Re: Mystic Foil Seat Harness

For foiling, the Mystic foil harness is awesome and where I kite I see many other foilers using that harness.

Re: Speed Record for hydrofoiling ?

BTW, there's also some ongoing research on (super-)cavitating foil sections that have acceptable performance in non-cavitating mode (low speed mode) by adding a tail to the wedge.

Re: sea anchor!

Some people use a laundry mesh bag for self rescue. They pack down very small and can be stuffed into your wetsuit (chest area).

Here's one from Walmart for $4.70 :-)

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

Hmmm ... 12 pages of messages if a pro athlete gets injured but if somebody dies because he/she couldn't release the threads are typically much shorter. I feel sorry for Ruben but the 0.1% that throw 50 foot mega loops and turn the bar by 90 degrees (!!!) and touch/move the quick release need a diff...

Re: Harness replacement webbing

Do the kitesurfing harness manufacturers use nylon webbing or do they use polyester webbing?
