Re: boxer looping

If this kite has good depower, and I reckon it has if flying very forward in the window as tests say, I would embrace this feature that it has loads of power when looped :thumb: You dont ever need to downloop the kite, at least not when turning or jibing, so if too much power use upsweeps here inste...

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

Should the mast be moved all the way forward it's usually 2cm from the back ?.. I dont know, as I dont know how long your track is? Horst puts one of his 12 cm further forward when removing his stab. You could go conservative and put it a bit forward only, and push it up, and as you ride strapless ...

Mast should be moved somewhat forward, from your normal trim with a stab, as your col moves back :D

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

I am not dissing windfoil. It was very deliberate I chose the words kitefoil can be fun in "way less wind than needed for fun windfoil". As riding on a huge formula windfoil board with a 10 m2 sail is maybe fun in itself, IF it wasnt for kitefoil where you can ride in this wind with a very lively ag...

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

Sorry if an odd question, but what does the headline of this thread mean?

"Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?"

Not being native English born I don't know "Intel" from anything but the Intel Coorporation making ICs and CPUs and similar.

But assume it is slang for ???

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

Amazing we got so different views on this. I have been windsurfing since the start in 1978-79. A few years ago I went windfoiling too, and many of the youngsters here windfoil too, since a year or 1½ year - they learn extremely fast. The "old men" dont really want to change ha haa, as they know it w...

Re: Foiling in the dark

I've done this too now and then, mostly when bigger chop waves and I dont wanna stop because it is good, or I might have gone out after sunset as my only option to get out. You are spot on, one can ride in quite dark conditions really okay. Only difficulty is to avoid ventilation, as one can not see...

Re: Anyone here windsurf foil?

I did not understand your first post kitejumping. Took it as kites were not allowed at this lake, thus you wanted to windfoil instead? And now there are suggestions about using a kite on a windfoil? Was a bit confused about your question, but can see now that you want a huge board, but it wont help ...
