Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Well this thread has taken some interesting directions - i love the experimentation with different materials in construction seeking ever lighter kites. VP22 you have made a truly beautiful job on your 9m - fabulous. However, i am intrigued if you are such a weight weenie, why dont you just lose tha...

Re: WinGsurfing; surfplan help

Thanks Stu - was trying to open the file in an older version of blender. How did you decide on the amount of dihedral? Pantau - how does Stus design compare with the wing you have already made? Would it be a simple task to add an inflatable strut as the handles option which seems to be the most popu...

Wouldn't the setting Profile depth (%) at chord (%) under Profile - Wingtips take care of ...

Moses 633/483 combo on 2017 Fluente 93 (curved) mast?

I have been riding the 2017 Fluente 548/325 for a couple of years but need to go more slowly for swell play

Looking at the 633/483 combo - I am assuming that this will ride fine on my curved 93 mast? I notice all current 91 and 82 masts are straight - has anyone any experience or thoughts please?
