Re: Toby, no wingfoil forum?

But isn't this how it always works? If you want to read or discuss hydrofoil, you also have to visit the main forum instead of the hydrofoil forum, as so many posts in the main because hydrofoil has grown so big now. Also, if you are only interested in TT riding, you have to browse through all the w...

Re: Moses W 633 speed

Foil, the only reason if it works like that, is because the trim is different.

You can change the stab aoa to get it like you want, to obtain more speed because of more control :thumb:

Overall drag of the stab is only a very small parameter, it is all about control.

Re: Moses W 633 speed

plasma180 is right :D It's not about the stab, it is primarily you. But why do you want to go faster on this very wing? You have got a really really big thus slow wing perfect for riding waves, overall lightwind fun, easy to learn stuff on this one too, and great fun can turn on a dime. Going fast i...

Re: 33% or 50% size gap for foiling quiver

Hmmm, I think the percentage could be misleading as there is not (to my knowledge) any standard for sizing/gaps in this respect....

If we got a 6 and a 9 m2 kite.

The the 6 is 33 % smaller than the 9.

But the 9 is 50 % bigger than the 6.

So what are we talking about here???

Re: Considering a switch to foil kites

Aheeeem...

Yes launching a foil kite is really easy, but landing a LEI kite is a lot easier than a foil kite if open space and no stake present.

Up and downsides of both types :wink:

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

In Denmark no problems kitesurfing (or any watersports), all over. Beaches not closed, but as the water is only 7 degree celcius, no "crowds" will gather the next 3 months anyways at popular "bathing" spots. All outside exercise "stations" are closed, all fitness centers closed, all dinner places ex...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

Here is a video taken with the GoPro Max and the U.Go linemount: Sometimes the arms of the mount are visible in the video, which is a bit annoying. I've found this alternative linemount which is similar to the U.Go mount but with shorter arms, which should make them less visible in the video. Does ...

Re: The Duotone Wing

It's a downside if the lack of a center strut or "fin" is the reason it does not hang as stable with a boom.

But apart from that I only see advantages and not one single disadvantage, so I find it way better, no comparison :thumb:

Re: Time to spare, time to change

No, I’m not suggesting you have to agree with anyone, or you can’t debate or even argue. Simply suggesting we try as much as possible to remain civil and make an effort to refrain from personal attacks. Really good advice indeed :thumb: Time to change, not only now, but always "seek".

I cant attach pictures, dont know why, i will try later again.

Have you scaled them down in pixel size?

If straight out of a camera or phone, they are way too big, and it wont work...

Try downsizing and it will work :thumb:
