Re: how short can a mast for freeride/freerace be?!

It depends on how flat the water you're riding in and your skill level. I use a Moses 41cm mast in a very shallow spot on occasion but it's not my primary or favorite mast. It's only because I'm too lazy to slog out 100 yards to get barely waist deep. The room for error on a short mast is very small...

The Peak has about 20-30% more grunt as a same size foil kite. But singelskin don't accelerate like a double skin.
Armin,
How much faster would you say the Peak4 11m is compared to the Peak3 12m?

Thanks!!!

Re: Black marks on my hand off Cabrinha 2017 control bar back lines

Had the exact same thing happen on brand new lines from a few 2015 Best bars. It's some sort of coating and it washes/wears off after a few sessions.

Re: GoPro Fusion 360 on kite lines?

Here is a video of the Go Pro Fusion in my U-Go Line-mount using Final Cut and keyframes on the Roll Axis to Level the Horizon. Worked great. Super happy I will not need to buy another Quark from Noir Matter. Click on the Video to start playing it. https://www.facebook.com/kitechino/videos/20461110...

Re: Why there are no 135 by 50 TT boards?

My Shinn Speedball W18 is 132x47 with some rocker. I don't think it's a good beginner board. It's upwind isn't that great but that could be due to the rocker. It's very playful and slippery, even with large fins. Back when I started out, longer, flatter and wider was easier for me as it just went up...

Re: GoPro Fusion 360 on kite lines?

Hi, I am currently developping a 3D Printed support for the Gopro Fusion in the line. You can see the attached pictures. I prefered to have the camera facing the kitesurfer. To prevent tangling the mounting is very compact, no trap for the lines. The design is based on the one I used for the Skytel...

norcom : Here is a video of someone using a gopro fusion with linemount: https://youtu.be/hCT5Fa0cMkk?t=192 (he also posted videos with the gopro fusion mounted on the kite) 360-cameras are known to capture less details in the stitching zone, so your idea of having the rider centered between the 2 ...

Re: Vote for Dimitri KOTA video

Typical American voting system. It's about as secure as the ones that keep needing a recount. :roll:

I can't mega loop but I could win this contest with a single line script. :lol: Or if I weren't so lazy, add a few more lines so the votes actually look legit on the systems backend as well. :D

Re: Fone convertible drag?

Do you mean water starts? Or touchdowns? It was a comment I heard from a shop, that the round rails on the convertible boards are more difficult to take off from water to foil. I'm a bit surprised, the shops I have spoken with so far basically say they don't like the convertible boards, that they a...

Re: GoPro Fusion 360 on kite lines?

Thanks for the Rylo video, looks cool! Not worried about the editing, I know how to do all that. My primary worry with the Fusion is the view mounting. I'd like to mount the Fusion flat between the lines, so I could loop and not worry about tangling. But that would put the cameras perspective of the...
