I can't sleep the night before a day of kiting. It seriously sucks! Too amped to ride and really restless nights leaves me tired before the day even starts.
Same with powder days snowboarding.
Me too. Any cure?

I‘m struggling to decide what would be a better 2 kite UFO quiver for Foil/Surf:

9m + 7m, 9m + 5m or 7m + 5m?

80kg
12-16knots = 80%
16-24knots = 18%
24knots = 2%
9 and 5
9 from 12 knots to 16
5 from 16 to 23
I use 3 kites to cover this range

Re: Turbulence while riding

Sounds like waves traveling through water is affecting lift/drag. Try smooth conditions and you'll notice the difference. Your brain will soon learn to automatically compensate so it'll be less annoying

Re: Review: Liquid Force Orb (foilboard)

Thanks Peter.
So what is the difference in construction between those cheap surfboards that I often see that are very fragile (the Orb reminds me of those in feel of the outer layer) and the bombproof kite surfboards?

Re: Review: Liquid Force Orb (foilboard)

It's the first fiberglass kitefoil board I saw, very fragile comparing to kite surfboards and foil boards. Weight, yes, was probably known before purchase but the title of the post is Review so 'heavier than competition' is a valid review. It costs like Kanaha Shapes and weighs about than 60% more a...

It's odd that they have a lot of rocker in the Galaxy and almost no rocker in the Orb.
