Re: foil cavitating, ventilating, broaching, solution

1. More time and practice will help learn the limits of your setup and get the most out of it. 2. A longer mast could help but downside is cost $ and less maneuverability. 3. A narrower board could help, but downside is cost $$ and maybe harder water start and different feel. I have done all three a...

Re: Foiling kite 8-13kn on a budget

One kiter’s 8-13knots is another’s 10-15 is another’s 6-10 knots. I kited the other day when all the meters said 7 knots, but I didn’t have struggle to start, then a few days later the meters said 11 but I couldn’t start without working hard. Light wind Numerical measurements are unreliable at best.

Re: Foiling kite 8-13kn on a budget

Any mainstream 10-12m closed cell foil kite could work if you’re on budget and price is right but you won’t have an easy time wave riding with it in that wind. An 850cm2 foil is considered small and fast today (I ride a 710cm2 with 11m or 15m closed cell race kite in that wind), so you need a little...

Re: Wrinkles, WTF

The original poster didn’t use peelply right? Just perforated film? No wonder it wrinkled.

Re: Stringer in small foilbord?

How much 280g uni D CF should I put under the 200g twill CF on a 110cm strapless board with core of 20mm 80kg Divinicell?

Full length uni D? Multiple layers staggered?

Will have some extra twill patches on pressure points.

I need maximum Strength/stiffness as I ride race style at times.

Thanks,

Re: Building our own start Ramp for foils

Clever!

You may find winding the bridle onto the bar one turn past the first pulley or two will make for less tangles when you’re setting up, though if you wind too far you won’t be able to lay out the wingtips fully.

Re: Sonic or Soul for foiling progresion

I foil 1 year ago, just jybing yet, not tacking. I have an Hiperlink v1 UL 12m, 2 years ago, now quite damaged,. Why is the hyperlink damaged? can it be repaired? That’s already a good kite for learning. Save money and get it fixed up and tuned. Wait till you’re better at foiling to buy a new expen...

Re: Light wind/low end - span or area?

Buoyancy is negligible, but doesn’t increased volume mean thicker airfoil and therefore increased lift, decreased stall speed, but increased drag?
