Re: How much fun is this vid from Kev?

very nice! My friend Jimbo got a fellow citizen calling 911 on him to "rescue someone who landed his parachute in a pond". He realized the firefighters and cops who gathered on the shore did not put flashing lights on for illumination while watching him ride. I'm blessed with having a retention pond...

Re: What's your favorite lightwind kite?

15m Turbine on a 170x50cm FlydoorXL and long lines. 37m lines is usual pick. Works perfect. I'd prefer to rather foil and foil under a smaller wing but it's less of an option on shallow or in side-offshore wind. 8 knots is quite doable. 7 is stretching it. Given there's no big lulls. There might be ...

Re: Liquid Force compatible surf foil wing

Original foil fish wing. Early planing, lower speeds. I think it’s same like yours though.

Re: Moses 2018

Has anyone tested the new 558 and 590 wings? Just sold my 2017 Fluente (550 + 330 stabilizer). Thinking of buying a Vorace (101) mast and a 330 stabilizer, but am debating between the 558 and 590 front wing. I'm still learning how to foil gybe and tack (I have no problems switching my feet with a q...

Re: Short Leash Vs Long Leash

Other short leash pros/cons: + will not drag you backwards in event of a deathlooping kite - can't use it as a shoulder strap when carrying all the gear wrapped into the harness + compact and doesn't dangle around as much - can't use it to hook in the kite behind you and walk back if you have to wal...

Re: First foil - Slingshot hoverglide ?

Adding more info I'm aware that it's quite a heavy setup, much like the Cabrinha Double agent which I can get used for a good price (although I've read that it's a dud outdated and slow foil). It depends a lot what are you going to want to do with your foil. If speed is your passion, then you'd like...

Re: Which Bar?

A quick question yesterday I tried to use my north click bar on my best 9.5 kahuna and it seemed to be back stalling..Do I need to use a best bar made for that kite? Or what type of adjustment can I make..what is the right bar for that kite? Not sure if you flown that Kahoona before - the Kahoonas ...

Re: First foil - Slingshot hoverglide ?

Has anyone tried the Slingshot boards Alien air vs Drwarfcraft and compared the two ? I learnt on MHL Lift 2013. Medium-Low aspect wing, 35.5" mast. It wasn't easy beginning but I started foiling on 3'rd session. Tried the Hoverglide later and didn't like it as it needed more speed to start foiling...
