Re: how long is too long?!

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Why so confrontational and aggressive. Your overall tone on the thread and the other one you started is so strident. We get it that you love these kites but try to calm down a bit. Did I read that correctly? I'm confrontational, aggressive, and strident? Someone mentioned about having no real need ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Example of me having to use the Flysurfer warranty; I was working on my back rotation with downloop which ended up having the kite crash hard on a submerged log. Completely destroyed the kite by ripped a wing off. I bought this kite second hand and I was in South Africa at the time. Not only did th...

Re: Launching solo

Don’t be in a rush to self launch. You need more time kiting. Always go with someone until you have LOTS more experience.

Re: Lighter fuselage for Slingshot Hoverglide?

I used SS Hoverglide incl School Masts for my first season and was fully happy with the steps it supported me as advertised. Alongside with growing mast lengths and weights my wish grew to lower the full rig weight and I finally decided to swap with a Moses Fluente, which cost me 530 on top. Weight...

Re: Best lightwind board

Foil with more lift (like an SUP foil) will help your light wind problem and will be more fun in the waves.

Getting a bigger board at your skill level is going backwards.

I personally would want carbon fuselage. I actually wouldn’t mind a heavy aluminum mast, but light wings/fuse are just so much easier to handle in the water. (Not sure about aluminum mast playing nice with carbon fuselage, though).
Exactly. Carbon fuse is more important than carbon mast

Re: Groove Skate

Just looking at pictures and video, it does appear to have an exaggerated amount of rocker. More than I have seen on any other production foil board. Also very curious how it rides.

Re: Which bar for petite person / shorter arms

Get rid of the chicken loop then I’ll bet most bars will work. Both north and SS have this option

Re: Foiling. What next?

So! I can ride - I'm in control, I can do S turns. I can return /go downwind/. I can ride strapless, but still feel more in control with very loose barely touching my foot front strap /the central one/. So what to do next? My downwind isn't very good - angle aren't good - my no natural direction is...
