Re: New Woo jump record: 33.9m

Jumped over the fence in my back yard yesterday, 3.2 meters confirmed by Woo. Am I now the world high jumping champion?

Re: 2020 North Production Problems

So, what's the problem? Unless you are selling plenty of other choices out there.

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

really sounds strange that they try again to bring a foilkite although their designers think that this type of kite is crap.... guess they have seen so many SOULs out there that they could not resist. Flysurfer also make inflatable kites although they think that kind of design is secondary? Guess t...

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

If Duotone wants to produce a foil kite, let it be so, who cares. If it's any good (which it looks so) it will sell.

Regarding the German review looks like the Capa is more similar in design and handling to the F-One Halo. Sporty feeling, faster, more responsive than the Soul, more power per m2.

Re: Jibe technique

I have to disagree with all the above. 1. Area doesn't matter, span does. My 510 high aspect race wing is more stable than my 650 lower aspect wave wing . 2. Good speed (doesn't have to be super fast) gives you better balance than super slow speed , just like when riding a bike. Speed can be a littl...

Re: Fone IC6

So for a beginner, moses onda 633 or fone ic6 850? :) pros and cons I would say yes. I did not learn on either one so I can only speculate but have seen several beginners struggle with the 633. While it is for sure a great wing, there is a lot of lift and not much yaw stability which is great for m...

Re: Wings for Garbage Winds

Obviously some wings are better than others with roll stability.......in fact, on good wind days I will switch over to the 683 with 330 stab.....on the bad days in 30+ garbage winds its back to the 483 stab.... You are assuming everyone here is familiar with the gear you are using. What do the numb...

16 years ??!
Funny how most persons on this forum think kitefoil started 4 or 5 years ago. Carafino started producing production kite foils in 2005 but few of us had home built foils before that. Windsurfers experimented with foils in the 80's...

Re: Fone IC6

I have an IC6 foil and most riders on my spot use them. Very few Moses here maybe 3 or 4.
F-One IC6 is a very easy and versatile foil and can easily be upgraded (carbon wings) or re-fitted as a surf foil, wind foil or surf foil

Re: Wings for Garbage Winds

Not for the coasties who have relatively steady winds.... After a few years of riding Im seeing roll stability being a key factor for foiling in frontal-driven winds (wide-range, punchy, gusty, garbage winds) Obviously the 633 type surf wings with anhedral offer the best roll stability, but Im seei...
