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...

Re: too light to drift downwind?

Mate, which boards are less than 2kg? the light boards I have seen all around 2.5 kg. Yes this problem of a board sitting on a side, is real and been discussed. It's quite common with Onda wing as it is very light and floaty wing.. just refuses to sink. i had the same problem with moses onda 633. bu...

Re: Does board volume still matter for water starts?

If you don't touch down during transitions, you almost don't need volume with large wing like Onda. There is also a difference during the re-launch of the kite in the water. (when you need to sit on the board) and during self-rescue if you use the board to float yourself and your kite (especially fo...

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

I hear you about 4 bolts, but if one has an off-the shelve foil, you don't have that choice to have 4 screws. So we either take the risk of ruining the mast or wait till monofoil specific mast/fuse comes out.. Or use cheap aluminum gear for mono-foil, where you don't care if something breaks. But th...

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

Hey Sergio, You recommend just forget to attach the stab. I have a question about the leverage force created by removing the stab on the fuselage bolts: I have Onda, so what happens to the forces applied to the screws that hold fuselage to the mast? what happens to the inserts?. I understand that th...
