I’d say Ghost is easier to relaunch than SST
Yes, it is easier with the Ghost.
The SST relaunch is very good if the wind is strong enough. If not I often use reverse launch. That works really well with them.

Re: Strapless jumps, backrols...

Is small wing or big wing a better choice for practice? Especially in the landing phase! Also how much kite power and lift? I am pretty new at strapless jumping with my 108 pocket board. At normal small jumps I had the best chance to land it when I landed with the stabi first. I thought that might ...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Had da great ride today! I am still pretty stoked ;-) What a great feeling. As advised, I put the SS Space Skate wing in front of the mast (90 cm) and put the foil as far back in the board as possible. It felt great like that! With the big wing it was not that hard, too. The wind was so light that i...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Yeah I know. I will. Just thought I could save some time by picking the probably right position for the combo. Hope to try this week.

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Thanks for your input guys! That's what I thought, too. So, I will change the fuselage position on the mast to get the wing in front of the mast and see how it works. I can't wait :-)

Re: Preferred line lenght for wave/freeride hydrofoil?

For the last two years or so I used 20 m lines for foiling and Surfboard (5-10m). Now Frank Rosin has made me curious about shorter lines. I would like to stick to one bar for everything. Maybe try 17m or so first and see how it goes.
