Re: New wingfoiler ideas on how to learn pumping

Is it not a little bit like doing an Ollie on the skateboard. Although you have something to hold on to. Kicking in the back, kind of jumping at the same time and then shoving the board forward and up with the front foot? (I always felt completely retarded when trying that cause missing the coordina...

Re: Learning Curve

I started Kite foiling an it took me 2 guided session to get more or less reliable on the foil and then may be 3 more get more save. 10-15kn on Lake Como.

Re: 3D printed fiberglass covered wings taking in water

Hi,
handlaminated? How is the finish? Spackle and gloss or nothing.
How do you see that the trailing egde is the cause?
I would suggest to check for pinholes. With thermal differences from land to water and the bending under load while flying one tine hole can mess up everthing.

Re: Inflatable Boards for Winging

Also somehow expected, it still struck me how much hand...
