Re: Foil kites - lost of center lines?

I had 3 of 4 break all at once on a boost landing with a hard downloop. Hand recoiled into my harness hook and broke my hand. That was nasty. Downloop was late and it was finishing with my board edging hard in the water. Kite just flagged out on the water not surprisingly.

Re: Keswick Clarendon Beach Closure

I also stay away because of this drama. I do enjoy the location once on the water but its not worth the tension and discomfort. This is supposed to be fun. The entire Simcoe scene, with so much private land at all access points is odd. I also understand the frustration of true locals who purchased a...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

What makes that photo great are the two people on the beach. :lol: The gentleman looks like he's going to supervise the operation, or else he's pretty satisfied to see that "dang kitebirder" go down. Or maybe he's hoping for a total kitemare like a NASCAR fan hoping for a pile-up. The "young lady" ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I botched a downloop yesterday, 10m hit the water, somehow twisted and started spiraling. It wasn't pulling me aggressively but it didn't look good. A twisted ball of mess. Once it settled the leading edge was pointed down but the non-bridled side was facing the wind. I tugged on each steering line...

Re: the art of the loop!

Standard move with Souls on low end of their ranges. Biggish with half sheet. Small with lots of sheet and you choke and pinwheel the kite....zero power....useful in a downloop gybe sometimes because of the power they generate otherwise.

Re: Hydrofoil Big Air

Good smooth surfaces and always cleaned with windex pre session to get rid of contaminants is a place to start. Does everyone do this? I've never heard of cleaning my surfaces (mast, fuselage and wings?) with windex. Makes sense, but does it really make a difference? If you ride at high speeds and ...

Re: Moses 2019

Anyone know a source in the USA that actually has the Havok wing/stabilizer in stock? I don't feel like making a bunch of phone calls, I just want to click "buy" on a website somewhere. Silent Sports in Canada I think will ship to the US but they show the wings as out-of-stock. I got them from Sile...
