Re: How to foil *with* footstraps?

I almost always use three footstraps. Only in my very early days did I ever have any situations where I felt my foot might get stuck. Simply use loose footstraps that you can easily come out of. I do often ride with my back foot in front of my back footstrap but I always have my front foot in a foot...

Re: 15 Manufacturers Advance To Factory Inspections In IKA Formula Kite Registered Series Production Scheme For Paris 20

Competition like races show us which are the best performing kites. I have raced a bit and I assure you that most racers choose the very fastest kites that they can get their hands on in the hope that they do better. The five kite brands approved by the IKA dominate the racing scene for good reason....

Re: 15 Manufacturers Advance To Factory Inspections In IKA Formula Kite Registered Series Production Scheme For Paris 20

Very unfortunate that MikesLab did not get IKA approval. Mike has made some of the very best and fastest boards and foils for years now. His development work has greatly benefited our sport. My MikesLab board was way ahead of it's time and the MikesLab foils that I have tried are a pleasure to ride....

Downloops and roll tacks wear out lines

Any move that results in your lines twisted will cause abrasion on your back (steering) lines. I had just noticed excessive wear on my lines (that I have used well over a hundred sessions) and I ordered a new set of lines.. but as fate would have it a rear line broke later that day (while I was down...

Re: Introducing the new Naish Boxer

Great to see Naish continuing to make great kites. I have owned several over the years and been very happy with their performance. Their old sigma kites were very good in that era.. the Cult was a very successful and easy to ride kite. (My friends running a kite school preferred to teach with it ove...

Re: 33% or 50% size gap for foiling quiver

In case anyone doesn't know, the practical wind range for various kites is charted below from most to least. This is why some kites can have a greater size gap in a quiver than others. Remember that wind range is only one property of a kite, one with more range is not always "better". There are many...
