Re: Unpredictable foil injury

A little followup. The knee specialist said it will heal in 3 weeks (6weeks from the fall) The ligament on the inside was slightly swollen with a bleeding inside. Grade 1 knee injury (not very serious). The meniscus and ACL was all good. But would probably have had damage if the twist would've been ...

Re: Unpredictable foil injury

As i remember the crash my foot was never caught in the strap, if it was then just very little. I think that the same would have happened if I was ridning strapless. And its probably safer to ride strapless in general. So to not correct when out of balance is maybe the best mindset here. Now my goal...

Unpredictable foil injury

Hi, I want to share this fall I had some weeks ago while foiling. Maybe some of you have the knowledge on how to Not end up with a twisted knee like I did.

Re: Sonic II ...Mixer issues ?

I have a Sonic 2 15m that i've been trying to trim alot. The problem was that the whole A level was much longer then all other bridles. The amount of Line in the mixer I had left to change B + C with wasn't enough to get the kite at the original settings. I was measuring all the bridles and calculat...

Re: Chubanga v2 2019

Mine should arrive next week, its comes with the Chubanga board also. How is it? Its a great improvement over my moses comet, no ventilation at all at any speeds upwinds or reaching. The glide during maneuvers its longer, which is a great improvement on my tacks in 5-6 knots, i can do all maneuvers...

Re: 2nd hand racekites for budget race equipment. What 2 buy?

Hi From what I've heard the R1V2 is possibly one of the best kites at the 2nd hand market if going fast is your main focus > because its so easy to handle and because then you have almost all its performance within reach even if you are not the most experienced foilkiter. I have not tried it though....
