rob Douglas crowned the 2016 IKA Kitespeed world champion

My current understanding is that for top speed, "speed boards" have ruled for years. "Speed Boards" look like someone started with a narrow twin tip, and started cutting away lots of material. They are usually asymmetric (not just uni-directional, but asymmetric, so you need two boards, one for port...
