Re: New twintip board size?

If you liked the size of your old board, I think you'd like the 136 x 41. It's the closer in size to your old board. The 140 x 42 would feel good in lighter winds, but you probably wouldn't like it in the higher wind ranges. Just my 2 cents.

Re: The sad decline of aging pro kiteboarders

Yes, it's just the great circle of life. I don't like to see my heroes getting old either, but it's no worse than our aging along with them. Would we feel better if our heroes stayed young while we aged into the sunset? Nah. That would be totally demeaning. If I can't dunk any more, then I really do...

Re: Does this cut needs stiches ? Repair Advice Needed

If the "cut" does not go through the canopy (i.e., it is not a rip or tear), then I would not stitch and would probably leave well enough alone and use the kite as is.

Re: Does this cut needs stiches ? Repair Advice Needed

Your photographs appeared after I sent the previous post. It looks like someone already patched with Tear-Aid squares, which are really designed for bladder repairs, not canopy repairs. I don't think I'd stitch them. If they can be removed, I'd probably replace them with sailtape patches and stitch....

Re: Does this cut needs stiches ? ;)

By "cut", you mean tear or rip? If it's longer than 2.5 cm (1 inch), then patch on both sides of the kite canopy with ripstop sailtape and stitch around the perimeter of the patch. Use UV resistant thread to stitch. A sewing machine is easier, but you can hand stitch if you don't have access to a ma...

Re: Recommendation Good footstraps for foil board?

I have big feet and use the Slingshot Surf Straps comfortably. A lot of people also like the half strap/hook option that would be even less confining.

So you'd take the added weight of a double skin kite with a large bridle and speed system and add the weight of a bladder and valves? Sounds great, let me know where I can buy one.

Re: Slingshot NF2 Foil - Beginner

I finally crossed over to the Dark Side and started foiling. I am using the Hoverglide NF2 with the Slingshot Simulator board. I've only been out 2 sessions so far, but they were loads of fun. My initial impressions are that the equipment combination will be perfect for me. The board is larger, but ...
