Re: wake foiling

certainly a very nice feeling - Not being connected to a boat or a kite. It might even inspire me to learn to surf foil. Our boat isn't the best at kicking up a wake but it worked well enough. Area of wing I think was 1300cm2 but it caught the wake well. Will have to practice the pumping to try and ...

wake foiling

I know we're on a kite forum , but wanted to share this. I'm usually foiling with a kite but got the chance to try a big wing behind a boat the otherday. It was way easier than I thought it would be to foil the wake without a rope. Have any of you tried it and what set up are you using? We used the ...

Re: Gong Freewave

I really enjoyed foiling in Sri Lanka all summer on my 6.8. I found the bar pressure a little on the heavy side but everything else I loved about it.
Nice solid loop
Direct
Build quality on a par with big brands.
Price and customer service were phenomenal.

Re: Which small kite ?

4m Ozone Uno smallest I've flown at 100kg on an Axis freeride wind (545) it did deform a little when starting.. Need to cut down on the pork pies I guess.
Love my HK Fury Pro 6m but need it in a smaller size too.

Re: 360 - tight or wide kiteloops?

Yup I was well powered during that clip but it's one of the few that show kite and bar and foil. I was trying to keep them tighter to stay close to the go pro ;) Big / powered loops you've got to run with them and therefore radius will be bigger. Tight loops for tight 360s. I find foils with a highe...

Re: 360 - tight or wide kiteloops?

Agreed. The exit of the 360 is practically the same as a carve from toeside to heelise with a downloop. Practicing these is a great way to get a feel for the second half of the 360. Heres a clip to show a few that include the bar and kite as much as possible. Apologies for poor slomo quality, wasn't...

(May til Oct) http://www.whenitswindy.com/wp/?page_id=794 I would love to hear about the winter season and where works best fro...

Re: February Foil Destination - Caribbean

Hi El guapo, Its a shame that when you looked into foiling on Holbox you didn't find out that its a real gem. But its not the first time I've heard the myth of Holbox being to shallow to foil. (always perpetuated by someone who hasn't foiled there) So lets bust that myth... Yes there is a shallow la...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

cheers It was a Revl Arc with built in gimble. It has been a great camera however it seized up 2 weeks after this session. Never touched salt water or sand. Cleaned it every time.

Re: One vs two front straps on board

Two front straps toeside can work just fine. I thought at first it would be problematic but found out that there is no massive issue. BTW don't be in any rush to go strapless do what feels right for you.
