Re: Liquid Force compatible surf foil wing

Ive been asking LF for this for a year, since I have a lot of their foil components and like them. Weird that they missed the boat considering it's not exactly rocket science and would be perfect with their modular systems and they would sell quite a few I imagine, even to regular surfers wanting to...

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

You are correct, there is no good solution despite 15+ years of trying. I kite alone quite often in high winds, I always attempt the upper centerline trick and it works about 50% in high winds >25mph, when it fails I pull the QR and the kite rolls twice to downwind and i walk to it using the flaglin...

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

For warmer temps...down to 40*F, anyone try the Xcel "Anti-Glove"? Basically just blocks the wind but that's often all you need to that temperature

Great stuff! My family used to have a Hobie Trifoiler, fastest production sailboat, very fun to pull a couple G's going 45mph in the cockpit

Re: 2017 Kite Sales

Don't you know that since the new 2018 models have been released all 2017 model kites are now obselete?!?! Genius kite designers all had their annual simultaneous revelation in kite design! Now all the wingtips are slightly different/better, the leading edges are thinner but also more durable, and t...

Re: Recommendations for a kite

Definitely don't look at those charts, they are a joke and it's a wonder they still publish them due to the aforementioned numerous flaws. To address your initial plan: kitesurfing when the wind is "less than 15 knots" sucks unless you are riding a hydrofoil board which is a bit tough to start on as...

Re: Mounting a hydrofoil on your TT

I think the flex could really be a problem, I have a crazyfly raptor TT that's carbon and it's super flexy, seems like it might be a little wonky when riding

Re: Wave surfing swell with kite hydrofoil

I've tried wakesurfing with a kitefoil (without rope) and it doesn't work.

You just need a bigger wing like the Takuma, GoFoil, Naish Kai, or big Slingshot wings.
