Re: tahoedirk

I bought a ooznest cnc , 1000x1500mm, but have been so wrapped up in hand-built that ive only got it to commissioning stage. Still have to set up my spindle and spoil board.
People keep asking me to build pocket boards and lots of wing repairs.

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

Azoele, I would suppose if you are happy with L Pro, then the Veloce L would be equivalent. For me the M Pro and Veloce M are equivalent. I don't feel any significant loss of low end. Just a bit more aggressive with kite on start, a bit more downwind the first 2 seconds and it pops right up. I can f...

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

Anders, I never used the Veloce stab with the m pro, and now I've sold the m pro and kite+ surf stab. But Veloce stab with veloce m wing is never washing out. It grips, drives and glides great. Azoele, The m pro definitely has different start and stall behavior than the 633. When I transferred from ...

Re: 4 weeks kitesurfing in September - Corona

I live in Southern Sweden. Been windsurfing and kiting here since 2001. September can be good. Its all frontal low pressure winds. Easterly wind is rare in September. Might get NE then SE coast is great. Generally westerly or SW. Wind is wildly variable, from 6 to 15+ m/s. The only spots id say that...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

as I understand it, LF will get out of kite, and kiteboard ( non hydrofoiling) business?
I wish more companies would act like flysurfer, ozone, and core and stop year on year releases. I think Slingshot was going to do that ? Or was it Ocean Rodeo...

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

The 40cm kite stab has 218 cm2, the 40 cm surf stab 232 cm2. Mainly the surf stab has anhedral and thicker profile. Yes, surf stab is a bit slower, but it grips and drives in powered and fast carves. The kite stab washes and slides for me. Yes kite stab is more agile, but the washing out wasn't nice...

I built one 106x43 board as Merl did but the foam was 55 kg/m'3. Holds my 90 kg nice. Weighs 1750g with Eva pad. Maybe 80 kg foam is overkill?
Whats your laminate schedule?

Re: Pocket board building

The 80kg foam I use costs 28€ per board. Because I'm buying small quantity. Thin paulonia not available. I'm trying to import from China. Balsa is nice, still build that way, but it sucks water and disintegrates on water absorption. Using 18mm paulonia from bauhaus would mean milling down to thin th...

Re: I'm not convinced (but want to be)

I gotta admit. Yesterday i was out kitefoiling. It was a bit "mowing the lawn". So please keep the advice on learning coming. Yesterday would have been perfect learning conditions.... My plan was to use my 100cm gong carbon mast and buy XL Pro wing set. ( 78-80 kg depending on beer consumption). Its...
