The new lot is at Kite Point, and it is finished.
Agreed. Smells like rotten fish but otherwise awesome.

Re: Self launch and self land option

I suggest attaching the 5th line if you think you are doing a lot of self landings in nuking conditions Ugh, but then water-relaunch after a kite tumble is impossible to resolve (5th-line wrapped over the canopy and choking the kite). Practical considerations for modern foilkites: Soul and Hyperlin...

Re: Kite Mag Kite and Board Test Results 2019

Article reveals results in physical units of N force and kg weight. That's a big step towards objectivity.

Did anyone put this data in a single table yet?

Re: Liquid Force Galaxy sharp nose - safety issue

My carbon foil (Liquid Force Impulse) stays on its side and just bobs in place when I crash. Then it slowly sinks and eventually comes down wind. That "carbon" foil (large LF Impulse carbon wingset, carbon fuse, AL mast, lightweight composite 4'8" galaxy foilboard -- still ends up being a >5kg asse...

Re: A case for full face?

What is jack-knife fall ? Never heard that It is when your body falls over the down-wind rail of the board, like a hinged knife folding closed, caused by losing your balance in the side direction. Feet stay with the board, upper body falls towards the water, and the foil wings rise up towards the s...
