Re: 71cm wide wingboard, can you still paddle it well when lying on it or is it too wide?

If your shoulders are narrow and arms short, it may not work.
Otherwise it sounds worth a try, especially for reasonable distances.
Maybe find a narrow SUP or an old windsurfer same width and try it, or mock up something on land?

Re: Stringer in small foilbord?

I made my ~144 x 49 x 2.3ish cm convertible foil/surf directional entirely of corecell A500 lammed with staggered layers of 6oz carbon twill similar to what tomw shows and hit 3kg on the mark. That includes up to 5 layers where the foil attaches and 4 futures finboxes for surface riding, but no trac...

I would not put more than 1/2 atm pressure or vacuum on it. Full vac is too much.

Re: Kiting with some horses

The horses are wild and endangered/protected.
If a ranger saw someone harassing them they would go to jail and/or pay large fines.
Don’t do this.

Re: Solo hot launching a tube kite

Something I am trying with Clouds as they can be interesting to self launch. Lay the kite on its back directly downwind, leading edge towards you. Weight the kite with sand on the canopy just behind the leading edge, enough so the kite won’t drag. Hook in and tighten the rear lines, bringing the ki...

Re: Anyone have experience with Takoon gear?

They look abraded by rubbing/cutting on a rough surface. Lines are strong but fragile to abrasion.
If production defect, lame.

Experienced kiter or new kiter?
