Re: Flying footswitch learning time

I can now change feet on both sides without any problem . On jshapes foils around 800 to 950cm2 For me , the keys things are ; Kite fairly neutral feet and hips pointing forward to take out extra movements. Start with more weight on the back foot so the front foot is unweighted. This makes it easier...

Re: Gath Helmets with Visor

I have worn gath helmets since they came out . Is it 30 years ? :o Windsurfing and kiting. So far 4. The first one had an adjustable visor and the others with a partial one. The adjustable visor was a bit restrictive when down , you can’t see through it that well as it gets covered in spray. But you...

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

Bigger foil will certainly help. For me ... I gybe first and go toeside My focus is then on getting comfortable , level out the board , kite high but not much line tension , fairly upright body, feet pointing in same direction as the board ... and step off the BACK foot to the front from above the m...

Re: Changing the way you jibe?

If you want to change , you need to figure out what you do on your strong transition side against your weak transition side. I had a big difference on either side. And I come from windsurfing , which requires a more balanced transition of both sides. But i think it’s really important to be able to d...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

Thank you Eddie. That is exactly what I’m feeling with the Long mast vs the short one is the weight difference. So I guess just slow things down including kite dive to give the longer/heavier mast a chance to catch up? Thanks in advance. BW No worries Big Wally . It’s not so much that you wait for ...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

[quote=Peter_Frank post But as said before, pretty sure now, the misconceptions to one or the other side comes between those who can accept a slight touch(down), and those who can not, thus VERY different likings appear :naughty: [/i] I wonder how long will it take me to get good enough to hardly n...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

"Learning how to surface ride" should be like the first 2 hours of your very first session. If you're posting on the internet about your difficulties learning to surface ride a hydrofoil, you don't know how to kiteboard, lol. It took me way more than 2 hrs just to manage to position the board and t...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

I have learnt on a carbon intermediate 95cm jshapes foil and am struggling to read the overthinking going into the learning curve ( in this thread ) due to staged learning on short to longer masts . There’s always the question going on ... “ when do I go to a longer one ? “ ... mate , just do it and...
