The longest non-stop leg

Wonder to know the longest non-stop leg on one tack known or experienced by you. How to cope with numbness, fatigue? What gear to use? What accessories are handy? Any tips? What average speed etc? I am preparing for a 5 hours crossing - most likely on one tack. My best so far was 90,5km in 2h58m, av...

Re: state of the art wave kite foiling

When I was talking about wave riding on hydrofoil in 2013 everybody was laughing. Everybody. Wish to know what say now all these guys suggesting me to shut up... Even below video did not alert them. Managed to ride from to the lip to the bottom couple of times and I loved it. Unfortunately Baltic is...

Re: Baltic Crossing Poland-Denmark

Preparation for a longer crossing today. Soul8 Moses Comet 111 NW 14-20kts. Wave 1,5m awful chop. The goal was to run as long as possible on one tack only. 90km in 3 hours. Happy with my body performance. I could run double distance but Baltic was too short today ;) Total distance 200km in 6h06m htt...

Re: Line length poll

And if one on short lines can outjump someone on long lines, that would be interesting to see. Once more young riders begin to jump with short lines and race kites I expect that twintips and pumped kites will be dethroned :idea: My highest ever foil jump with 25m lines was 13,3m in 25-30kts. Cabrin...

Re: Line length poll

I went myself thru all the possible combinations. I started with a 17m v2 with 17m lines , then switched for a 19m v2 on 17m lines and after it 15m lines, then to 21m v2 with 15m lines and switched later to 13m lines. So basically if you need to water start often, meaning you fail your manouvers, l...

Re: Line length poll

I stopped using lines longer than 17m.
Don't see any advantage of longer lines for foil kites.
For Big Air - only 11m or shorter even for 15m kites.

Much easier to jump 15m+ on a hydrofoil with 11m lines.
