Re: Strappless or Strapped for Learning to Foil ??

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

Just the look of the groove skate wins for me compared to the dwarf craft, there are 3 in regular use at my local spot, all different colours, mine is in fluro green, another is fluro orange and the other is in light grey, and the grey one looks a beast and the best, the grey and black contrast betw...

Re: 11 or 12?

I stopped buying a 11mtr, as it seemed just to gutless compared to the same make 12mtr, this was true for my North and Fone kites, it may be only 1 mtr but the feel is very noticable, if your into boosting and average weight then the 12 will please more often, as the wind is more often lacking espec...

Re: Need suggestions for repairing a carbon fiber wing

Looks like the wing was made in two parts and have split on the seam. Just put a bit of epoxy in the crack and clamp the two parts together again, wipe off the excess. For a stronger result you can put some reinforcement over the seam. Either glass or carbon or maybe even aramid if you want toughne...

Re: Kanaha Shapes review and other intermediate musings

I have a 120cm J Shapes carbon board. I have found the best value is in getting custom made bags. Our custom bag makers cost a little more than the generic cheap bag, and a bit less than the premium bags from the big brands. When I got my 120cm board I used an old Dakine TT bag. It worked just fine...

Re: Swimming Is The Best Exercise....

I have found that due to being able to be out on the water 3 times more often due to me taking up hydrofoiling, i needed to take up some sort of serious regular exercise to build my core strength and samina along with general suppleness, not to mention loosing a bit of weight. After 13 months of reg...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

Do you attach your leash to the front of your board? Intuitively attaching to the rear feels like it might make it more likely to breach following a fall. Interested to hear what experiences you have with that. only to the rear of my 2 foil boards, never to the front) The board when being pulled by...
