Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

I'm still trying to get the normal tack sorted--i.e., the one where you turn your back to the wind through the move. I usually fly underpowered, and I never learned how to do this on a directional board before foiling, so this move is taking me a long time to get. I still touch down more often than ...

Re: straps for foil if not getting air

I rode strapped for my first 2 years foiling (or so) and have been unstrapped the last 2 (or so). For me, straps made everything easier. You can use the straps to yaw the board around in pretty much every maneuver in a way that you can't without straps. I had to relearn almost everything when I took...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

but these total tanks of boards that were not too fun to ride. :thumb: I wonder how many guys bought cheap Funny foil and quit because of lack of performance and weight. Or on the other hand bought one to test the sport and oh so quickly out grew it and found it hard to resell because word got out....

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I've never used a foil kite before, but I'm considering getting a Peak to try it out. I'm 195 lbs and I ride a Lift 150. I'm not really interested in a huge foil kite, but considering the smaller sizes. What would the approximate wind range be for 3m, 4m, 5m, and 8m?

Re: Pocket board for 82 cm mast and big wing.

I’m 6’3” 195 lbs 12.5 shoe size with very narrow stance. My stance used to be wide, but it got narrower when I went to a shorter board. My home build is 84 x 39 cm. I have a Slingshot Micro for light wind days, but I ride my home build from 13kn+. I can’t comment on how wide a board should be for sh...

Re: Roll Tacks: Stuck at 25% Success - tips?

This advice may not be for everyone, but when I was learning these, it helped me to move the timing of the foot switch much earlier in relation to the upwind carve. It helped me to conceptualize what I was doing to think of it, not as a “tack,” but as a “foot switch from heel to toeside followed by ...

Re: Chafing / bruises from binding - recommendations?

I used to get chafing like that on my toes. Try wearing neoprene fin socks or wetsuit booties.

Re: Unhooked foiling

What are the benefits of foiling unhooked? I’ve never tried unhooking other than just goofing around on the beach.
