Re: Marginal wind tacking and big kite handling

It seems like the good riders don't turn upwind at all until the kite is at least at 12 o'clock, they keep riding at full speed in the direction of the old tack while the kite is rising. Then they make a relatively sharp turn with foot switch while riding the foil high followed by pumping the foil. ...

Re: Flysurfer is going to beat fishnets? (Release of VMG2)

Do those additional internal battens go all the way from the leading edge to the trailing edge? It's hard to tell from the pics in the first post by Horst Sergio or this pic from the Flysurfer website: https://flysurfer.com/files/2020/05/VMG2-Gallery-Team-5.jpg If you have any other pics or a pencil...

Re: Levitaz releases its R5 design for Olympia 2024

It's also odd since the other race foils went away from adjustable stabilizers. The ML and chubanga are permanently attached to the fuselage at a set angle. The stabilizer angle for ML foils is adjustable: http://www.mikeslab.com/instructions/ . The old Chubanga V2 was not adjustable, the new V3 mi...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Shhhh... watch your language. Of course the Faeroe Islands are not the primary focus here, that should be obvious. As of 3/20 the rate of testing was 50-60 times higher in South Korea than the US. And testing is big part of their success. There is no excuse, the US could have pulled this off, they h...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

kiteykitekite, nothing wrong with thinking about alternative solutions but something tells me experts have already looked at this and then abandoned it. Unfortunately also some of the middle aged people require intensive care (see the graph below). Today they typically survive (with some exceptions ...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

I can highly recommend this article, best article about COVID-19 I've read in quite some time. Thanks "dorant" for sharing. It explains very well why China and South Korea have been so successful in curbing the spread and it also explains why it's so important to implement aggressive measures early ...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Another possible explanation is that in China many people use different SIM cards for work/private life and many people lost their job and are trying to cancel anything that is not essential. IMHO, if the Chinese government really wanted to make those death statistics look better they wouldn't make ...
