Re: Helmet is so noisy:(

I wear a shred ready scrappy white water helmet. Cheap, light and super comfortable due to adjustable ratchet system. https://www.shredready.com/collections/whitewater-helmets/products/2019-shred-ready-super-scrappy-whitewater-helmet?variant=13852622946415 I am prone to eardrum bursts so I pair it w...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12m or 15m

Disagree, 15m has a bigger span and floats on the wind. Using long lines (27m is long) it i nearly is impossible te get input from the kite and it makes it hard to steer. 10m in 5 knots i have never seen, i have seen it with a 15m. we can agree to disagree....plus knot readings are like opinions......

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12m or 15m

I just got rid of 15. Just never used it even on race wing. If the wind is sub 10 I put big wing on and 10m with 27m lines (I ride that combo in 5 to 8kts). I guarantee you if you are riding the light wind edge you are more likely to keep a long lined 10m in the air over a 12 or 15....they weigh to...

Re: 633/91/483 whistling relief and new stab?

So I wet sanded the trailing edge of my mast with 1000grit like the "exfabrica" video shows and its mostly silent now. Just a little hum if im going fast. Thanks for the help!!! totally silent at any speed or angle is bliss, and you would never accept anything else once you get total silence. I hav...

Re: When do you hydrofoil?

... So amazed to see how many of you riding hydrofoils in way more wind (compared to kite size) than most ride wave/surfboards? Or is it simply for the fun just being out on the upper limit, almost survival mode, and not because you can carve and surf on the hydrofoil? ... I’m wondering about this ...

Re: When do you hydrofoil?

I have not been on a TT in 3 years. Foil from 6kts to 30 in Canada as long as the water is not frozen and the air temps are above 0C. When I look at TT riders it looks so inefficient and painful plowing through the water. :-)

Re: Moses 1000 details wanted

I am trying to understand what would be the best to kite with the peak4 8m (ideally 5m) when it can still fly but I cant get up on foil (with 633 and 483). 1000, 790 or other? I have the 800 but it stalls at a higher speed than the 633 and that makes the 633 much easier (for me) to jibe in low wind...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

Third attempt to sand the 800 wing and it went completely silent. One would expect it to be done at the factory but it’s fun to succeed in what manufacturers can’t do. It’s an amazing wing. My new favorite. I guess the next one to get would be the 671 What sanding method did you use for reference?
