Re: Will Kite Foiling ever be relaxing?

asking foiling to be relaxing is like asking sleep to be invigorating.

Re: Hot days; bad for kiting!

"We have had an all time record of nearly ...."

just pointing out a pet peeve of mine. weather records have been kept for only a few hundred years, the planet is approx. 4.5 billion years old. when anyone says something is an all time record, they're either lying or ignorant.

Re: Light Wind (10-15 knots) Gear

92kgs and less than 15 knots says: go kite foiling. many of my friends are a lot lighter than me and they're having fun in such conditions, but after a year of winging, i know if it's under 15 knots, winging just isn't worth it.

Re: Winging and Self Rescue

some keep saying 'use the wing' to help you get back. if there is no wind anymore, the wing is only a burden, not a help. The wind dies. Then it might come back again. If you deflate your wing, ... i wasn't suggesting deflating the wing. i would never do that out there. i was just responding to tho...

aerogel in foil boards

i came across this when searching for highly buoyant materials: "Now, scientists have created a new type of aerogel that is inspired by the feet of the water strider. The material is reportedly so buoyant, that a boat made from one pound (454 grams) of it could carry about 1,000 pounds (454 kg) of c...

Re: wainman 3.1 9m (2016) any opinions?

the rabbits were the best kites for wave/boost combo i've ever used. the smoke (9m) was fast for a 9m. i used mine till they all died from old age. the one thing they didn't excel at was going upwind. but i still have never found a kite that suited me more than the rabbit lineup, though as others ha...

Cons:
-Has one-pump which is bad for wings as the tubing can get knocked off causing a massive deflate and you can't fine tune the pressures.
just curious....are there any non-one pump wings out there?
