Re: hybrid high wind wing and kite board

It will depend on your weight and on how big of the board you are willing to use for kitefoiling. Just an example:

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Being too lazy to search thru this thread, how is Peak4 holding up over time? Given the flutter, I wonder if fabric has tendency to wear out near the trailing edge as it does on strutless kites. Naish Trips I have do exhibit this over time despite my effort to use as small size as possible, to minim...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

drsurf expressed exactly what my expectation is of the Peak4 in 8 m²! However, I´m hoping that selling my loved 10 m² Naish Boxer was not a mistake ;-) The Peak shall replace it, with 1-2 kts better low end, hopefully. One main consideration in terms of getting the 8 m² Peak was: When you´re out in...

Re: Spitfire with standard stab and XL wing

I wondered about this combo but never tried it because I always forgot to take smaller wings with me to the beach. I've been riding Armstrong foil since May, but will get the Spit out for a reunion soon and try the smaller stab.

Did Neil Pryde give up on their dream to monopolize kiteboarding in Olympics?

Re: Tef gel, cooper slip, silicone for bolts

Tef-gel is very sticky with a high adhesion to surface which makes it work very well. Protective film it creates is hard to remove. Tef-gel is PITA if you disassemble parts often because of that stickiness. Other grease works fine as long as it is non-conductive and contact surfaces are well covered...

Re: Horue E-Foil Waviator

Me thinks that for 5800 euros one can get a high end e-mtb which is more fun for no wind days than any of these other toys.

Re: Los Barriles

I second Los Barriles for foiling. I go there pretty much every year around Christmas. I like it better than La Ventana although I only spent one day at LV. The beach in LB is better, less rocks, swell seems to get bigger and tends to be less crowded at preferred parts of the beach than LV. LV might...

Re: Sliding spreader bar dimensions

I got sloppy when replacing the rope. now it is a bit slack (longer "A" dimension) could be as much as 5-6 inches. Still works fine, enough reach for me. I found that having quick release too close to the spreader on my Vega sit harness (using Slingshot Talon metal loop) was detrimental to the comfo...

Never having tried monofoil, i wonder if a canard feels like a monofoil with more pitch control.
Not really. Spitfire is lot more stable than mono and closer to a regular foil by comparison, even with small wings.
