Re: Learning 180 after mastering 360

My problem with mastering the 360 is that I cannot stay upright on the board. This is probably because I prefer to foil with a kite as small as possible. I manage it regularly with the 10 meter kite and a lot of power. But not with the small and fast Clouds. The key factor is NOT to think of it as ...

Re: Ozone Alpha 10 and 12 difference?

As already mentioned, the difference in the low end between 10 and 12m is small on the foil. There was a similar thread which nicely explains the theory behind it:

I hope this helps!

Re: Moses 633/483 combo on 2017 Fluente 93 (curved) mast?

Yes, no problem. I had the same setup for some time before upgrading to a newer mast (for other reasons).

Re: New hydrofoil / wave kite and bar: Kauper-XT

Ok, no real review on the Bar yet on this page, plenty on the German forum so I will make a start: I have the bar but not the kites, had just upgraded my quiver so didnt want to change kites again. Thus, flying he Pintxo Bar with both Duotone Mono and Ozone Alpha. The bar is superlight (noticeable a...

Re: Hydrofoiling in 10 knots - Is it that hard?

10 kn on a hydrofoil is not really light wind, the more experienced foilers will likely be on 9m kites. Lightwind riding on a foil has a lot to do with skills, so your observation that the good foilers make it look easy is correct. Its mainly about keeping the apparent wind going all the time and us...

Re: Light wind location

Any suggestions on good foil setups for learning? I would suggest you go with a modular system that allows you to upgrade/ change the gear and components along the way as you improve and adapt to your specific conditions. I would recommend a wing size of about 1200 and a medium size board with some...

Re: Reasonably Minimalistic Bar For Foiling

Check out the Kauper XT Pintxo Bar. Super light, very minmal and great for foiling. Has a low V so should match your Cabrinha kites (but you can always add a line separator to make an Y if needed).
I think they dont ship to the US but if you are in Europe, I am sure you will find a way to get one.

Re: Moses masts/struts

Hi Have the same set up and changed mast about a year ago from the "old", slightly curved to the new straight 91cm. I was surprised how much of a difference it was. The new mast feels much smoother, I guess its because of the slightly reduced thickness, so it has less drag. It was worth the change f...

Re: 360 - tight or wide kiteloops?

completely depends on how tight your 360 is. They are proportional. Super tight pivot style 360, super tight kite loop. Nice big smooth circle, nice big drawn out loop to keep the power on throughout the move. Agree. Also depends on wind strength related to kite size. If overpowered, you go for a v...

Re: Thoughts on drilling into my Moses mast base plate...

Try shimming the stabiliser first. It will take you minutes to try out and does not involve major DYI work with potential lethal outcome for your foil.
