Re: Tuning the Flysurfer Boost v1 9m? Flutter issue.

Did you find out what was wrong with your boost? I have also 9m boost v1 and it flutters in higher winds.. Did I just reach its high end or is there something wrong with the kite.

Re: foil attached to twintip

I would like to just report it works great :)
Twintip is a little bit flexible, but I didn't notice any problems with it in use.

Had to build a wooden adapter plate between the foil and board, because board bottom isn't flat enough.

Haven't tried the new model but 2 generations old are still in use and they work great. edit: just read the comment section and seems they ruined the new model =( h...

Re: Beginner need advice choosing kitefoil

Cheap and easy = gong surf foil.
It's heavy (compared to expensive carbon foils), but won't be a problem in water.

Re: New Wetsuit Skunk stink....

^ Peter, normal wetsuit neoprene smell is "good" :D this is something totally different. Once when you get a wetsuit like this, you'll understand..
