Re: How long is too long

Seems that above 115 cm the loss of stiffness starts to outweighs the benefits

Re: Gong pro MT first impression

I think that's about right for shipping a small parcel across the Atlantic. I was looking at a Hipe and a Foil, shipping quote was 275 Euros to US. I tried paying in Euros again with no luck. I don't really understand why they keep cancelling my order. Oh well, I give up, I'm going to buy something...

I had this problem (from Uk). There was an option to Pay in Euros or GBP. GBP didn’t work, Euros did.
Thanks! I think I had tried to pay in euros one of the times, but that might have been the same time that the items in stock changed by the time I paid. I'll give paying in Euros another try.

Re: Gong pro MT first impression

Sorry off topic, but has anyone in the US been able to order from Gong successfully recently? I keep putting in an order, they send me a shipping quote, I put in my credit card info, get an error and they cancel my order. No where on the website to contact them it seems for this issue. Is it just me...

Re: small race kites in high wind

I would never go back to inflatables for under 20 knots, but over 20 knots I've had a lot of trouble with race foil kites.The bridles whip around and tangle themselves up in seconds. If the kite doesn't fully inflate on launch, you get ripped down the beach trying to backstall it. If the bridles do ...

Re: SP80 - 80 Knot Goal By Foiled Kiteboat

I've seen this shared a lot, but the whole design makes no sense to me. Why would the connection for the kite be so far aft? The forces just don't line up. How do you launch a giant foil kite (20m-50m) in heavy winds for a boat that can only go one direction? Sailrocket 2 noted that the wing sail wa...

True, from 25 knots a 3 m2 is too big for the average weights...
Do you go to shorter lines for higher winds? For race foilers now, 11m kite is no problem in 25 knots, but on 10m-12m lines. Or do you prefer to stick with long lines to take the smallest kite possible?

Re: Any interest in eeeeee foils?

Green hat had a few videos of the Waydoo recently. They said it has about the same run time, about the same weight as the lift, a little less refined, but less than half the price. I agree, looks fun, I'd like to try it, but not planning to buy one.

Re: Race foil strapless

Tk. Wow. You got connections? That seems like overkill for me. Ill be using my hyperlinks..... No need for connections anymore to get a Mikes Lab! There are dozens of used Bullet 3's available right now on the kiteracing2hand facebook group. There was a used one listed yesterday for $2000 which loo...

Re: Flysurfer is going to beat fishnets? (Release of VMG2)

I’ve been flying my new VMG2 18 and 13 is some very average conditions here in Perth over the last few weeks and I can say I love the performance. Thanks for the review! Can you self land the kite by backstalling? The VMG2 manual says you can't, because it can damage the kite. I asked flysurfer dir...
