Re: When you swim in with your foil kite in the winter and it's soaked.

Fly dry it first, that will get 90% of it. After that, loosely piled up indoors in warm rooms will finish it. You have to shuffle it around every 30 min or so to get warm air to all the spots but it will dry out.

Re: 80 knots on a foilkite

142kph even if dh assisted stand on some slabs of wood being pulled by and angry kite is a storm is still nucking futs. I say full credit to that man. He can still claim to be the fastest human pulled by a kite. Sorry but I have to disagree. For example, the current world speed ski record is over 1...

Re: Another kite size recommendation for a 1st timer

Locally for your size on a board and our normally firm conditions, an 8 or 9m (depending on the kite and your piloting skills) can be a "meat and potatoes' size range. Being on the board you'll need a bit more than a skier. And riding near the coast means you will often have snow with a higher moist...

Re: Maine snow kiting?

To get the goods there is always going to be some driving involved. But not dealing with the crowds, the lines and ticket prices take a lot of the sting out of it. There are a have been a few kiters out of Naples/Bridgton and Auburn. Though we all generally ride together and tend to hit areas on the...

Re: Gin Marabou Water Relaunchable Single Skin

Hi Hardwater Kiter, could you please confirm if is it possible to fly this GIN MARABOU also with any standard 4 lines bar born for the LEI kites? Or flying this Marabou with its original GIN bar only is mandatory? I have flown the Marabou with a standard LEI Kite bar (Eleveight), surely this is pos...

Re: foil kite catcher

Nice little demonstration. :D Good in a constant wind direction but what about variable? IMO A stall handle and practice will get you through 99% of tight landing areas. Sure, at times, You may end up with a rats nest but if you're done for the day and just want to get off the kite it's not really a...

Re: Gin Marabou Water Relaunchable Single Skin

The shaman series 12 m topped out at 15knts but the new marbou 12m tops out at 21knts is that an error or some kind of magic texhnology . One interesting observation is that the windranges seemed to have increased considerably compare to the shaman can anyone from Gin comment on this . I mean did t...

Re: Peak4 vs Shaman2

We've been flying the Shaman 2 at HARDWATERKITER.COM for about a month and a half and I have to say I am very happy with it. All the sizes are a joy to fly and deliver everything that we love about single skins and none of the things we don't. Very smooth, even in full depower and the higher AR pays...
