Re: Aluula Composites | Episode # 135

@Toby As a matter of fact, I did drop a Cloud on a rock and not much happened. I’ve had Clouds for over three years. Nearly 500 Woo sessions on them and still going strong.

Re: Aluula Composites | Episode # 135

I loved and always promoted the idea of less weight and more rigidity. Aluula hopefully is that kite, but for over 5-6 years we've already had a much lighter, cheaper and faster turning kite - the BRM Cloud. 10m Aluula - 5.1lbs 10m Cloud - 4.3lbs A pound lighter. Based on review vids, a good bit fas...

Re: Who are the foilers?

Judging by what you see - what do you think are the percentages of foilers broken down between - kite - windsurf - surf/SUP - wake - kite 60% - Windsurf 0% - surf 40% - wake 0% Based on 3 kitefoilers and 2 surffoilers ...have seen them on rare occasions....it's not that popular....seeing actually a...

Any concave top deck / big rocker pocket boards out there?

Been looking all over for that perfect 39-36" inch pocket board for freestyle/wave + boosting/tricks. Foot hooks, not strapless. Do you know if there's anyone out there making them? Could be mainstream or custom, doesn't matter Ideal specs: – Concave top deck – centerline holes for foot hooks – 3-5l...

Any Vantage kite reviews?

Lot of promise in these kites yet I haven’t heard from anyone using them in the field yet. Who has tried them? What do you think?

Re: Lift 200 for kiting

Re: Lift 200 for kiting

I used Lift's 90, 110, 130, 150, 170 and 200 extensively. Of those I returned the 90 and 200 after about 10 sessions. All the other ones are IMO the best freestyle/wave foils out right now. Easily better than Moses 633. More fun, more carvy and more durable. 200 is unusable for kiting - too much fro...

Re: state of the art wave kite foiling

P.S. (super secret tip) Electric skateboards like Lacroix Lonestar, Bamboo Evolve GT, Onewheel and oldschool Carver skateboards allow you to work on the same wave techniques on land, essentially doubling your time learning while keeping that kite and foil stoke. It's not an coincidence that you see...

Re: state of the art wave kite foiling

I love kite foiling waves and can't get enough of it. So much more to discover! Per earlier mentions - go to school on Oyvind, Adam Withington, Fred Hope, Kai Lenny, Ketos, BRM, Horue and Core rider vids and give it some time – foil surfing will evolve into much more complex ride sequences as more p...

Re: Peak Foil

I think we all might be a bit spoiled when it comes to expectations on kite and foil progress :)
