Re: What is considered to be a big or small Board size for hydrofoiling

I’ve been riding MHL Lift 2013 till last year with original MHL board, then switched to 54” Dwarfcraft and didn’t miss anything and then moved to 42” Dwarfcraft. The 2013 Lift has about 130 sq.in area so it takes off early and you don’t need to build speed to go. And that’s when a tiny board works g...

Here’s how my quiver lines up for my 200 lbs to be used with a TT. Wind speed in knots

Re: Need advice for beginner - kite size

...This graph courtesy of Peter Frank is a close guide for me at 116Kg, (free ride type kites) I would be interested to hear how accurate it is a the lighter weight end. https://s5.postimg.cc/aq1exh7hz/Kite_size_for_wind.jpg ...although my buddies love their Slingshot Rallys in all sizes. I would g...

Re: Need advice for beginner - kite size

on a cheap end find a 2012 Rally 14m as LW kite and 10m Rally 2012 as her regular size. For newer I'd say 13m Contra for LW and 9m Rally (2014 or newer) as regular consider 10 knots a LW conditions though and larger (door) board will help a lot as well as line extensions. Don't look at any kites old...

Re: Cabrinha Contra vs. Core XR5 15 m

I am a low intermediate twintip rider, 75 kg. My lightwind kite is a 2016 15 m Contra with the overdrive 1x recoil bar. Somehow, I have never really fallen in love with this kite. It feels pretty slow, and the bar feels big and heavy. My other kites are North Evos, and I find myself rigging the nex...

Re: Nobile NHP Carbon VS Carved Imperator?

Check out CrazyFly Raptor Limited, CrazyFly Elite and the Slingshot Widowmaker if you're looking at expensive ones. I've been extremely/owerwhelmingly happy with Spleene RIP 137x42 personally. I like how Carved save on top of the board laminate weight but dams stickers on it are beyond shameful. $35...

Some people are bored, some have too much time, some to come to share knowledge and stoke. It’s not just the faceless internet - it leads to people you wouldn’t have met otherwise.

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge......this one sucks.

We just need a huge campground or bigger SDA with grass or sand to launch and ride the sound. Kiters’ paradise which is not possible because every tiny piece of wetlands which stretch for 50 miles is protected and no preservation regulations would not allow to make a quarter mile long lawn/beach. An...

Re: Cabrinha Contra 17 or 19m?

... The 17m Turbine tended to get overpowered at 16-17kts, but where it really struggled was the gusts. My 19m Core has a lot wider range than that 17m. I would just finish sessions with no skin on my hands , a sore back, and tired arms from the bar pressure on the Turbine. ... 16-17 knots means wh...
