Re: Diable line of Elf Joker7

You can tune the bridle as well as your bar so that when you let out your trimmer all the way and pull the bar against the chicken loop it increases the final ratios of the bridle to greatly increase camber for more downwind angle. When I first flew my 15m, my flying lines were all equal length wit...

Why pro-riders move the hip forwards?

Happy 2018 guys,
Why pro-riders move the hip forwards while going upwind? It is to put more weight at the front or the curved body shape reduce the resistance?
Thanks

What sort of paint we put to polish up our foil surface?

Hi there,
I have been riding on KFA as second hand gear. The previous owner had painted something to polish up the surface of the carbon foil, but it has been fading away. What sort of material shall we put to polish up the carbon foil?
Thanks.

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

KFA mk3 is a super nice foil but takes a bit of getting used to. I moved from Spotz to KFA mk3 a while back and for a while found it difficult to ride compared to Spotz which is much smoother up onto the foil.. Now I love it but it is very sensitive to foot and track position. If you can find an ex...

Lean back a tad, add more speed, when you start rising out of the water lean a little forward. relax. if your getting too hi...

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

I'm 50+ hours and a year into the journey. Get more board speed. Point your knees forward. And All the vets here told me to keep practicing, it's true it takes more hours than other sports. I'm getting my carves / gybes nailed now and it's hard to believe that it now is clicking and feeling the flo...

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

When I was learning, the thing that clicked for me was unweighting my back foot instead of weighting my front foot, and vice versa. So if you feel the foil coming up, instead of driving your weight forwards to weight your front foot, focus on lifting your back foot up. I think what is actually happ...
