Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

I agree, have flown several different 2017/2018 wave kites (drifter, neo, wave) and they all feel huge/horrible. I think 12m is just too big for a wave kite which is intentionally designed to be somewhat inefficient (one of the reasons they "drift") and have large flat wingtips.

Re: Stem Cell Treatment for Shoulder?

Wow what a thread. I am an academic M.D. and do basic science research as well including with "stem cells", of which there are many types. No-one is really harvesting "stem cells" from embryos anymore because it is time-consuming, quasi-unethical, and almost always unnecessary now that we know about...

Re: One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

I do both but with different boards, high volume 5'4" custom board for surfing and very thin low volume 4' board for kiting. Surf is going to be 35+ liters volume, which is weird for kiting although you could easily use it. Kite-foiling is best with a solid board kind of like a skimboard with a foil...

Re: Launching solo

But the key is finding an empty beach. You shouldn't do this on crowded beaches.

Re: Launching solo

I self launch and land all the time. You just pull on one line and the kite rotates and then launches. Works great. To land I either try and maneuver it to fall leading edge down or if that won't work or its too windy I bring it to the side of the window and do single line flag on the front lower li...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Just ordered a 2018 9m ultra for foiling and downwinders in the waves, will post review after I receive it and get a few sessions in.

Re: old fart round the world tour

Whatever you do, please learn to hydrofoil before you leave! This will DRASTICALLY change your trip for the better, I would estimate opening up ~50% more kite days/spots and you will be obsessed with it especially if you are old and want to sail around having a blast and it's quite challenging so th...

Re: biggest regret purchase

- 2010 LF Havoc, super heavy and barely can go upwind. - "Sport" bluetooth headphones (water resistant), didn't last a single session. - 18m Slingshot Fuel probably from 2004, hardly flew since it was so heavy and when it did fly it flew exactly as you would expect... - Slider rope. Never installed ...

Re: Switch Lineup

Given size to weight etc, what is the best H3 for lowest end wind foiling, 10m or 12m?

Re: Airush Lithium opinions

Definitely get the Airush, it is similar in quality and performance to North (high quality and great performance), and both are usually high cost as well so you are in luck.
