Re: Looking for kitesurf club/group of riders in the Houston area

Sam, welcome to kiteboarding! :) Lots of fun to be had if you approach it safely. First thing I'd recommend to do is reach to the folks at Houston Kiteboarding. They are former partners, now competitors, and they are really nice people that will take good care of you. They'll have the skinny on all ...

Re: Down Loop practice

Hi Preston, I typically wouldn't recommend anything that big on land. For the most part, you're probably ok. However, in the right circumstances, you could get an unpleasant surprise and get yanked/dragged/lofted by the kite. Depending on your line length or specifics of your foil kite, it might be ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I tested the « Roam 10m black » this afternoon on my Hydrofoil (ketos pocket board 107 and front wing « wave xl »). I first spent 90mn with my Neo 10m and then 90mn on the Roam aluula. Wind was about 12knt average but more 7 to 15knt. On a lake. I must say some of the marketing claims are true and ...

Re: Learning foot switch, sea level first?

I don't know which might be better, but I completed my first foot switch today, on the surface of the water. I'm sure it didn't look very pretty, but it sure felt awesome! :D I'm using the Slingshot FSurf/Alien Air combo and just changed from 1 foot strap to 1 half hook to try and make the transitio...

Re: RideEngine hoof hooks falling off Slingshot dwarfcraft

Or some variation on the old woed working tip: if a wood screw is loose, you shove in as many toothpick that will fit in the hole, snap them off, and then when you put in the screw it fills the voids and is tight again (for a while at least). My father is a residential contractor (semi-retired now,...

Re: Twintip straight to foil....

I would not waste time on a surfboard before foiling - it will just make it worse :roll: If you are an experienced wave kite surfer you can use the habit that your front foot is the "driving" power point, and not the rear like on a TT. But thats it, everything else does not work, using your edges o...

Re: easy peasy

Or the Lift. I forgot about the Lift and the Speed. Have fun! I really think foiling has been the best thing I've done for my kiting since I shifted from 2 line to 4!

Re: easy peasy

Congrats, matth! Which foil are you using on the Double Agent; the Carve or Varial? I have some Carves coming b/c I rode them at the dealer meeting this year and really liked them. :)

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I got a chance to ride both the 14.5 Flite Black and a prototype 9.5 Prodigy (don't know if it will be "Black" also, but the LE was gold Aluula). I'm not certain where the claim originated for more power per size, but I can't really comment on that. I'd have had to flown a non-Aluula back to back wi...
