Re: Foil board as directional? Anyone tried it?

I always wondered what my foil board would feel like with just the short mast and no wing. Might try it this year just for fun.

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

It's worth it, even if you're not in it for light wind benefits. Very very fun.

Re: Kiteboarding in Varadero

Wtf, can you tell us wind stats for the time you have been? Sure, I went down early Feb. Winds were N/E first couple days, 10-12knots, then 20-25 knots for the remainder on the week but Easterly. Which was side shore to very slightly side off. Stayed at the Paradisius Veradero and if you google it ...

Re: Sometimes I wish I knew my speed

I went with the cheap watch option, bought a Garmin Forerunner 15 on Amazon for like 50 bucks. It's one of the cheaper ones that is waterproof. Used it kiting for 2 years or so and it's still holding up great. Personally I'd rather take an inexpensive watch I don't mind smashing around than a $1000...

Re: Best hydrofoil board for beginner Volume or thinner?

I really like my slingshot simulator board! You dont really need to flip the board on edge to start, just leave the board flat, both hands on the bar, put your heels on the board and let the kite pull you onto the board. Look at some videos on how foilers position their feet. Back foot is usually p...

Re: Kiteboarding in Varadero

Hey WTF, How’d you make out in Varadero? Hey, yea had no problem setting up on the resorts beach. I asked beforehand and had no objections, just found an area clear from people and did my thing. Couple other kiteboarders came out later in the week. Lots of those Portuguese Man-O-Wars out there! Was...

Re: Kiteboarding in Veradero

This has been discussed many times before. Kiting is forbidden at the tip of the peninsula where the wind is onshore it is allowed further down where it is generally offshore. You have to pay a tax to kite there. This is why nobody goes there for kiting anymore. Oh ok.. kiteboarding would just be a...
