Re: What got you into Hydrofoiling?

1) Kiting in 10-15mph winds and having a blast!

2) The feeling of riding deep powder but in boardshorts!

3) New challenge and great for exploration at high speed

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

No but it's definitely declining. Wakestyle is analogous to snowboarding, for some reason it's not as "cool" anymore and skiing is making a huge comeback

Re: Kitesurfing NYC/NJ/CT

Pros: Much better wind and waves than south florida. With modern wetsuit technology you can easily kite all year comfortably no problem. Lots more 'culture' than south florida in NYC. Cons: The scenery is much worse, the water brownish and usually cold, and the cost of living insanely expensive comp...

Re: Best kite specific 3/2 wetsuit

Try on the newest and best Rip Curl flashbomb and then the newest and best Oneill Hyperfreak and buy the one that fits you. Those are the best wetsuits available for surfing/kitesurfing etc, they each fit a different body type though so you have to go to a surf shop and try them on and just buy the ...

Safely self-launch with a line-mount GoPro?

I have a camrig and use it occasionally but only when I have an assist launch. The videos are by far the best you can get with a GoPro. I would like to use it more but I self-launch frequently and it's pretty sketchy self launching with it weighing/tangling on your lines as anyone who has tried know...

Re: Best Kiteboarding new prices - Price revolution

I remember flying the original best Hellfish with the silver fabric that was supposed to be magical. It literally popped and fell from the sky while I was flying it and Shannon was there super embarrassed with tons of excuses. This is the kite that they had videos and claims of people riding twin ti...

Re: Drysuits circa 2018

Get one with pee zipper. I had a mystic drysuit years ago. I think I used it 10-15 times. Inevitably I'd get the thing on, be ready to kite or out there on the water and have to take a pee. What a hassle to get the back zip off and pee. If you don't get a pee zip, then get some sort of front zip so...

Re: Attaching a foil to an old twinny?

I've done it to several boards. Definitely not for learning, bolt to a skim or something bigger with more volume if you are a beginner. Once you have foiling down then bolt it to a TT and put some foam grip on top, works awesome. As stated above, flex is bad so try and use a stiff board. Otherwise j...
