Foils in KOTA?

After seeing dudes like Adam Whittington ride there is no doubt that one can boost much higher riding a hydrofoil than a twintip in similar conditions. To this end I'd love to see if a foiler in the KOTA could break the 100 ft mark. Would anyone else like to see a hydrofoil freestyler compete?

Re: Oldest person to do powered handlepasses tricks?

I'm turning 40 and can do some basic handle passes like the blind judge, back mobe, and getting close to the KGB and 313.

Re: Early May Caribbean Spots w Great Wind?

Early May Caribbean Spots w Great Wind?

My wife has given me a week away from the family to take a kite trip the first week of May and I was wondering in early may what places in the Caribbean have the most consistent wind & flat water?

Right now I'm looking at Honduras, but can go anywhere

Thanks for the intel

Will kites in 2020 be drastically different?

Will kites in 2020 be drastically different from today's kites? What are your thoughts? It seems like aerodynamic tweaking has plateaued.



IMO I think kites will largely be the same but might be 30% lighter due to canopy fabric changes. Maybe standardized bars too?

Re: The Blind Judge 5 Challenge. Episode 2: The Big Crash

I'm 40 and wish I could do half of those tricks. Also had knee injuries in past so am done with boots. Nice work! Your vid inspires me to learn the slim chance.
