Re: Crazyfly F-Lite for intermediate?

The board has M6 inserts with about 10mm long thread. The mounting felt weird at first as my previous board is SB construction with long inserts, but this board is a lot more durable. I see no risk of the inserts ripping out after all its similar layup to a twintip with the inserts all the way up to...

Re: Crazyfly F-Lite for intermediate?

...The funny thing is that on the F-lite the holes go right through the board (so screw and nut), while on the Chill there are inserts (so screw directly into the board). In the second case the length of the screw is important and is likely to vary according to the foil that you use. I don't know w...

Re: Coating your Kite

There is an old DWR thread here on KF about silicone and terpentine. I applied the mixture to an old foil kite which was porous and the DWR layer was long gone and it worked like a charm. Lasted about 1 season then it started sucking water again. However the weight penalty was big as far as I rememb...

Re: climate change /unpredictable weather/wind

... Start educating yourself by looking up: 1) global sequential in-place water vapor generation, 2) global frequency control via Nexrad/ Dopplar/ phased array grid, 3) global chemtrail program - frequency controllable components (IE: Nexrad frequency) ... Why is that no kite manufacturers are maki...

Re: any reviews on small crazyfly foil board?

I have the 115cm used it 4hrs so far. Really light super strong the tip has a nice flex to help with touchdowns. Not really forgiving during transitions but better than I expected.
The 99cm is a real beast I guess :)

Re: 12 vs 15m for Marginal

9-15 is fine I had that setup for years. I would go for the ultralight cloth it makes a difference.

Re: 12 vs 15m for Marginal

... How much difference there is between 12 and 15 with these kites from just can or cannot ride perspective? ... I'm 82kgs and have an FRS 12 (fore sale btw) I sold my 15m because it feels overpowered with the foil as soon as the wind is around 9-10kn. I can foil with the 12 frs from 7-8kn (I gues...

Re: Crazyfly F-Lite for intermediate?

Thanks guys awesome inputs! I had a chance to try the Chill (130x446 last Weekend in marginal conditions (sub 10kn) for cca. 30 mins (wind died..) I fell in love with the thing... What about LW performance of the 115 f-lite? We often get sub 10 kn conditions and if the Chill is a lot better for that...

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

If you don't thrust cheap chinese glasses you can always go for safety glasses. Some are designed for outdoor tasks in extreme environment, bulletproof and guaranteed protection. Of course they all lack of bullshit hype and bling... For instance a Bollé polarized sunglasses costs $100+, the similar ...

Crazyfly F-Lite for intermediate?

Hi, I'm about to upgrade my foilboard (a custom SB with foil mount 150x45cm). I was looking for a freeride foil board 125-140 cm long but happen to have a crazy deal on a crazyfly f-lite 115x44 board. Is it OK for intermediate riders or maybe too short and will be longer to progress at my level? I c...
