Re: Importance of the stabilazer?

I think your setup is fine. Learning to foil does take time. That stabilizer is small for the wing. but should still work. Probably the pitch response is quicker as a result and this may make it harder to learn but, that said, a few people ride with no stabilizer at all for max maneuverability. Prob...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

We are a species of animal here. All our actions, just as those of the other animals, should be considered “natural”. Anything and everything we do, think, say, get emotional about- its all a product of this environment that produced us in the first place. If we pollute and/or alter the climate of t...

Seems they are getting roughly 24% of their power from renewables, mostly bagasse - not bad for locally sourced and carbon neutral.

Its a shame about the spill. Awful mess.

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

...And however well we adapt, we can’t bring back species once extinct. I wouldn't be so sure. There is an effort to bring back some extinct species using genetic engineering. There is a question, of course, who decides what is worth saving. But make no mistake, if you piss off the good money onto ...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

Homo Sapiens for example is an extremely adaptable species. Adaptable enough to fix this mess. Sure, it’s just that the poorest with the lowest footprints will suffer the most. And however well we adapt, we can’t bring back species once extinct. My point was we are more than adaptable enough to mak...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

No need to over analyze wind charts. We know they are taken with a grain of salt. These are simply the same charts as for the standard dacron roam, and yes they do seem conservative (for a change).
