Yes, kicking feet is a problem.. Good reminder to carry a knife. I have been caught up with fishing lines but never a net. With the fishing lines I found I could body drag around so long as I kept my body streamlined and parallel to the surface. As soon as I tried to stop to free the foil I would ta...

Re: Perils of foil caught in a fishing net

Yes. Kicking to stay afloat. "It occured to me later, that solution for a kite was probably quite simple.. I could have dropped the kite on downwind side of the net and attach a chicken loop to the net itself!!" good idea. Why did you get getting your feet tangled? Were you kicking with your legs to...

Perils of foil caught in a fishing net

Wanted to have a discussion on techniques of self-rescue / foil rescue when getting caught in a fishing net while hydro-foiling. While the topic is a bit fringe, it is a real issue, especially in Asia, where we often kite in less explored parts of world or locations where fishing is still a way of l...

Re: smooth landing with hydrofoil.

Thank you Tipi,

Very useful advise. I tried following yesterday. Getting better at no touch-down landings, but still will take a few more sessions to figure it out.

Re: Peter Lynn Nova

I flew 10M Nova on the beach yesterday for about 5 mins in 12-13 knots of wind. First quick impressions: 1. I could NOT stall this kite with a bar being pulled in all the way. Not in powered , not in depowered trim position. It was just sitting at 12 not back stalling as normal foil kites do. It is ...

There is a lot of info on inflatables, but its hard to find good expert level material for foil kites. Thank you in advance, Please record and post more vid...

Re: setting up foil kite in the water

Most people who come here instead of Facebook are people who been kiting for 10 years+. this site is THE ONLY place for real kitesurfing discussions and experience sharing . Videos like this are PRICELESS! Really amazing what one can learn...
