Re: Do you need some rocker at tail of board

Having too much angle (too much rocker) is uncomfortable and almost as bad as not enough. For those using foils with plate mounting shims can be used to adjust the board to foil angle precisely.

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

I absolutely cannot understand need for swivel. The manual ones needs to be untwist manually and the automatic ones are are jokes. Just loop kite. / Are you suggesting racers should loop their kites after each tack or jibe to untwist their lines :D ? Well no they prefer to ride with crossed lines (...

my only concern wiht the slider bar, is the rope snapping. Seems like this happens quite a bit.

Any thoughts?
Some slider bars (Manera for sure) have double slider ropes so if one fails no drama + this creates extra friction which helps with better control of the sliding. :thumb:

Re: Deck grip

Why are deck pads so freaking expensive?...I've getting ready to build my own board and I was like wtf when I saw the prices. Hmmm, yes, in shops big deck pads are expensive, agree. But on the net they cost almost nothing... Here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2017-2200-650-5mm-Surfboard-deck-pad-...

Re: Lightweight carbon mast for any wings

Compatibility is good as long as it does not stop progress. I have 2 masts from F-One, carbon Grand prix full carbon 95cm (1.5kg) and F-One aluminium 85cm hollow (1.45kg) so nothing special there.

Re: New f-one bar ripped apart while riding, what to expect from manufacturer?

Every brand out there has some issues at one point in time whether its valves, bars, quick release etc. It's inevitable and happens in all industries. What is important is how they deal with it. F-One admitted having this problem and replaced the defective part. Shit happens and it has before and wi...

Re: short lines on tube kites for foiling

16m is no problem, just try it. Give yourself some time on it to get used to it. After a few days you will have a better idea how it works for you. When I still used tubes I was on 14m most of the time and 10m sometimes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNpFmfxxAUM Now on Hyperlink (foil) I am using...

Re: Chile- Matanzas, Roca cuadrada...

Don't make the mistake. You definitely need a 4x4 with differential lock to access Roca quadrada otherwise you will end up like so many others having to walk 500m on the beach to access the spot. I spent a month there a few years ago and found accommodation in Matanzas by asking locals but prices ar...
