Re: Learning 180 after mastering 360

My foot pump into the 180 is much larger than when doing a 360. This tends to throw you forward and centred over the board for the exit. I also look way over my shoulder during a 360, continuing the turn, but just back the other way during a 180. Airsail, Interesting that you mention a foot pump. T...

Re: Learning 180 after mastering 360

Normal or down loop?
Normal (up) loop is more of a 270

Think this video explane it very well
They do kind of 270 degrees as they head downwind with a kiteloop and then continue to the other direction.

Re: Learning 180 after mastering 360

Just do it. Once I cracked the 360, the tack to toeside came easy enough. Medium powered, flattish water... Biggest thing is “standing up” in what would be the middle of a 360 — instead of continuing to drive the board around back to the original election, drive it just past upwind then let your bo...

Learning 180 after mastering 360

Hi, I want to learn 180 upwind transition (to toe side) now after I mastered the 360 upwind transition with kiteloop. Any tips on how to convert my 360 to 180? What are the differences? What should I start with? Kiteloop? Downloop? Down stroke? I didn't find a good instructional 180 video except for...

Re: Where to shim?

I ended up adding 2 1mm plastic discs in the rear bolt of the stab. It reduced front foot pressure significantly and made the foil more alive and less draggy. I don't feel any drawbacks. Thanks everyone

Re: Where to shim?

corrected my recommendation, thanks to flying grandpas next post You mean you put a shim under the front screw of your front wing? This makes the lift go a bit towards the back, right? Wouldn't it increase the drag? As your wing is on the downside of fuselage you would have to add the shim behind t...

Re: Where to shim?

I simply shim in: 4. Front wing - fuselage connection. This reduces front pressure, improves pitch agility a bit, reduces max speed a bit. Usually there is no need for other adjustments (1; 2 or 3) You mean you put a shim under the front screw of your front wing? This makes the lift go a bit toward...
