Re: Mentese Labs Line Mount for 360 Cameras

Using it with a housing degrades the image quality and I also experienced fogging. They advertise the camera as being water resistant but others online have noted their cameras have died after kiting or surfing. I intentionally keep it a bit more conservative while using the camera on the lines.

Re: Review: Liquid Force Orb (foilboard)

The inserts failed and you can see it's only secured from the topskin. The styrofoam underneath is not structural at all.

Re: Review: Liquid Force Orb (foilboard)

as long as we are talking about the LF Galaxy pros and contras... I've heard a few other owners state that one or more of the triple insert "sets" come loose under the "laminate" of fiberglass... or plastic sheet..? as one guy here wrote. I just purchased a barely used 4ft2 model in Hood River (now...

Mentese Labs Line Mount for 360 Cameras

For anyone with an Insta360 or GoPro Max, this is likely the line mount you're looking for. Enes Mentese out in Berkeley came out with this mount a few months ago, and it solves the old problem of having 70% of your field of view being obstructed by the line mount itself. This is accomplished by put...

Re: seat harness impedes toeside, anyone but me?

I use the mystic stealth bar with surf rope, it's been great for foiling as the heavy padding and integrated bar (screwed to the pad, not floating) means there's no rotation of the bar into my ribs. I've been using it with a hardshell majestic x harness but may try it with the foil seat harness lat...

Re: foot switching - all the video's are photo shopped, right? advice please

I spent days trying to get foot switches with my board on the water. At the advice of friends I started trying them while in the air. It's easier in the air . I wish someone would have told me that at the start. speed = stability also lifting the back foot up while the foil is rising is another key ...

Re: Naish Torque Bar - flag line knot slipped through stopper

just to close this out, naish mailed me a replacement metal stopper. it's slightly shorter than the black plastic stopper and the hole is ever so slightly smaller as well. https://i.imgur.com/d2y2QKT.jpg btw, for anyone who doesn't have one, I got to use a fid I purchased a few years back, for the f...

Re: Moses 679

I had the same question earlier this season. As others have mentioned it's apparently a common and known issue. It happens more with my surf fuselage. The kite fuselage ends up with slightly loose screws and the surf fuselage ends up with pretty loose screws.
