Re: Fukushima - isn't it time we started worrying?

Er... just a thought, how's it going with the smoking? Lots of suggestions that it's not good for you and premature deaths of other Marlboroughmen and women seem to support that? Indeed... even second hand smoking is terrible. Here is a map of how cigarette smoke from Japan is dispersed. https://ww...

Re: Game changer - Onewheel teaches how to turn on a foil

I revived this thread as I'm seriously considering one... What is the opinion of the owners? Still enthusiastic about it or it has faded out? Ehmmm, I think it depends on availability of good riding spots near by, or perhaps being able to use one to commute. I for one hardly ever ride it anymore mo...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

....to add to foot switch advice: Back foot push-down just as switch is initiated works well for me when switching heel to toe, however I can't do it (yet) when switching toe to heel. In this case a extra lift from the kite makes up for it. So if having problem with nose diving during the foot switc...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs. Ozone Hyperlink for LW foilboard riding

Both are good kites if comparing HL ultralight vs Soul. I own regular HL and would have bought Soul if it was available sooner. In larger sizes Soul would be my preference today

Re: Kite 7m for hydrofoil

Depending on the type of foil, quality of wind (10-11 knots means different things at different locations) and your skills those kites should work for you. Lighter the kite, easier it will be to fly it in those winds, however pretty much all kites should fly well in 10-11 knots. I liked Reo a lot, b...

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

Ketos is a good choice. Foil with Pocket board feels freakishly light if you are used to alu foil. New Lift is not bad either.

Re: Need advice for kitefoil in waves

In general, large wings with thicker profile. Foils designed for surfing or SUPing work well. Just about all foil manufacturers are making such foils now. Moses, Zeeko, Naish, Slingshot, LF, Lift............................ Check out their websites for choices. Some dealers provide reviews on some b...

Dear All,
as we receive many request on the XLW SPITFIRE wings I just want to inform that they are back on stock and this time in white color with the AVS system.
I'd love to hear feedback on these. Hopefully from someone who used original XLW wings before

Re: OK to kite near Afrodite’s rock, Cyprus?

Yup, that was me. I chickened out after having a look at the gap between two outer rocks (?) and seeing corral or something there - possibly too shallow to pass thru. For me the whole thing was about going thru and around those rocks. Perhaps next time. Btw, good to meet you there.
