Re: Negative rocker TT?

Maybe read up on Savitsky planing hull theory if you are really interested in answers. Any chance you could give some insight or a primer of what to expect as far as the relationship of Savitsky theory's and flat planing hulls engaged at an angle (edged) with relatively continuous rocker and variab...

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

When rational people are allowed to spend their money as they wish,.... Oooo! and I have to add - Where have you ever met a rational person? I never have.

Re: Negative rocker TT?

And TT its almost not even planing its semi displacement planing This, as I read it, is wrong. As soon as water is moving off of the tail of a TT, that hull is planing and displacement is no longer a factor. Displacement requires volume in the hull.

Something else to consider is that polarization hides some detail in the water, you cannot see the waves as clear as with normal waves. The brain is used to see the reflections and infer how the wave looks like, when you remove part of the light the brain perceives it as flatter than it really is. ...

Re: Sweat shop kite manufacturing

MV By adding the bit in brackets (MV) it was a personal comment not a generalisation, the word “an” used in the same context denoted a singularity. An American, (you) , not all the Americans, not some of the Americans on this topic etc My amusement stems largely from your constant stream of cod psy...
