Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Not sure water knows or cares how much currency was handed over in exchange for a product... and so many different types and sizes of foils even in the more economical price bracket. I think the currency may feel it, if going around a wing that was optimised by CRD and professional riders in many s...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Agree with what jumptheshark said, shouldn't be problem to just elongate the long center "B-Safe0" line, just take care safety works as it should and nothing can tangle at extra knots etc. It is absolute normal that it will shrink quite fast and quite a lot but I would expect it has some additional ...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Foil shape's net assymetry has less implicit pitching influence for short chord wings and all those other factors you mention above are also factors in the mix. Horst seems fine with high aspect foils though I think he likes even more the handling of a severe delta design due to it's pitch stabilit...

Re: Why a stabi, when wing foiling?

Nice, I just skipped his "wing7" video as the music is a bit difficult, while the one of Nr. 8 just fits so much better :D Great show as always: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyMaNUtsCZY Even if Groove missed my requested volume by 32% :roll: , the board is quite interesting, even if not in every ...

What about a Peak4 2,4 m²? Why a smaller size? As my impression is that I am not alone as light rider who wants to meet the joy of bigger waves in >30 knt, where the 3 m² just starts to get uncompfortable. Why exactly 2,4 m² I think it would fit very well in the row ... 4; 3; 2,4 m² as well as ... ...

Re: Riding unhooked tutorial

.. I am really looking forward to the next unhooked video from different angles - maybe from land would be good? How can I test, if my kite is trimmed not to backstall while completely depowered? is it possible to to start on land to unhook or in waist deep water? Hi, jumptheshark already named mos...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

.... i was going to order a 5m, but would a 4m be better? have never tried a peak, Hi, the 4 m² should be a good compromise if added to your 7 m² Hyperlink. The 5 m² should have much to much overlap if not totaly inside HLs windrange, and about the 3 m² you have been warned. IMHO if using a small b...

Re: No Leash? How to get your wingboard back

Thank You Gunnar, for repeating the test at sea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4Vr2sufg7g&t=158 Even if I would add that it depends a bit from situation, taking decision with or without into overall risk management: - if you are total beginner with dificulty in wing handling as flipping, it is be...

Re: Soul lines broken?

Very usual, in dirty, sandy, salty conditions and maybe not the highest level of maintanance, the yellow pulley line can react sensible and may break even after 25 days in worst case. In best conditions it is possible to have 100 sessions and more. It is important to wind up the lines inclusive the ...
