Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

I'm not sure why Duotone made this thing. They must not have read PumpMeUp's 2019 market analysis of foil kites. :rollgrin:

I don't ride hydrofoils, putting me in the minority for Cloud fans. Some of my favourite waves around here have really holey ...

Re: Deck grip

Hexatraction was not good enough for me barefoot on a surfboard. I kept slipping off. My friend who owns the board rides it with booties, and that works for him.
