Re: Foil covers

A quick look at Ebay - it seems like a neoprene sheet large enough to make a mast/wing cover would work out at around $30 + shipping. Not sure about the wife part though ... perhaps she's not "good and loving" enough? :kiss:

Foil covers

What are people's experiences with protective foil covers? What's the best bang for the buck? Separate for front/back wing/mast, or integrated?

Re: Two quite quiver?

I'm 100 kg/220 lbs we have typically 6-10 knots, more seldom 10-20. 25-30 very unusual. I would not go out in 30 knots anyway. What should my two kite quiver look like? One of the positions are semi-locked for a Duotone Mono 13. I have a 9 Best Roca I never use. What should this 2 quiver kite quive...

Re: F-One Bandit Bladder Nipples are shit

I don't know, but it doesn't seem all that likely that only F-One would use this manufacturer for this part. I have to say though, I've never had this problem on any of my kites myself.

Re: Kitesurfing destination with non kiting partner/friends?

Portugal is interesting: but it has cold water & the wind at Guincho can make it extremely unpleasant to be on the beach. Also, as Dirk pointed out, definitely not a beginner spot. I think you need to decide whether your non kiters are more interested in just lying around on a beach & bars/night lif...

Re: This is funny...a Beach Deadman

I remember that...very scary...and amazing that he survived it. Lucky for sure but also very smart in his decision when to bail out of this. he is a really great guy and all up for our sport. Would have been a big loss for the sport if he had died. I don't think so... bailing out of a paraglider wi...

Re: Kitesurfing destination with non kiting partner/friends?

Hawaii? Accessible from Northern Europe? For a week? :-? Well that's 11 time zones, around 38 hours travel time each way with minimum 2 stop overs ... so not really. Cabarete? Possible, but still a long way to go for a week. I think I would go with one of the Greek islands - pretty accessible with a...

Re: LP Foils

Lighter is always better, for experienced no doubt, but also for beginners. So if a foil is nervous (jittery) it is not because of lightweight, it is the design that is like that. Nervous can be the same as "lively and good" for the experienced though, and bad for the beginner, so not that simple. ...

Re: LP Foils

Ha! It's like having different kites for different conditions. We're basically flying two wings when we're foiling. So, I take the kites and foils I'll need for the day. If I could only have one, I'd pick my LP 25". Yes, that's exactly what I mean. For some, that feeling is very uncomfortable. If "...

Re: LP Foils

I enjoy mine. I use the small wing on a 40" mast and a medium wing on a 25" mast I had them make. LPs are very loose when compared with other foils. I also have a NP surf small. When I switch back, the LP feels like I'm on ice. But again, I enjoy the totally different feeling of each foil setup. I ...
