Re: Wing loading as a metic

Wing loading is essential if you are foilsurfing. When kitefoiling it is partly essential yes, you are right. But only partly and not proportional, because when heavier you use a bigger kite, thus not needed a similar bigger sized wing. Sorry to muddle your info up :o full-on fail mode today, me. T...

Re: Wing loading as a metric

DOH :oops: Funny, cos I originally worked them out in g/cm2 then thought it'd be better to do kg/m2 to compare them to the chart on Wikipedia :lol:

Wing loading as a metric

...for choosing a foil for your weight and style. Thinking out loud. So for surfing around, catching swell and using small kites, I think a big wing is great and love my 820. Peter Frank thinks it's way too big, and I think I know why he thinks that :D and why others use such smaller kites than me. ...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Hi, does it rally help significantly to use a bigger frontwing/Is it really worth investigating in another wing, I am pretty happy otherwise with mine? How big should I go, compared to my 2018 540 sqcm duotone GT wing? Will I not loose the speed characteristics and turnability (for example in gybes...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

The back foot switch is where you position the back foot in front of the mast, bring the front foot back closer to the back foot, put the old back foot forward, then reposition your new back foot.

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Thanks again for all the Input, but could you also Mention how Long/how many sessions you took to get it dialed in? Knowing how long it took someone is artificial because you don’t know how often they went, how long they were out when they went, their experience with directional boards, what kind o...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Thanks again for all the Input, but could you also Mention how Long/how many sessions you took to get it dialed in? 3-400 sessions I would guess, took some years to learn :roll: Could do it occasionally pure luck and very rare when starting 5 years ago, after a year on the gear back then - but it i...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

There's two kinds of flying foot switch. Front foot and back foot. The one you see in all the videos is front foot. You keep the front foot in position and move the back foot forward. That's quite hard ... There's an easy way around it, IMO... Kite stable at about 11, back hand on the bar, bear off...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Change foil. Big wing its like 10 more easy. Or be patient This. I completely gave up even trying in my old kite foil. Got a big wing, also didn't bother because hey it seemed impossible before. Then I tried jumptheshark's method of popping the board up over chop and it was almost instantly success...
