Re: How do you find people to kite with?

Our local kiters have several WhatsApp groups like for sharing spot wind reports and conditions, general chat (who is kiting where, lost and found, random discussions), foil riders group.

Re: Building a tiki

On the web there are lots of images and videos of alaias; here you can see how a classic bottom looks like: https://tomwegenersurfboards.com/sites/default/files/2012/02/Rastas-tail-601x400.jpg I have built a couple (both wooden and composite), you can actually get pretty creative with the bottom sha...

Re: Ozone Zephyr V5/6 17m or Ozone Hypelink v2 11/13m ?

Re: Plummet Mutant V3

That looks like a nice board but it isn’t exactly a mutant by my standard. These pics show the board in its "twintip" configuration. There is a lot of room to shift the footstraps back and fins can be changed as needed (the board has the standard FCS inserts). Ah ok, sorry! I take my words back the...

Re: Plummet Mutant V3

Inspired by Plummet's Mutant discussion, just finished building my own wave mutant (160x50 cm).

Re: Gin Marabou - Single-surface Kite

It is not meant to be a performance kite but it is lot of fun and versatile. It is relatively fast-turning in comparison with other foil kites, light, easy launch, good wind range.
