Re: weed fins for surfboard

The makani fins look pretty big at 4.7”/12cm and have extra area/less concave trailing edge. Never tried them but look interesting...

Re: Portugal Fuseta or Peniche

Portugal is great fun to visit, I was lucky to go to peniche/baleal area a few years ago. Went in fall while surf contest was on, kept looking for smaller waves, paddling out into "looks like head high" that turned out bigger. Didn't get a lot of wind, 4 sessions in 9 days I think. It was sort of be...

Re: If you had to re-buy all your kites tomorrow, what would you get?

I’d probably get clouds again, 4.8, 6.2 and 10.4.
90% of my riding is in 8-20 knots, foil or directional.

Re: (almost) tool-less foil setups

That naish system looks smart! Ketos has only one screw for board:mast and mast:fuselage, 2 screws each for wings. Only one tool is needed, supplied with the foil: https://www.ketos-foil.com/925-large_default/cle-torx-double-ketos-t30t25.jpg Before they switched to torx screws, the tool had only one...

Re: Virginia Beach

Its ok. The wind is not super reliable. If there is a sea breeze pattern or some NE weather coming through the beaches can be good. Beaches can be crowded at times. The resort area (downtown oceanfront roughly) is not for kiting. There are spots within 30-60’ for west and southwest wind. VA beach do...

Re: What makes a good strapless kite

Yes. Board is key, start with a big board, like 6’ x 20” round or fish outline. Even if you go with a tomo or similar blunt shape, use a bigger one. Don’t go for the 4’10” or 5’1” models unless you are tiny. Use a quad fin setup to make upwind and jibes easier to learn. For kite size, use a kite tha...

Re: Problems with the struts

Open the valves. If your slingshot kites are like my old ones, the pinch valves on the tubing between PE and struts are probably covered with little neoprene sleeves. Maybe not obvious if you are used to a different system. You can move the covering and inspect the valves to mke sure they’re really ...

Not that it necessarily makes it your fault at all.
