Re: How to self land core sensor pro bar

If I have to go ashore really powered, or for a break far away from the launch point, or just to get ashore - I ditch the safety first, and then climb the frontline to the V, and from then on both frontlines till up at the kite :thumb: IF something should go wrong (never experienced this though), I ...

Re: Bar sheeting travel / kite's angle of attack.

Hi, I have recently been told that the Ocean Rodeo Stickshift bar has 115 cm of bar sheeting travel if the adjustable stopper is set at the very top (which seems HUGE to me). My question is: How long can a bar's sheeting travel be without messing with the kite's angle of attack? Tks ZERO cm is the ...

Re: Ketos: Is one-bolt mount strong enough?

Roughly, since you asked: I ride 90 and 100 cm almost every time. A few times the short 80 cm for marginal dead onshore winds 5-7 knots, so used quite rare, but on some hot good summerdays it can be epic just to be able to get out :D 100 cm is the "go to" mast for normal wave or choppy small wave co...

Re: What's the worst thing about kite surfing?

Being alone on so many awesome days, definitely the worst :( Selflaunching and landing in any wind is easy, but finding others to ride with when conditions are "top", are often the most difficult and I dont like it, eventhough used to it, and of course prefer top conditions alone, over a social sess...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

I have a totally different opinion and experience than some in this thread... Namely that in onshore you need a kite that flies further forward, turns on a dime easily and depowered, and loads of depower. Totally opposite to the "deep sitting" grunty kites like the Kahoona which is not good for onsh...

Re: Ketos: Is one-bolt mount strong enough?

I have been using the Ketos wings and masts for almost three years now, and last two and a half years also Ketos boards, and never had any issues. Loving. and one of the reasons it is perfect for me, the "one screw only" for assembling/disassembling and changing boards/masts :thumb: Interesting if o...

Re: Summer foil video from Denmark

Awesome video Thomas, and good skills :thumb:

Winter in Denmark is tough, even though we ride, but it gives you so much more "fascination and desire" in spring/summer/autumn where you can ride in shorts and shorty sometimes :D

Re: Moses 2018

You are right Frank, not talking about wind speed, but rider GPS speed corrected for spikes :naughty: My point is, that making conclusions on individuals, regarding a foils high end (max speed) is not really possible - at least VERY difficult and require the very best riders, out together on the gea...

Re: Moses 2018

Hey Frank Rosin have you been able to test the high end of the Race Wings yet ? How would you test high end ??? I know many dont believe me, but IMO it is the rider that sets the high end, and far more important than most think, as soon as the gear is "adequate" :D I know a guy here who rides 88 / ...
