Re: Duotone 2021

The 2018 and older click bars had an additional piece at the ring end that effectively kept the stopper in place. It was removed in 2019 I don’t think it is just the line moving when not under load because this issue existed when it didn’t move. I do notice that keeping sand out and cleaning does pr...

Re: Foil board deck pads

Just an update, cork.

I kept wearing out the RS pro hexatraction plastic so I have gone to cork.

It appears it will last longer has the right grip and looks ok

Re: Duotone 2021

One more thing I have noticed, but not sure about is how the tube and the cab is aligned. Looking at the cab the hole / metal ring is exactly in the center. Looking at the tube it is much more side aligned. That was a very in depth look and this misalignment may indeed be a big reason foe the wear....

Re: Advise on using Cabrinha Drifter for light wind kite foiling

Drifters are perfectly fine for foiling.

I don’t think It would be my first choice if buying it only for foiling but it makes a great dual use surf and foil kite.

Re: Stitches and hydrofoils

I can assure you these do work. Slide them under your wetsuit. Shin and/or forearm. As far as I can tell my reaction is to block with my shin and forearm when something comes at me. I protect my body and head by instinct. I admit I don’t wear them on my forearms anymore but I’d do go through a spell...

Dude... shin guards !?
absolutely and put them on your forearm like gauntlets underneath your wetsuit. Protect your ulna.

After the second time I drew blood on my shin, I stopped by a sports store and bought shin guards.

I have a friend who is using shoe insoles.

Re: Stitches and hydrofoils

I’m sure a lot of folks on here have watched the rise and fall of all the wind sports. Has anyone noticed a higher incidence of injuries with hydrofoils? A friend just got some stitches and he is one of the best Kiter’s I know. He never got hurt in 15 years of kiting like a maniac on a twin tip. Ha...

Re: Duotone 2021

It is what it is Mass898, its loaded That's not the way we get innovation into our products :wink: but tbh I can't see how they could do it differently. It's loaded to allow for the line to rotate itself back after loops/rolls. The change provided by Evan (invented by Foil) seems like a real good s...
