Re: Depower rope WTF

Even with jeweler's files it's tough to get at the right spots :( and the material is hard, and you can't get a finger in there to check if it's smooth. I wonder if trimming a few mm off the safety line end of the PU tube at the cleat will let the rope side go further into the cleat and protect the ...

Yep that's what it looks like. Did you file it down?

CA5473F3-C126-4564-BF7D-0DB61B04E892.jpeg Here we are again... Less than 12 months later, less than 6 months old bar, less then impressed. Square cut ends on the tails :angryfire: and there's a little flashing left inside the cleat. I'm thinking I might go back to straps but... answer to this probl...

Re: Why isn't sliding rope bar more prevalent?

I went back to using a regular hook on the twim tip after two years or so of using a Dynabar exclusively.

Toe side riding is more tricky of course but I feel jumps are more ...crisp. The DB seemed a bit spongy when loading up...

Still 100% using Dynabar for foiling and surging though!

Doesn't the triangular metal buckle at the end of the trim strap have a bolt in it?

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

I’d skip the foil kites for learning to foil board.

Foiling isn’t going to be light wind weapon until you’ve got some skills.

IMO you want a size of kite for the conditions that you can body drag upwind with — just.

Good conditions are steady 15 knots....

Axis Kink too, if MV isn't your thing. Hopefully get to try one soon :D
Axis Kink is the shortest of the MV boards. Definitely worth trying :D
Has volume, just short. MV boards are like the Double Agent.

Re: Looking for someone to look at a foil package before I buy

"Family and Friends" or "Gift" hasn't been an option here for years. Apparently, you have no protection if you send money that way so why would you? Negotiate the fees if that bothers you...

Re: Choosing between Two Slingshot Foil boards

The cumbersome bulkyness does suck, but that size & volume can be quite helpful when learning foot-changes. I believe the later AA versions are smaller vs the original. I learned surface changes on my original LF Fun Fish -- very little volume. Need power in the kite to keep up the board speed, reg...
