Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performance

A few days ago I had a chance to play in small waves (1,5 m, foiling with ketos wave XL) with the Soul 6 and 13-18 knts. Jumping from 21m lines to 12mlines made a huge difference. The donkey kick while passing in powerzone was drastically reduced. Still there as compared to my 4.5 Concept Air wave, ...

Re: Carbon Mast Insert repair?

And those who know what they are looking at may well be asking the same question, The side that shows the small crack in the Y, Is that the side that would be nearest the nose of the board? I am thinking this crack may be...

Re: Carbon Mast Insert repair?

Which 9 pump for HF freeride/freestyle ??

As in the subject, I'm trying to understand which 9 pump is best for freeride/freestyle (e.g. Greg Drexler riding style )
BRM Cloud is not an option here in Europe! :angryfire:

Re: thoughts?

... Goddamn it America, get with the 20th century and go metric! Sure, N America is an island. They scarcely export: :roll: 15 / 24 / 30 in = 38 / 61 / 76 cm -> could have been a worldwide set of 40 / 60 / 75 (cm) Stock 35.5 in = 90 cm I really liked the video and the mast package principle though,...

Best foot straps

Can you guys suggest brand & model of your preferred straps for hydrofoiling?
I know you will reply that I should get rid of them asap, but I'm into racing at the moment.
I saw a lot of pics with the north kite racing straps (blue..) but not easy to find.

Re: how small can a front wing get.

The Spotz 2 freeride front wing is 386 cm2 according to the producer, and it definitively needs speed to lift. But it is fun, although air tacks & air jibes are virtually impossible for the average Joe.
