Re: Learning to jump with the foil With a kite, BTW

I am thinking that I want to jump on hydrofoil with kite and wonder if foot hooks are good? straps much better? I see that it is possible to jmp strapless but are thinking that to learn straps is the way? In both feet or just front? Thanks, any experience with this?

Re: hybrid discipline: "Kite-Big-Foil" = wingfoil pulled by kite

Maybe Im wrong, but IMO is painful to swim with a kite packed between you and 30L board. The kite is underwater, I can not paddle correctly so in that case I push the board while swimming. We are taking about lightwind, so the kite would not be small. I agree with bragnouff, it is preferable for me...

Re: hybrid discipline: "Kite-Big-Foil" = wingfoil pulled by kite

...... A foilboard with 30-40l does this job as well. You don´t need a sluggish 70l board for that. I personally prefer something fast, agile and fun, also in light winds. Also, with a 14m2 single skin, a 900cm2 wing is enough to get you going in 3-4 knots if you know what you are doing. I will try...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I do also like to have the bar (when correctly powered) with the arm more extended. This means (in my most used sizes of kites, 4 and 6 sq m) that when I sheet all the way in, the kite back stalls quite allot. I can see also that it can be comfortable that (when fully sheeted in) the kite does not b...

Re: test of Hysper v2 from Sky Country, relaunchable single skin

It is, specially because the bar feedback is much grater for this small kites than for the large ones, but I will have to work more on this myself to understand better. I got the 11m in "normal" cloth. I havent had a chance to test since we have good wind :P but I weighted it since I was a bit ofusc...

Re: test of Hysper v2 from Sky Country, relaunchable single skin

For me, it is starting to make some sense to trim the bar (in this small kites) so that if you let go, there is still some bar pressure and the control of the kite starts to work a little as if you ride unhooked all the time? Specially for downwind runs?

Re: test of Hysper v2 from Sky Country, relaunchable single skin

thanks Regis, but it seems to me that with 25 knots or more, the kite does not keep its shape very well fully depowered?? If I let go of the bar or dont keep some presure on the bar (this seems to hapen with all single skins? more or less?) I have become accustomed to have back stall on the range of...
