Re: Ultra V2 or Nexus?

For foiling in very light wind definitively the Ultra is the way to go it will stay in the air in almost no wind and drift downwind effortlessly. When you get into the smaller size like 9m it's less of an issue so pick the one you like best because there is enough wind to keep it up there even when ...

Re: CR-X One design foilboard - kiteboarding

I saw one at the beach the twintip has a lot of flex so probably very bouncy when you ride but I haven't tried it.. the foil looked OK. Maybe mounting this on a normal foil board would work. I believe the mast and fuselage are the same as the Cabrinha so you could swap the wings. That's probably fix...

Re: Velcro or Ratchet - What would you prefer on a Spleene Kiteboard?

Ratchet all the way being able to adjust on the water with a few clicks is awesome. My Axis pads are comfortable but really hard to adjust on the go.

Re: New foiler- straps setups

I prefer 2 very loose front straps for a more comfortable stance and easy water start. None in the back much easier to let go of the board with no back strap also easier to find the perfect spot for your foot and to gybe.

Re: Best bankrupt?

It was the same investor. Now in jail... Basically the story is, if you involve wall street guys they want too much and at the end it all collapses...like 2008. Totally agree I think most of the brands who survive are run by passionate people who do it for the love of the sport and the lifestyle th...
