Re: I made a tool for turning Garmin/Strava GPX tracks in to polars diagrams

Do you prefer the dotted line over the the top of the existing plot more than just having two plots side-by-side? Yeah, I like to be able to plot them on top of eachother for a direct comparison. What speeds show up on the plot? Are these instantaneous or average over a certain amount of time? Than...

Re: I made a tool for turning Garmin/Strava GPX tracks in to polars diagrams

That is exactly what I've been looking for! Thanks!!!! I used to use the GPS Action Replay program, but for some reason I've never been able to get it to work on my new computer. If you're looking for other things to add, the only other thing GPS Action Replay had was the ability to plot two GPX fil...

Re: AV8 Teaser - Cabrinha

It uses a Pro Box, which is wider than Tuttle and stiffer as a result. Powerbox is a windsurfing conical box with a single screw. WTF! another box entering the scene? Will there be an adaptor for plate mount? The board looks interesting Oops! I meant pro box. Pro box isn't new, it has been used by ...

Re: AV8 Teaser - Cabrinha

Dave- making F2B this year? This one is based off George's foil. Think he designed it, no? Any idea if its the same shape, less stiff due to the modulus of the carbon? near identical? He seems to be really really dialed in with his new stuff. Yup I'll be there! They couldn't use high modulus carbon...

Re: AV8 Teaser - Cabrinha

Kitefoil racing is essentially all at the Grand Prix level. I think it depends on where you go. We have a few regattas on the US East Coast every year with 20-30 racers and no one is pro level. You can get a decent full race setup used for under $6000 that will hold most of it's value for the next ...

Re: R1 V2 windrange and weight

like here from people who have used R1 V2 and ideally those who used both kites, Sonic 2 is also a considered but prices still too high untill sonic 3 comes out Cheers In the US, a used Sonic 2 almost half the price of a used R1V2. I just switched my whole quiver from Sonic 2's to R1V2's. I kept lo...

Re: Best pumping foil?

I heard from someone that tried many surf foils that the Delta Surf Foil is the easiest to pump (least effort to pump a given distance). It's a really big wing, but it's not very thick, so drag is less than the other surf wings which are quite thick. I had also heard it can be trickier to stay on a ...

Re: Shimming a tuttle box

Where do you put the aluminum can shim? Wrap it around over the top, or wrap it around the front?
