Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Latest BRM vid OMFG CLOUDS HAVE STRUTS NOW!?!??!?!??!?!??!??!?! It looks like bigger sizes yes, and for some ride his riding doesnt look so impressive now, he is going too slow now, the foil is too big i guess. Wow, great - now they are much more appealing to me at least, I prefer light strutted ki...

Re: DIY bar strength?

Imagine the chaos of a snapped bar 😐 I imagine it will most likely snap in the centre. Which means both steering lines go slack. Release to single front line and self rescue. Or did I miss something? Agree, I see no problem really :wink: You probably dont even have to release to a line if hydrofoil...

Re: Hydrofoil choice

Thanks for the input. Any experience with the liquid force foils? Loads of experience all over the world on Liquid Force - some hate these, others love them (good value as low cost) :wink: Try to browse and search the Kiteforum Hydrofoil forum instead, there are 2330 topics in there, started in 201...

Re: DIY bar strength?

Regarding foiling, it depends on the style you ride - racelike, jumping really powered, or freestyle/waves ? If the latter, you dont have any significant load on the rear lines really, and I would not worry about it. The most load then, on the rearlines, will be when you loop the kite, and here you ...

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

When everything, or even just ONE thing, just clicks for you, no matter WHAT you ride, and you get the ZEN feeling :naughty:

This stoke lasts for sooooo long, after the session :D

Happens very often, with the right attitude, no matter how good or lousy you are :thumb:

Re: Cape Town Visitors - Avoid killing each other

4.Rider with right hand forward on bar has right of way. What about the rider riding/surfing a wave with a kite has right of way against the one riding away from the shore. The last time I was there a local made it pretty clear to me that that is how it is done around capetown at least among surfbo...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Apparently we dont agree about what "waveriding" is.... (a lot more than which kites we like to use) I agree fully with Eduardo, that if dead onshore it is not waveriding, but playing around on the waves - a very different thing, can be fun too, but got nothing to do with the term most think of when...

Not possible strapless, ... 8) PF Trying to understand- What exactly are you referring to? I did not get it or doubt that it is the case. Cheers, Frank www.famousfrank.com I am referring to having a big board (both volume and area), necessary for really light winds, and a long mast, starting in sha...

Re: Pansh Aurora2 19m with Zeeko Carver

I made a custom 80cm bar for my Aurora2 22m works great it still slow but it's a 22m with 30m lines. The kite is insane I'm 220 and I can ride in 6 knots on huge door. I find I don't need it with the Hydrofoil 15m is big enough! A 22 m2 corresponds to a 16.5 m2 for the average weight. For many, a 1...

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

Hi Peter, I am curious of why 80 cm (shorter mast) is better in Low wind conditions ? This is something i never heard before and I always look to improve the Low end where I can ride. -D. A few times the short 80 cm for marginal dead onshore winds 5-7 knots, so used quite rare, but on some hot good...
