633/91/483 whistling relief and new stab?

My 633 setup whistles quite abit at times and would like to fix it. Ive read sanding down the trailing edge of the mast flat will help. Does anyone have some tips or trick to doing this?? I have some 1000grit wet sand paper at home and was going to use a chunk of 2x4 as a sanding block.. Id also lik...

Re: Does kiteboarding affect your sleep?

Yea, if I get off the water late. Had a sunset foil session last night and was in bed staring at the ceiling until midnight with a big grin on my face.

I‘m struggling to decide what would be a better 2 kite UFO quiver for Foil/Surf:

9m + 7m, 9m + 5m or 7m + 5m?

80kg
12-16knots = 80%
16-24knots = 18%
24knots = 2%
Im in the same boat but 70 kg with a 633.

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

I've only rode strapless so far.. Foot changes before/ after gybes , sit downs, tacks (roll and duck), strapless pops.. I havent really mastered any yet but so much fun trying. Sit downs are so fun though, very close feeling to a reoccurring dream I had as a kid. "Sitting" cross legged flying above ...

Re: Slingshot UFO

Very interested in these kites.. wonder what the wind range will be for the 7 and 9m.. my 3strut 7m prodigy works down to around 12 knots so this must have a little more range.. Jumping likely won't be good.. My next quiver might be a 7m strutless and 7m struted lol. Change the foil with the kite de...

Re: which is the best upwind bodydrag technique to recover the board?

Stretched out like an arrow, as much surface area in water as possible, dont point up wind too high. I'm usually in light winds so keeping the kite higher is safer. If my foilboards ~5ft behind me I'll sometimes just keep the kite high and swim.
