Re: Kitefoil on wingfoil board?

I understood this question differently. Think that br44 asks for wing board with kitefoil. It’s interesting question, if the board is big enough to give you floatation and you mount kite foil will it be fun to use it with a 3m kite in low winds?

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

I had the same issue with one of the guys from Gong when ordering foil. At the end I ordered normally and in comment section of the order I added notice that I want different mast length. It took me three days of emailing to explain to the guy what I need.

Re: Gong v3 vs cloud E

Re: 15m Strutless

Gong strutless is stable in the low wind, I think down to 6 knots is easy to handle. Reverse relaunch works great if you know how to take the water away from the canopy before attempting. Main problem is wind range. It gets overpowered pretty easy. I have size 10 and on the website windrange is from...

Re: LEI with short lines

Thanks jumptheshark, I practice your 3rd way of handling overpowered conditions. Kite high and going as slow as possible. Not fun at all, but gets you back to shore.

LEI with short lines

Hi, I have question about short lines combined with LEI kite. I’m foiling most of the time with 600 cm2 free ride foil, and usually I’m ok with my 9 m surf kite. But I don’t like riding overpowered so some 7m kite will be perfect to have for those higher teens days. Since I’m not in situation to buy...

Re: Foil Gybe Advice

To the OP: can you gybe, heelside to toeside, on a TT or SB? This. If you don’t feel comfortable to do it on a TT and SB you will have hard time to make it on the foil. Master it on a SB and it will be much easier. You need to commit your self to lean against pull of the kite (not to follow) and so...
