Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

I dont think we are haters in any way, and might be very wrong as said... :roll: Yes, it seems like a very different sport as some point out, so could be right, makes no sense to discuss in a kiteforum, although foilsurfing and SUPfoiling and windfoiling are also shared here now and then as some do ...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

Must say I don't believe in it either, eventhough the big brands do :roll:

But let's see, either the wrong bus, or the right one.

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

Foiling didn't really catch on at the start. Only when it became more efficient and practical did it start to really grow. The wings look inefficient and awkward now, but they have room to become more efficient and handle better - and riders will become more skilled, switch stance etc. I don’t thin...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

It still looks odd and goofy, not smooth or aestethic in any way, compared to every other wind discipline, windsurf or windfoil or kitesurf or kitefoil or whatever. And eventhough everyone says it works with small wings in little wind, we always see loads of wind in the videos, where you could even...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

I still think it is extremely individual. I havent found it easier on the bigger wings, and I got from just over 500 cm2, through the midsized 7-800, to the 11-1200 cm2 sized. Because you ride with more power/kite with a smaller wing, and you dont change feet while going downwind but either at the s...

Re: Line length, gybing and down-looping

Okay, let me rephrase it then: Some prefer to tack, unfoiling, if too low wind to make a foiling jibe. As they dont wanna risk getting slack lines. The start of the tack will be pretty good, as with an 18 or 21 m2 racekite, where you head directly upwind, it gives you a lot of lift even when margina...

Re: Line length, gybing and down-looping

Yes, only talking about surviving in the lightest wind here. Many racers only do tacks in this wind, for the same reason. And by heading upwind it is sometimes just less downwind indeed, for racegear, if a tad over survival wind, your are right Pedro. The reason for jibing is not only to go downwind...

Re: Line length, gybing and down-looping

I use a "Custom" prototype of ketos easy but a bit smaller. In between officials freeride and easy. Ok tanks for the clarification abot loop. But i feel and experienced that if i go toward the kite i get not enough line tension to put the big 15m2 in an short turn radius... am i the only one to exp...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Thanks again for all the Input, but could you also Mention how Long/how many sessions you took to get it dialed in? 3-400 sessions I would guess, took some years to learn, and still improving slooooowly :roll: Could do it occasionally pure luck and very rare when starting over 5 years ago, after a ...
