Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

My next monofoil try after half a year brake was not easy - unexpectadly. My new setup as on picture looked easiest for me, as 1500cm^2 Space Skate 65cm should be slow enough to allow my reactions and it was not. I was fighting with jumping monofoil for two hours to harness it before first 100m flig...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

I love boosting potential of Sonic 2.
Improved airtightness => better drift and relounch are most wanted.
I would accept a bit lower AR and fatter profile for that.

Re: Leg burn

To decrease leg burn look at your legs work. Both legs should be bent at the same angle on average. You can help a bit changing board trim angle in relation to the foil axis. If front leg bents/burns more, put a washer under back mounting plate screws. And vice versa, put washer under front screws i...

Re: Why isn't sliding rope bar more prevalent?

Have played around with both a slider and a pivot going back and forth for months at a time. For use with a hardshell harness I prefer the slider. Do we need with shell harness the spreader bar at all ?! Hard shell itself can play the role of a spreader bar. It needs only to be a bit stiffer. And t...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

@ Denisesewa Thank you for sharing your experiments outcomes. I am especially interested in your opinion about foil reflex. As a monofoil rider you are a supercomputer!!! Keep in mind that CoG is 2m above monofoil, so the setup is highly unstable in many ways and you are good enough to control pitch...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

So now having 3 sessions on the monofoil I find the pitching down @ higher speed to be not much fun especially when riding down the face of a wave or larger swell, I spent the past few days building another wing to the same shape as first one but this time with 30 mm wide reflex on trailing edge of...

Re: Ram air caught in surf disaster

Just yesterday it happens my kite was caught in surf at the middle of the bay. I pulled the leash to prevent kite damage, then swam to my bar and relounch Soul10 after 2 min. Was easy. At least this time.😎

Re: Duotone PIQ sensor failure

Thank you a99, but it was posible to do nothing, as the PIQ dod’t react to the switch button.
The product is under the name of Duotone, so probably has Duotone seftware.
