Re: Which tipe of board to choose

I have both these wings (actually 683S, the older version of the 679). Out of the two wings, and at your level, my opinion is that you'd benefit greatly from riding the 633 for a while. It will give you good progression and confidence with gybing, foot switching etc. The 683S though is actually my p...

Re: Lightwind gybing

I almost always downloop going into a gybe, after switching feet, or not, even when quite powered up as I love the acceleration carving around. I generally try and ride on the underpowered side though. In really light winds, as mentioned above by others, it's super important to keep the kite flying...

Re: anyone used this stick on foilmount? in real life.

NYKiter had a bad experience but wasn’t using the Foilmount system, only the adhesive I believe.. I seriously considered initially to save a few bucks. It’s a great idea, but I definitely prefer a specifically designed foilboard with tracks. Lots of 2nd hand options around these days. Peace of mind ...

Re: Slingshot UFO

I tried watching the interview of Tony Logosz on page 4 of this thread. Not sure I even finished it, started drifting away, but I think he said something at some point about the UFO having great upwind for a low aspect kite... something like that. Any opinions on upwind performance compared to the P...

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

Often with my 360s I feel a bump from the foil when just getting around heading downwind again, almost like I brush against something underwater. My assumption is that this is the foil stalling out momentarily... Does this happen to anyone else? My 360s don't feel very circular at all (I lost my gps...

Hadn't seen the straight jump with mid-air footswitch before. Nice. Very cool :thumb:

Re: straps for foil if not getting air

I thought straps would help me progress with 360s and tacks, maybe a perceived hack (debatable), but I hated them so much I went back to strapless.

Can't see myself trying straps again until I want to fly.
