Re: question for ex-Wainman kite riders

I have a Smoke 9 and Mr Green 7.5.
The 9 is so awesome that few months ago I replaced it by another one I found on the second hand market.

Love these kites but they have one big downside. They suck at going upwind. I don't think I can find a kite with worse upwind capabilities.

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

Hi all, Few months ago I purchased a Gong foil board. Catch 3CS 4.6 and Pro Wing M. The board looks solid but I am concerned about how easily the surface gets scratched. Unlike other boards I have from other brands, the surface of the Catch is porous and without a glossy finish. It scratches with mi...

Naish Pivot or Dash?

Hi all, I need to replace my current kite and the two candidates are the Pivot 10 and Dash 10. My style is mainly freeride (boosting) and wave riding (side-on). This year I started hydrofoiling. From the reviews I've read the Pivot looks like the perfect match. However I like fast and responsive kit...

Re: Foilholio wants to destroy kiteforum - any help to stop him appreciated

Preventing users (not bots) from spamming in KF is not an easy task. As someone said before, I recommend you to demand a phone number on all sign ups and send an authentication code. Services like Twilio only charge $0.09 per successful authentication. Once you detect the s**ker you can ban his phon...

Re: Can someone advice me on gong foils?

Hi there,
I recently bought a Gong Freewave (M Pro). I am a beginner and after 2 sessions I realized the 90cm mast was too large for learning. I ordered a 65cm mast.
They are very cheap (59€), so I highly recommend you to buy them If you purchase a complete setup.

Re: Should Toby start a crowdfunding to save KF?

A crowdfunding payment may work once but don't expect the users to pay regularly. If you want your users to pay more often you have to offer them something in return. Access to exclusive content, offers, a t-shirt, etc.

Take a look at Patreon profiles, the more you pay the more you get.

Regards!

Re: Gong kites reviews and tests

I was tempted to buy a Gong kite for hydrofoiling but they are heavy (compared to other lightwind kites)...
Strutless 10m weighs 2,7 Kg
Unik 10.2m weighs 2,9kg

Is this extra weight noticeable?
