Re: My new project : iGetwind.com

It is great, thanks very much.
Please keep the display simple and clean.. and resist the temptation to clutter up the screen with more small features.

Thanks again

Re: The Duotone Wing

Nico Parlier giving it a try. :D
Google translate came up with the last comment as "..it's bomb" which I guess was a positive review in the original French.

Re: The Duotone Wing

Thanks very much jfoil (I just realized that you are probably Julie S from Maui :D ..I have been following your facebook posts and find them most informative.)

Re: The Duotone Wing

I would be very happy to hear from anyone who is actually riding with these wings. I'm looking for recommendations on equipment for a 165 lb (75 kg) very experienced hydrofoil rider for use in winds from 10 to 20 knots and mostly flat water. 4m or 5m wing? 1500 or 2000 cm front wing? 95 or 115 litre...

Re: the art of the loop!

... if you pull on your future front hand , it is a bit more technical, but you generate a bit more pull... True but pulling with the front hand means your loop will tend to pull you backwards. This can be awkward. At least with a backloop (pull with your back hand), even if it doesn't get you up f...

Re: the art of the loop!

An easier option with the Soul is to backstall it till close to the water, let the lines go and let it accelerate upwards, lifting you onto the board. Interesting technique, I'll have to try that. But not in very light winds where there may not be enough wind near the water to ensure the kite will ...

Re: Best glue for sticking surfboard footpad?

Contact cement is generally used. I expect that other [expensive] retail products work too.
