Anybody know if a hydrofoil with foil down can drift faster than a kite? (Small ribs drift faster than kites in rideable wind in my experience.) Presumably if you tried to tow it, the hydrofoil would weave about like the donkey tethered to a train and maybe catch up if the tow slowed up for a few s...

Re: How to rescue downed kitesurfer?

My example: Sideshore wind, correctly powered 10m warm sunny TT session, long sandy beach and no breaking waves. Travel buddy has a kite bladder explosion 500m offshore, rolls up lines and is sitting there... facing a long difficult swim with wet laundry, or a long boring swim with lost gear. What w...

If continously thick and hard, you don't need to worry.

What would you do? (Cumbuco coconut kitemare)



(Man pulled up a tree by a looping kite, which remains looping and keeps him stuck up there)

I'm a creative person but feeling stumped here... Any thoughts on how to lend help in such a situation?

Re: S-Mart Protocol (landing and launching procedure)

"Chickenloop only in hand" - we're making the kiter wait to hook in until the kite is in the launch position and full of wind? I know what you're trying to do here (auto-flagout if kiter lets go), but I won't be taking my eyes off a kite in a launch position to fuss with a donkey dick (or to assembl...

We get jelly fish the size of basket balls in Melbourne that will knock you off your foil board

(I travel there occasionally, good to know what to watch for, thx)

Kites are shipping with even more user-adjustable features...

Has anyone here changed their PMA settings?

Feedback appreciated.
