Re: Hydrofoil to BIG?

better yet, no straps.
your feet find where they need to be, everything is easier and crashing hurts less.

Re: Car keys and salt water

Forgot to add i have a friend who literally used to wrap his key in foil so he could leave it in or near the car... While we’re at it, how about integrated screen for nav, a/c, radio, engine diagnostics, kitchen sink. Shouid not exist. Best nav is an ipad with a velcro strip on the back. Relaibly wo...

Re: Car keys and salt water

Problem is the newer ones from some brands that will not allow doors to lock if the electronic key is inside an unoccupied car, and other stupid “smart” features...

Re: Sweat shop kite manufacturing

Dunno bout those videos but better to sew kites for $20/day than tee shirts for $20/month.

Re: Sweat shop kite manufacturing

Few years back there was an article or video about one of the major asian kite sewing lofts. Said they paid the seamstresses well, better than other factories and certainly better than the garment industry. Supposedly a good living wage. Propaganda or not?
I don’t know.

Re: Broken Strut

The foils i have bought were sold with a part called a “mât.” I would have bought them if they called it a “strut,” but they don’t. Nothing has broken yet. Since it concerns major part failure, I hope some DIYers and maybe manufacturers are reading this topic. Here is an idea for you: route a groove...

Re: statement from Lou

Seeing Lou Wainman kite in the gorge 19 years ago was an eye opener, amazing. Made me decide to get into the sport. Whether its trolling, personal issues or sour grapes, hard to say with him. Some past rants had me comvinced he was bipolar (or good at pretending to be). He even was into foiling, or ...

Re: Mast length windsurf vs surf vs kite

I got a 71cm mast with kf box head, and a plate adapter that adds about 3cm. Bit of adjustment in flying height first session, compared to old 90 cm one, but does work for me in chop. Not like a 90cm+, but it works. Shallower draft, lighter weigbt and responsive feel is nice. If I needed to go short...

Re: I made a tool for turning Garmin/Strava GPX tracks in to polars diagrams

Hi, yes it was a slow session in the carribean, light east wind and slightly bumpy waves, first time on a new surf wing, lots of starts and stops (crashes). Great fun though. Today the display is not working quite right for me through firefox, the output is offset in the image frame, origin displace...
