Re: Wingsurfing Right of Way

Here's a thought. How about kiteboarders get their own house in order before worrying about Wingsurfers . By which I mean staying two kiteline lengths away from each other ( 50m - as we were all taught) in an onshore breeze instead of doing speed runs 10m away from one another . There's some frickin...

Re: F-One bladder issues (again :( )

@Kjorn- I had the same issues with the valves cracking on my Furtives a year or so back, replaced two of the strut bladders ( PITA) , and superglued the other cracked connectors ( much easier) - so far so good. Hope that may help.

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

There's some really ill-informed opinions going on here by people who have already decided this just won't work or won't be enjoyable. If you are actually interested in how this might unfold check out the wing.surf page on Facebook for latest updates and videos. A lot of folks already enjoying thems...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12 difficult to handle at the top end

For me ( 80kg) the upper comfortable limit for jumping the 12m Soul is 20ish kts, maybe up to 22. I was using a 55cm standard Ozone Race bar but the trim range is actually not huge ( ie max differential between front and rear line length which translates into angle of attack). So I got a Kite Attitu...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

@flaps1111 - Not answering for Peter but I can say I LOVE my 6m Ultra - have never had a bad session on it. I am running 12/10/8/6/4 Ultras currently, there is quite a bit of overlap to be honest. I am 80kg. For me on a Groove Skate and 800 or 1000cm2 wing the comfortable wind range for the 6m is fr...

Re: statement from Lou

@longwhitecloud Lack of interest in foil racing? Current event in Italy with 87 male competitors , and 30 females? And a young French ex TT racer in the top 10 after day 1? Sorry to say but case closed bro. 100 racers says you are wrong as far as they are concerned. Foil racing is here to stay, with...

Re: The Duotone wing

@jfoil, its nice to hear some feedback from someone who has actually used this product, thanks. Am i right in thinking it is mainly being used as an alternative means of propulsion to a paddle for a SUP board with a large surf foil , as opposed to a kite foilboard? All the videos I have seen with a ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

@prfctChaos, when is the Hyperlink v2 due out? There is zero mention of it on the Web- maybe you know something that the rest of us don't?

Re: F-One Bandit Bladder Nipples are shit

@kjorn, yes I have had a handful of instances of exactly this on my F One Furtives - not complete breaks though, just cracks around 5mm long in the position you indicated, leading to loss of pressure in the strut. Best and cheapest fix for me was just using superglue to seal the crack, replacing the...
