Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

It's mental. If you have the motivation, the pain is fun.
Ever try skateboarding? Foiling is easy and painless compared.

Re: 2019 Cab double agent

I looked at it online. Really nice looking. I'd be concerned about a few things. The longest mast is 85cm. They should be offering 70 and 90-95. It's a compromise they offer. The wing construction is basalt fiber with plastic perimeter. I'd be worried about those materials holding together over time...

Re: Foil board as directional? Anyone tried it?

You can't fit a 120cm foilboard in there too?

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

Mr. HOLY -O RAM airs when packing them up are rolled THEN folded in 2 or 3 to fit in the bag When you put your kite on the sand beach it is folded You then unfold it and unroll it flat on the sand Tubes have to be pumped fully before it is launched That's why the ram airs have to be fully filled up...

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

I was at work the other day. A guy I know says " hej Tom, you still kiting? ". I get this pious look and say " you bet !" and show him a video of me foiling. He says" Holy shite!, you're like a combination of Steve Jobs and Laird Hamilton!! ". I laughed and said, " well that's a stretch, but foiling...

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

Hej, I'm in same situation. But can add that I often kite alone or there's no one to help launch. Foil set up is basically the same time as LEI. But then I just hook in back up and go. No hunting for help( if there is any), or doing a teather set-up that I'd have to set up. So I save time. Landing a...

All of these are rigged so kite has very slight backstall att full power with trim at full power. In that position the kite falls back slowly and then s...
