Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

I am about to get the Spitfire with XLW wings and excited to learn foilboarding with it. Are there any specific tutorials or tips available to make learning on it easier? Or, Can the existing online how-to's work? For example, would the info in this part of this tutorial still apply to the Spitfire?...

Re: Aerodynamics vs Hydrodynamics . Behind the Design with Ken Winner

I had a G10 slalom fin for windsurfing. It was a prototype fin that I picked up in the Gorge. After a sub sub 40 knot session it came out of the water with a bunch of tiny pits and craters along both sides of the trailing edge. First thought was could this be due to the bubbles imploding near the su...

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

For many locations, like my home location for example, kiting will blow it away hands down every time because kiting gets the wind that is up high all the time. Kiting rules windsports!! 👍🤙

This thing is a waste of money for any beginner in a location like mine. Just go kiting. 😁

Re: Sliding spreader bar dimensions

The bar is usually bent so it will not get so high forces. If you have a tight rope, the connection will not be as stable in the middle of the rope. If you have a bit of slack it moves in opinion more controlled from side to side and is also stable in the middle. Yes, that is true. But in practice ...

Re: Sliding spreader bar dimensions

I use a 12" spreader bar for maximum range of motion. For my preferance, I like the 'A' distance to never exceed the distance that a hook would provide. This gives me good smoothness in motion. I find if too little distance and things moved too easily and too much cause more wear from more friction....

Only if you want access to the Premium services are by subscription. I believe that using the base app will remain free. Hope they dont pack in advertisements on the free app too though.

Re: Board leashes are cool for wave kite?

It looks like they are using longer leashes too. For years, I used a 12 foot big wave leash (distance is your friend and thicker too, for no slingshot effect). There are things you could do to further reduce the slingshot because you can feel where and what the board is doing behind you. I get hit i...

Board leashes are cool for wave kite?

What's the story on board leashes in the GKA? Does the GKA have a rule requiring them? For special situations maybe? Everyone is using them in this wipeout clip.
