Re: app for logging foil session

I used GeoTracker with my Samsung phone to track my sessions. It's free, fairly straightforward, and you can export your data. Shows you your track, gives max speed, average speed, total distance. It can also display the information as graphs. I cannot guarantee that it is available on the App Store.

Re: How fast are you really going?

I use my Garmin watch to track me (GPS).

On twintip on very flat water I have reached 28kts. Normal riding upwind is usually around 14-15kts for twintip or directional board (not trying to break any speed records).

Re: Duotone Daytona - high performance freerace foil

“Looks like” mike’s... Hmmm In the 80s i remember seeing a pontiac fiero with a “looks like” ferrari testarossa body kit. Hope they stuck with the high modulus fabrics and left out the carbon confetti this time. I know someone who studied very carefully a Mike's Lab hydrofoil (got his hands on one)...

You can build a big beach cabana with 10 kites. 🤣
What if you have an actually old kite that cannot be used.

He's using a perfectly good kite in the video :lol:

Re: High Pressure kite by Bruno Legaignoux

fully agree with kitexpert that decreasing diameter and (dramatically) increasing pressure will only work to a point. Then flying with scuba tanks and having 100psi explosions at a busy beach won't help much our sport grow. Someone mentioned dropstitch above. I wonder if this could be an option, es...

Balls, grow big balls.
Agreed. Then you can do what the other are saying. But first you need big balls to keep on pushing.

Re: How good do you have to be to foil?

If you move from beginner twintip to surfboard and make decent progression (ride upwind, downwind, and carve comfortably) you're good to start hydrofoiling. Just a couple of lessons to get the basics, then practice practice practice. Don't expect to be doing full foiling gybes too soon though (unles...

Re: Three strut Hybrid C kites for foiling?

Does someone have some experience with unhooking on the LF Solo or Airush Ultra (or similar one-strut kite) or other options? I think it just won't be worth your time. All C-kites advertise how stiff they are. Just about all of them have 5 struts. The 3 strut hybrids are already a compromise. The p...
