Re: Large Kite that will relaunch

12 knots is easy to relaunch, 8 knots.... not so much.

I second the thought of a foil kite in those winds. They hang in the air longer at 8 knots.

Re: Kiter killed in New Zealand

plummet, agree with everything except the last sentence. The redirect only works well on water where you land with the board pointed downwind and with some speed. Speed is not what you want landing on land, instead, having let the bar out to reduce lift, as you come down, at the last moment, about ...

Re: Kiter killed in New Zealand

A sad day indeed. My heart goes out to the family and friends. https://www.sunlive.co.nz/news/197982-kite-surfer-dies-tauranga.html?fbclid=IwAR09XDkyrykytX969h1ygRBvpLv2Ua-Flar7TWQ1Fe0tGt8DIyrILRTc3fs These accidents always follow a similar trend.

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2019

My predictions for 2019 is that dudes will be sitting on the beach waiting for wind to blow enough for their lei's while I'm powered to all hell, trimmed and ripping up a storm on my foil/foil combo.

Muscly dudes, hot chicks, crazy moves. Why us it when I go to the beach there's balding chubby dudes mowing backwards and forwards?

Re: Time for more stoke stories.

That is cool. I have a few spots like that. Well quite a few as I'm typically the line foiler and my town is only 70000

Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

Plummet, wish I had the time to make wings. Ive been experimenting with 3D printer at work, thinking of getting a creality cr10s5 with 500*500*500 build volume. But experiments telling me that it's better to get a cnc. How about getting a mast and fuselage, then just making wings you can screw on a...

Re: Fast wave hydrofoiling.

heh, interesting indeed, the adventure continues. In the gear exploration phase, I find that borrowing/demo doesn't work very well, as you can't learn the in's and out's of the gear in one or two tries. For me at least, I don't really know how something works until I've got comfortable with it, the...

Re: Foil front loop tutorials

The trick is to aggressively bend your front knee to keep the foil going up as you throw your body forward toward your bent knee. I do them from heelside and toeside. Practice really is the key after knowing what to try. Like on a TT or surfboard, stalling backwards to the kite is very normal when ...
