Re: Secondary fin recommendation for BRM Paipo

I use twin tip fins.

Works much better, the board gets a little bit more loose.

It might be doable, but you will struggle so much more.

Re: Strutless Kites Cloud vs. Gong

I wouldn't say it's fair to compare with the C1.

C5 and D0 are almost a different kites. It depowers much much better, and the throw is very short.

I haven't ridden the gong yet. They feel a bit heavier compared to cloud but probably more durable.

Re: Just how common are foot injurys in kiteboarding?

Hi I got a lisfranc injury while landing from a high windsurfing jump. This was 17years ago. At this time this injury was almost unheard of, took 4 weeks to diagnose. I had a surgery lots of screws.

Review for alpinefoil surfboard (CX-V6 S Wave)?

Hi, Anyone that have tried Alpinefoil surfboard (CX-V6 S Wave) as a kite surfboard in waves? I havn't found any review online. It's quite expensive, so I would like to hear from someone who actually tried it before buying. http://www.alpinefoil.com/pages-hydrofoil-kite-foil/board/foilboard-alpinefoi...

Re: how to pitch a new trim to my naish torch ...

I've done it, just unscrew one screw under the plastic cover.

A nightmare to get the screw back into position, at least it was for me. Would not recommend doing it on the beach :-)

Re: Need advice from Naish Torch users

12m & 8m for unhooked freestyle is too much gap....for freedride it is ok.... Maybe you're right. But this is what I use my Torches for /unhooked/. Just checked and their team riders most favorite is the 10. Probably I am looking for an excuse ... :) Only thing that bothers me is the worse low end ...
