Re: Building a state-of-the-art foil kite

its 95 % about the canopy with its profile and the tension in the straps The bridle is just to release the canopies potential, but if the canopies shape is bad it will never be a nice kite not with the best bridle. @kiteexpert: Maybe already asked that question: Are there any real world photos or v...

Re: Broken Strut

Mike Murphy came by our spot last weekend. He seemed to care more about not cashing out on this foil craze rather than what that thing is called :wink: I would wager you could call it a "chassis" if he was paid what was,is most likely his due!

Re: Broken Strut

Yah the Airchair predates all of these brands and they call it a T-bar, I lean toward mast over strut but if you want to get technical and pound your chest over which is right... they are both wrong. https://www.airchair.com/product/mv-38-t-bar/ Wrong!

Re: Broken Strut

The only "mast" on ANY foil board would be on one with a sail, as in Sail board hydrofoil, SBHF! You hang sails on masts, You support foil boards with STRUTS.

Re: Best Board Length and Shape

Consider scoop for learning, touch downs and jump receptions if going there. Rounded rails AND rounded board for body contacts that will happen. Also user friendly when transporting and others rescuing your KBHF if needed. A touch of volume will help during times of ultra lowind and stronger strengt...
