Re: Chubanga v2 2019

Thanks for the updates!

My current board has the tuttle 23cm from the tail. Would that really make much of a difference once foiling as long as the footstraps are in the right spot?

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

Even Nico Parlier still has a trim line, so I guess I don't feel bad keeping mine ;)

I guess you were on long lines, correct?
Nah, I'm on 13m lines with 15m kite. I just cant get the right body position going hard upwind without pulling the depower a few inches.

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

Gunnar had a video recently that showed he doesn't have a trim setup on his 21m R1V3 for racing. He said he wasn't using the trim, so he took it off. The next session I tried to not use the trim and didn't work for me at all! I definitely need some trim to go upwind with a powered kite (e.g. 15m in ...

did he sell things off?
I dont think so. He's in the video. Although maybe he's just a foil model now :D

Re: Gear for going fast

In less than 10 knots, I think the foil kite does give you faster speeds. The windier it gets, the less benefit you get from a foil kite. The other benefit from foil kites is it floats you better through transitions.

Re: Levitaz bionic vs Moses Comet?

Moses comets are a good deal used ($1200) and pretty fast. I think used is the only reasonable way to go. Race gear loses its value so fast. Unless you are at the top, you dont need new gear. I've never ridden either myself, but I've talked to someone who had both the comet and bionic. (For what it'...

Re: Are fast foil wings dead outside of racing?

I would love to race (I like sailboat racing), but I need to learn transitions first. I’m hoping to get a surf wing to help w that. I hear this a lot. No need to have your transitions nailed to race. There will be other guys who cant do transitions at the race, so you will be able to race them. Whe...

Re: Champions Poised to Retain Crowns Despite Intense Pressure at KiteFoil Worlds, Italy Day Four

The IKA Formula thing does not seem to be working to cut costs. Gear costs seem to be going up 30% per year. For kites, it seems like the top riders just have to get two sets of kites to race in Formula events and open events (e.g. a quiver of Sonic Race for Formula events and a quiver of Sonic VMG ...
