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

Re: Bed sun protection routine for kiters?

Sunblock everywhere. I quit wearing hats, so now I gotta apply it to my rapidly developing bald spot too. zinc & titanium only the chemical shit (oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, octinoxate, etceter-erate) is just as bad for your skin as the sun. Sunglasses if the water ...

Re: My 2018 RideEngine Harness hurts to wear

Yep you guys are right, I should have 10” bar instead 8’. I am going to order 10’ Ideally you want the biggest spreader bar possible, so that it doesn't move up as much. If you can order the 12 aswell it would be worth a comparison. If the 12 sits very snug with little extra room on the sides it mi...

Re: quest for a foil kite in 10m

And why not get a Soul 10? High aspect ratio can work well with the twintips (see a flysurder Sonic 2 for example), the question you shouldbe asking is if the bridles that come with the Diablo 4 and the Areo V2 can whistand the higher tension generated by the load of a twintip. If I were you, and m...

Re: quest for a foil kite in 10m

Yes I know that the Nova is totally different and thats why I'm so torn, since I love all the things a high aspect ratio kite can give you when with a foil, but at the same time I love freeriding on TT with a Soul or Halo... Therefore my main questions are: are high aspect ratio kites any good for ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Can I ask you what issues? I know there s a new 9m, a friend bought it and i am planning on trying it this week...

Re: speed tips on high aspect foil

Hi Max What kind of speeds are you looking for? Whit what you describe the only advise I can give you is to try and lower the front foot pressure, either by putting back the foil on your board (if you have a rail system), or putting the front foot straps a bit more forward. Also, angling the back of...
