They are very nice fins. I don't use them anymore because I switched to riding soft top surfboards.
curious as to why riding a soft top surfboard would have any effect on weeds and fins?

weed fins for surfboard

our area has been inundated over the last few years with massive amounts of weeds. it makes kiting with a surfboard extremely annoying with constant jumping off to clean off the fins. anyone know of good weed fins for a surfboard, like the old windsurf weed fins (but smaller obviously)? i need thrus...

Re: Neil Pryde Glide Reports/Reviews?

i only use the L front wing with the S stabilizer. it pivots so much better that way. the extra front foot pressure (relative to LF Impulse wing) takes only a few moments to adjust to. but overall, the L front wing is a bit overkill for kiting. mostly i stick with LF Impulse wings, as that setup is ...

Re: The Duotone Wing

Yes yes, this is not as fast or jumps like kitesurfing and it really shouldn’t be in a kiteforum, and it’s not for lots of the frequent snarky posters. You don’t have to stop kiting. I won’t stop kiting in waves. if not in a kiteforum, then where? don't bother to kowtow to the 'snarky posters'. thi...

Re: Kites available in sizes smaller than 4m?

This thread is blowing my mind. I learned on a 17m. After 5 years, and learning to foil, I’ve still never kited with anything smaller than a 12m. yeah, there are some comments here that border on ludicrous. to say a 4m has an upper limit of 20 knots is :rollgrin:. i've been on my 12m plenty of time...

Re: The Duotone wing

What does these wings do anything better than other watersports? Jump? Upwind? Downwind? Surf? Speed? Freestyle? Cruise? Carve? it probably doesn't do better than any of those. but that's not the point. it just might find a niche not covered by any of those. for example, i hang out at a lake part o...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

i tried Kamikuza's method of getting both hips and feet pointing forward, and then just taking a step yesterday. i think that will help in my progression, or lack thereof. the hardest part was getting in that position with my feet. but once there, the step forward and back was fairly easy. gotta kee...
