Re: riding goofy side

hi wondering if its a known issue of being "anti ambidextrous"? I can gybe and do surface foot switches on my good side but I have no hope of even riding toeside on my goofy side. It certainly feels like my brain just says 'no' to that. When attempting to ride toeside on my goofy side my hips just ...

Re: Best pumping foil?

Rider is towed to 10knots and released. This requirement will skew the results, there is no need to go that fast. I would bet the current record for distance for "normal" foils (not aquaskipper etc) would be the biplane wing that Horue made for this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JS9pQStSDtw...

Re: Air gibes in marginal winds

Not sure how much wind you are talking about, but in around 4-5 knots we can go on a 21m kite with the race wings, stall starting the foil kite , you need to be able to start gliding with a single pull of the kite in the powerzone. After you are on the foil if you dont mess up i guess the wind can g...

Re: Air gibes in marginal winds

Race wings can go really low in the wind if you dont lose the speed, this means, you dont fail your manouvers, if you do, you will probably swim. The same low end can be done in a much easy way using a bigger foil, but even like that, speed is your friend, you just dont need such a big kite.

Re: Air gibes in marginal winds

Race jibe, just not pointing so much downwind to have more speed. Speed if friend, its when the speed is gone that you start sinking.

Re: WtF man. Will I ever learn transitions...?

Hey gang I have this dream of cruising around up on the foil doing smooth carving turns, zig zagging through swells and other kiters, big smile on my face and the wind in my hair, the only time my board touches the surface is when I water start at the beginning and come in at the end. Reality, my s...

Re: New marginal wind weapon: Kruiser Lightwind

So ive been riding alot more than writing last months, about this marginal wind stuff. I found out that i can go with the Moses Onda and a 13m R1V2 on 15m lines, almost as low in wind than with my Race Setup on 21m kite. That would be around 4-5 knots. It is ALOT more fun with the race setup tho :)

Re: Kite racing line length + harness

Using 11m lines on my 11 and 13, 13m lines on my 17m and 13 or 15m lines on my 21m (depending if lighter or not) R1V2 kites. I feel shorter lines give more control at speed and faster maneuvers.

Re: Moses 2019

New Comet might show up in the Gold Cup in Cagliari next week. It looks like it will be with tuttle this year. Wow thats very relevant information, because that will mean ive no board for it. Just mount tuttle to plate adapter and that makes you even longer mast by 10cm. Thats extra weight i dont w...
