Re: starting on duck tack to toeside

Literally kitesurfing is remotely piloting a small glider that you are tethered to and using it's lift to pull you through the water (and air). Not even! :nono: A kite is not a glider, nor a glider a kite! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kite https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glider_(sailplane) Note that...

Re: Liquid Force Rocket vs Liquid Force Galazy vs Slingshot Dwarfcraft Boards

Lf rocket is heavy and a dog. That said, I've fixed a LF happy foil board and other Lf surfboard and the construction is cheap. :thumb: Also like their FUNNY FOIL, lots of marketing hype with very limited performance! I feel sorry for SO many guys who bought said FUNNY foil only to find out what a ...

Re: starting on duck tack to toeside

No such thing as "duck tack to toe side"! BUT correct definitions are often lacking here on K F, examples STRUT, RAM AIR, KITE BOARDING ECT!!! There is tack to toe side where feet are not changed in stance, enter upwind tack turn heel side, ride away toe side. But by definition a duck tack requires ...

Re: Vacuum bagging aluminum mast with carbon fiber

WHY? Every HEAVY ALU STRUT, NOT mast, (DAMN IT) I have ever seen was heavy BUT stiff! Aircraft companies using modern high tech materials do get good, great even bonding alu to epoxy, but NEVER, (have tried) using normal easy to find products had a bond that lasts. You will think so but just wait! H...

Re: A case for full face?

The more the stuff you have around your head the more chances to get the line caught on something you cant see... Much rather have a line issue than open wound, concussion, not to mention ear protection! :o Other factor is what others may do as in released kite looping and bar striking your head, s...
