Re: Line length, gybing and down-looping

"Many racers only do tacks in this wind, for the same reason." -> I feel exactly the opposite, the wind will become so low that im not able to tack anymore (if i do i wont have enough exit speed, ill touch down, sink and drop my kite), but i still can jibe (barely, but not touching down). Ive heard...

Re: Line length, gybing and down-looping

The most extreme combination I tried is R1V2 17m on 10m lines (and only a 50cm bar even). It works. 19m R1V2 on 14m lines works well too. It is all about timing really. I would say I got the kite following more, after bringing it all the way up before initiating the loop. Looping to waterstart is a...

Re: Moses 2019

We are today the biggest hydrofoil company in the world It's hard to deny. Glad that Moses HF has predicted the coming revolution many years ago - well ahead of big names. And this is what I appreciate so much. It was surprising and interesting that a small Italian company became the leader setting...

Re: The All-New AV8 Collection from Cabrinha

Did anybody compare this foil to any good racing machine? Cab Driver, would you please? - what is a weight of the foil and board? My guess is 2,8kg for the foil and 3,0kg for the board. - how does look the pro box adaptor for the rails? what is the price? - AR 6.4 for racing. I would expect rather 7...

Re: AV8 Teaser - Cabrinha

Looks like a great kite....... It is. It's the Velocity. Still a great kite after all these years. One of the best or even the best inflatable I've been riding with hydrofoil! https://i.postimg.cc/Vs9mYcTJ/NIK-7203.jpg I hope that the same race bar with great lines and without a leash would be rebo...

So when you fell at the beginning is it just because you were getting used to the throttle?

I assume you already kite foil?

Re: Efoil now shipping....anyone tossing their kite?

There will be some restrictions sooner or later but not so strict like for jet-skis. I had to wear a helmet and a lifejacket as it was suggested by a Harbour Master. I did but after a while had to give up with a lifejacket as it was hampering too much. Just wrong type of the PFD. At open water I wou...
