Re: Gear for going fast

Have you attempted to tune the stabilizer angle or the strut-to-fuselage connection to allow your current setup to be stable at higher speeds? I would also second short lines, well-powered tube kite, etc. but those won't overcome the sheer problem that your current foil is not designed to go as fast...

Re: New to Foil Kiting... Harness?

I switch between Ride Engine slider and Dakine Vega. On the Vega I have a hook and slider. The Vega is mostly cloth and a minimal seat harness. I think alternating keeps my back happy. +1 for the Vega as a minimalist harness option that moves the hook point down where it belongs (at/below hip hinge).

Re: Foil racing - crashes + danger level?

It's likely that as an amateur on the course, you'll be so far out of sync with the pack that you'll be clear behind in almost every situation. Most back-fleet racing is pretty solitary at the end of the day, once you're off the starting line. Like Dave said, foiling is inherently dangerous and thos...

Re: Goodbye to the sport that I love

Bulge at L4/L5, bad herniation at L5/S1. Kiting makes me feel better, but definitely recommend foiling and getting out of the "skateboarding on water" side of the sport. I spent about 18 months doing twice-weekly physical therapy before getting back on the water, and continue to do my regimen 2-3x w...

Re: The Hydrofoil Air Jibe w/Foot Stance Change & Downloop

You seemed sold on Delta, Not saying they don't make good carbon foils, never seen one, but with carbon comparison can be tricky as there can be many different types and quantity of carbon cloth used in the lay up. Just like some brands may use 5% ordinary carbon just for the top skin, others may u...

Re: The All-New AV8 Collection from Cabrinha

Did anybody compare this foil to any good racing machine? Cab Driver, would you please? - what is a weight of the foil and board? My guess is 2,8kg for the foil and 3,0kg for the board. - how does look the pro box adaptor for the rails? what is the price? - AR 6.4 for racing. I would expect rather ...

Re: Gin Marabou Water Relaunchable Single Skin

Before the excitement levels go off the scale, can we have someone actually fly these kites rather than just read the marketing on the website. Would love to have a real comparison between the Gin and roughly similar kites such as the Peak4. I also seem to remember seeing on the internet a similar ...
