Re: Pocketboard question

Thank you for all the great input. I guess I will go for the 110cm Dwarfcraft insteae of the 100cm. I am still wondering how big the Hydrofoil sport will be in kiting? I guess it is just a small group at this point, but maybe I am wrong. I don’t know where you kite but foiling is all over the place...

Re: How to untangle a hydrofoil from a bar

I find it easier to get the board out rather than the foil. Usually it is the board that goes into the lines so pull the board out. It will happen again.

Re: Pocketboard question

I think the shorter boards are easier to ride because you can control the pitch faster. The only advantage I see to bigger boards is maybe you can get up on the board easier. But I agree that 85cm is going to require more power to get going. But if you ride where you pop up straight to foil, I would...

I went ahead and got the 5m.

How come there's no pump loop attachment on the kite for when you pump it up and it doesn't blow away?!
Small loop next to the deflate valve

Re: Travel Bag - Kites/Surfboard

I’ve been eyeing this but wish it was just a tad longer. https://oceanrodeo.com/accessories/pro-tour-bag/ Pro lite used to make a 5’ 10” dual board travel bag that I have. That was the smallest I could find length wise. Yeah, I wish the OR bag would work (since I'm affiliated with them) - I think m...

Re: Duotone Dice 2021

As far as selling bags separately I like that idea, however maffhieu just showed why it is a tough one to roll out... Fifteenish years ago kites always came with a pump. When brands started selling them separately, charging $X for a pump and selling the kite for $X less the market and this forum we...
