Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

The whole part about the kites contributions, or lack there of, to being able to surface gybe on the Hydrofoil is actually irrelevant. Kyle, you have to keep your kite lower in transitions, it's your technique. Ok granted, The Soul compensated for poor Hydrofoiling / kiting technique. Thing is, you'...

Re: Xcel Drylock X 5/4 hooded - the best one?

I have been using ripcurl flashbomb 5-3 several years. Bought a xcel 5-6 drylock with integrated hood this fall and used it all winter, about 10-12 times now. Water is 2-6c air 2-10c. It's really warm, comfortable in use. A bit difficult to get over and off shoulders, but there's a specific techniqu...

Re: Welcome To California - No Kitesurfing

We have had same kind of debate and restrictions, but kite group lobbied and managed to get some leeway. The regional authorities pointed to unscientific opinions of self-proclaimed bird experts that the kites disturbed the birds food foraging resulting in starvation. There were no studies carried o...

Re: all my kites, all valves delaminating

It's a global glue rebellion. The side view mirrors on my car fell off both sides within days of each other. The mirror glass fell off after the glue said " I give up, this isn't fair, it's a witch hunt and I'm not going to take it anymore ".

Re: Pocket board building

Stevez,

How did you build it? Is it hollow with span wize rib/spacers? Then you put in Cork rails?
It looks really ghetto. But what the heck, if it works, then that's what matters!
That one you should call the lunch tray or the cutting board...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I've learned that in light winds foil kites behave well when kept between 11 and 1300. Lower down, a shift or lull, the top tip might want to fold down. This is kind of opposite of a lei.

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

Going to explode this year and next in Sweden. I'm now foiling up towards the Tt and Surfboards at the the main launch, from my favourite launch that is 1km downwind. Riding small waves they can't reach upwind. Now they see me and another 2-3 guys regularly. Sometimes we are ripping around at 30km/h...

Re: All my new gear arrived! The only problem is ...

That's a beautiful set up! Italian quality and engineering at its best! Way cheaper than a Lamborghini! I'm still curious why the 683s instead of 633. ( I have wing envy) We are up here at 55N. Been having great winter. Down to 2+2C. Xcel drylock 6-5 with integrated hood, 7mm drylock boots, 3mm nook...
