Re: Flysurfer Soul

Right, so this does not exist? https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2399871&p=1018806 "On the other hand, in gusty conditions and windshifts overflying wind window edge is a nasty behaviur."

Not really adding much that hasn't been said already, but I would agree that the 6m is a very different kite.

Hmm, glad to hear about 6m.

However, clearly remember reports about overflying the WW from very experienced kiters in here.

Which is not for faint hearted.

Let us know.

Re: First wake board build

No,

All my rails are premade PU.

The process is well defined and explained on the site.

Works for me :)

Mind you, for 90kg rider I would use 14mm wood core in the middle.

Re: First wake board build

12mm Paulownia thinned on tips as in here: https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=2387451 does not flex much. With any triax (FG or CF), that would be a bulldozer board :) Riding the above board for last 4 years, it says a lot about strength. But, that depends on rider weight and other variable...

Re: First wake board build

Triax FG? Forget about it. That is almost 1.2kg of glass with resin. Plus, really difficult to wet out. Carbon on the other hand is way more better. I hope you know the stiffness comes from the core thickness, cubed. So 2mm diff in a core equals heaps more than 1mm, ie 10mm^3 is 1000 but 12^3 is 172...

Re: First wake board build

Hi, I'm attempting my first wake board build. I was planning on a 150cm long board similar in style to a liquid force TAO. I'm in Australia, so I locally sourced paulownia timber planks (12mmx100mmx1500) which I will cut into 2cm vertical strips, glue and make my core from that. I have read quite a...

Your first enemy is not doing a KISS build. Thats my only advice at this point.

All the rest is covered in here or above forum.

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Still going on about the QR? ;-) The first thing is to REPLACE the dangling part :) So it can't get stuck etc. How to replace is the choice to make ;) I'll put a vid at some stage. Show us how and you may have a point. So far.. not so much. :-) It might be true that the other solutions are more int...

Re: sea anchor!

This thread is too funny... Any foil kiter swimming in would pickup so much sand on the beach that the kite would weight a ton. That sand is not going out by itself. It is actually proven that some models will take a sand into TE seams and stay there forever. FOREVER. That is, if not getting a hose ...
