Re: single skin variable size kite Aeros S1 Duo

:lol: :thumb: Reminds me of the windsurf sail that you can zip sections on/off. I love the idea but you just end up with multiple sail sizes that don't work very well. I'm guessing this wont be much different. The Delta3 Multisail: I had one of those sails --- bad memories. It totally sucked!!!

This looks quite cool. Is shipping to USA available?
I inquired today and was told that, unfortunately, they are not shipping to the US (the bar looks fabulous to me). Rainer, please change your mind and ship across the Atlantic!

Re: Foil covers

I've made foil covers out of ancient wetsuit sleeves or legs and shock cord -- a lot more protective than the ones that came with my Cloud9 foils, and really easy to make and use.

most visible board color?

I'm getting ready to order a pocket foilboard and would really appreciate the community's knowledge on what color is most visible in the water when you're looking for it after a crash -- in sun-close-to-the -horizon conditions, low light, lots of whitecaps, etc. (recognizing these might be different...

too light to drift downwind?

Yesterday I was foiling in about 12 knots with some downwind current and 2 foot wind chop. I have recently started using a much lighter 68cm mast and fuse (Project Cedrus http://www.bayareakiteboarding.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14778 ) with Cloud 9 S24 wings (same as Liquid Force impulse wings) ...

Re: BRM Clouds arbitrage opportunity

I think Greg does a great job of balancing R&D, stoke, customer service, and the need to make a living. If he sells kites to you, he takes that as a commitment to service those kites. If they get passed on to people in other countries or situations where he does not what to commit to his high level ...

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

I have found that the Cloud IX S24 (LF Impulse) surf wings are MUCH easier for me to handle overpowered in rough water than my previous smaller non-surf wings (Stringy and Alpine Access). If I park the kite high and depower, I can cruise along upwind or stay in good control downwind. In the same con...

Re: Strappless or Strapped for Learning to Foil ??

+1 for learning strapless. I'm a rider of (barely) average ability who took more than average time to learn to foil. Strapless may have slowed me down some, but I never felt remotely like I would hurt my knees or ankles during my thousands of crashes. And now that I'm decent at it, I feel like the a...

Re: Slingy & LF taking competitor wings

What message are Slingy and LF sending that they have to go to competitors and incorporate their wings? Are they not innovative enough to come up with their own? I think the message they are sending is that they are working to grow the sport by supporting smaller businesses and individuals with goo...
