Re: Jake Kelsick Flying the Code Zero

great , curious to get more information , and test it :-) Nice video! I am often "surprised" to read the special light weight goal of design of a new kite , ... but not communicate on the actual weight... I really do not understand , since it is the main feature of such design philosophy ... NorthKB...

Re: Flysurfer Boost 1 vs Boost 2?

I bought a brand new boost2 in good discount, 5m; here is the test video ; I like it a lot , compatible with those irregular conditions on a hydrofoil.

Re: Low wind body dragging

My technic in ultimate light wind, lei or foilkite is to just simply swim directly up wind ! With a bit of energy it also helps to keep the kite in the air . So , kite at zenith and you swim facing the wind... Frustrating becuse the kite does not help to anything but efficient. Depending on your kit...

Re: the Hawk from Pansh

Picture of this little rope : IMG_20220811_092704.jpg A more nice way to do it is to simply insert a stopper (like a pearl with a hole in the center) along the sliding rope that goes through this pulley, between the pulley and the C bridle side ; if the stoper is close to C bridle connection, mixer ...

Re: the Hawk from Pansh

Indeed, not hard work. Just add a line between the Z and the yz1. If line is short (15cm in my memory), mixer is locked like standard.
If line is longer (say 40 cm to be confirmed), it is 50% original 50% pulley.
If line is very long, 100 % pulley

Re: the Hawk from Pansh

Fully agree. I tested it with a normal mixer. By just adding a small line in the mixer that engages the pulley later on. I can set it easily to swap from : (A)-original mixer (B)- or standard mixer (C)- or amix of the two= original mixer on 50 % f bar stroke and standard mixer on remaining 50% bar s...

Re: Advice for boosting on a foil?

make it very progressive, low height to learn, in very light wind, say 50 cm then 1 meter, and do a lot of jumps at 1m, 1.5 m , when you minimise your landing speed and your spin, just the time to master your body management and landing method ; start with the biggest kite you have to get more lifti...

Re: now foil kiters are saying their kites drift better

You are right also, and drifting capacity is a pluri-design parameter. We can also add the inertia of the kite (meaning weight in the air + weight of air traped in the kite like closed cells or inflated parts) . The smaller, the easier the kite will start going downwind to follow the rider. But over...
