Re: chrono v3 11m vs hyperlink 2 11m questions, time on both?

As I am 'only' 70 kgs on Onda 633 I think the 9m HL v2 will be big enough as I have improved I have expanded the range.I had the 9m HL v1 in standard and really liked it, recently sold it with intention to upgrade to the v2. As an interim arrangement (covid and switching to different winter venue-wa...

Re: Buying a kite + bar setup from a direct to consumer manufacturer in Europe

Generally the' 'hit' you will take on a new kite will be much more than 25%. Think most will not pay 1000£/euros for something 'second hand' ,even if it is like new,people would wait for later but new model. Modern kites last for ages if looked after ,most people change because they WANT to to be on...

Re: Buying a kite + bar setup from a direct to consumer manufacturer in Europe

Tried the Ventum ,explore and Tough bar V2,on TT ,strapless surfboard and hydrofoil .It was a 7m and I was super impressed with it .Also build quality and value for money are great.On caveat,for foiling the 7m was fine as most 3 strut kites would work.,however I would not use a bigger size(for foili...

Re: position strapless board with just legs - no hands.

Looking at the video above you can see,as people have suggested "It really helps to have kite pulling ever so slightly towards rear foot to keep all aligned" . Although you cannot actually see the kite it is clear from the bar angle and more so from the line movement that Rob is doing that. Looking ...

Re: position strapless board with just legs - no hands.

Big fan of the Progression kitefoiling videos.Even though I watch them over and over ,every time I learn something new ,there is so much detail. As we are locked down, in the area I live in Spain, great opportunity to watch the vids again,do some more kitSOFAing and follow the blog. Although learnin...

Re: position strapless board with just legs - no hands.

Thanks everyone for all the advice.The odd thing I find with foiling is every next level always seems impossible then once you can do it you wonder why you ever thought that? It seems very 'binary' one minute you can't do it ( and feel that you never will )and the next minute you can and it seems ea...

Re: position strapless board with just legs - no hands.

I have same board and foil. I can water start hands free almost every time. Get the board on its side if not already there. Position feet on board (I’m strapless) and as kite moves you will have downward pressure increase through feet to keep them where placed. It really helps to have kite pulling ...
