Re: New Pansh vs used Ozone / Flysurfer

The genesis model looks interesting as basic foil kite for use freerideing on hydrofoil.
I'd be interested in hearing about anyone using the 6 or 5m and
how it flies, wind range.
I have a hyperlink 7m and a concept air 4,5m there's a bit of gap between the two. Thinking a 6m.

Re: GoPro line mounts

So I plan to use the protective lenses next time, and can probably prevent fogging by putting it higher in the lines. Just wondering if other max users have encountered the same problem. The fogging is because of condensation from the warm camera and cool outside air. GoPros with cases fog up and t...

Re: Flotation

I wear a full wetsuit, helmet, and 50N pfd with emergency marine flashing light I can turn on. I'd never go out without this gear. I even wear the this gear without the wetsuit foiling in Brazil. I had an incident 2 years ago using my LEI kite. Long story short, in side shore conditions, 4c water, 6...

Re: have you guys watched this, its sure to give you a heart attack

The last Americas cup in Bermuda used real time velocity, vmg, virtual moving finish lines, multiple one board cameras and course markers in live footage. It really made it exciting. It would be awesome to have these in kite racing. I'd like to see better "on board" camera like both head mounted and...

Simon I have used the new gong fsp 2x 4.6 last monday for the first time and I did nothing with the screw. But I was also wondering where is that screw exactly for.

Re: Gong Std or Pro to start

I was riding a moses 633 wing 2 years and that's a great learning wing. Then I switched to the gong pro m. The low speed limit is negligible. Stability the same. Should be easy to learn on it. The rise must be even slower than the moses 633. Personally I would go for the pro m as a beginner unless y...

Re: Plywood Foil Board

Building is always better than thinking, but to give some constructive critism. The negative part of using plywood as skins over foam is that usually plywood is 3 layers. the middle layer is 90 degrees to needed stiffness- and is adding a lot of weight with only marginal or no longitudinal stiffnes...
