There are wings out there which are much more flexible and just don't work in light wind, and also flex when you try to go hard into the wind and drop you off the back of the board.
Could you name them please?
Thanks!

Re: Vertigo while Kiting?

Re: Pocket board building

I would recommend only using catbon on top of board (tension skin) and only glass on bottom surface (compression skin). But it is not allways that the top of the board is only under tension, is it? I heard of many reports that the board broke while hitting the water hard at tuchdowns. In this case ...

Re: Levitaz Cruizer fastners

What kind of a torque spanner are you using? Thanks! A friend has a maybe pretty old one for his Levitaz with the form of a ratchet spanner but very small and without any moving parts, but not sure if stainless.

Re: Levitaz Cruizer fastners

Hi Herman, I use Cruizer and other Levitaz wings since they exist, about 100 times a year and 10% in salt water, jumping a lot and change or open wings screws every 1 - 10th sessions. Since 3 years since I use torx screws and a torque spanner I have no problems with loosening or hard to loose screw...
