A 12m Cabrinha switchblade with 6m line extensions will get you going in almost nothing. (30m lines in total)
Pretty sure Cab lines are 20 or 22m but their website is down atm :o

Re: Thank you Lou Wainman

Nice :) It was a Corey Roesler pic on water skis that got me gong. When did you start? Had a three-day course around 2003, but decided it'd be better learning to landboard first because I thought it's be easier, I'd have easier access to parks here and the beach was hours away. Wrong. :D The parks ...

Re: Fukushima - isn't it time we started worrying?

I live and kite in Japan and I'm still more concerned about the long-term health effects of solar radiation...

Where exactly are you getting your concern for this from? Cos the experts aren't worried, so unless you've got some inside information -- are you just going with your feelings?

Re: Preferred line length for wave/freeride hydrofoil?

Thats a bit odd :roll: I find a huge difference whether I go 26-27 m (normal foilbar for me) or 30 meter lines. A lot more room for longer powerstrokes and looping the kite with speed while it still pulls up and not horizontal - this is the key to low wind riding, or riding with a really small kite...

Peter, I like 23 m for waves. 27 for cruising around and underpowered conditions.
Have two bars, 3m extensions on one and try to do as you do, but don't notice any difference :lol:
