Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

Although not so many riders, most of the advertising and sponsoring monies go there!
I guess it is more photogenic

What is the Vegas vs other North kites ratio at your spots?
And how does it compared to the "favorite" kite of these guys?

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

A picture is a thousand words! Regis many many thanks for your drawings and explanations. One of the most useful posts in this site! I understand that playing with the Z line has 2 advantages for someone that does not want to mess around a lot. 1) adjusts both B&C proportionally at once. 2) looks ea...

Kite is also lifting you up reducing the weight the foil has to support!!

In Fluid mechanics there is no stall speed, there is only stall angle of attack.

Re: Top speed of a Moses 633 SUP wing combo (the Onda)

Stall is not a function of speed. Stall happens at a certain angle of attack. What is meant above is that at that speed, you need such a high angle of attack to support your weight (minus the kite lift) that this angle of attack is critical - stalls. I assume that gunnar said 82kg meaning no kite su...

Re: Switch Lineup

Yes, I think the new 7m-12m Helium 3 is essentially a refined and lightened evolution of the Element 5. Both have a similar aspect ratio but the helium is flatter giving a higher projected area per size which I think is a good thing for foil/wave. How does a flatter shape affect turning speed and p...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

well It took me flipping ages to learn how to surface ride, I found it so difficult just to get up on the board, twin tip sailing for 18 years ensured I got it completely wrong on the foil for two sessions, I had to get an experienced foiler to shout out advice on the 2nd day of trying, this helped...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

"Learning how to surface ride" should be like the first 2 hours of your very first session. If you're posting on the internet about your difficulties learning to surface ride a hydrofoil, you don't know how to kiteboard, lol. It took me way more than 2 hrs just to manage to position the board and t...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Yes, before flying you should be able to surface ride.
Therefore its a key skill. Without this key, you don't unlock the next level.

While surface riding the foil generates lift. Not enough to hover you but it still trains the muscle memory up to a certain extend.
