Re: Slingshot UFO

Greg got ahead of all with strutless and could have milked the design more. He is reportedly a very nice dude in person but his email communication somehow is soaked with attitude which might be just business precaution. The lawsuits in US are not fun and are not cheap to deal with. I have watched ...

So glad to hear SS has a viable and formidable option to what that arrogant jerk at Board Riding Maui (Clouds) offers. Go Slingshot!
What makes you say that about him? Dont know much about him but he seems pretty laid back surfer type guy from what i have seen of him on his videos.

Re: which is the best upwind bodydrag technique to recover the board?

I do a doggy paddle swim can pretty much go straight upwind (one hand on the bar, paddling with my other hand and kicking with my legs). In my experience it is the fastest way to get back to your board.

Re: Foilholio wants to destroy kiteforum - any help to stop him appreciated

Lawsuit in the US...gonna be saving kiteforum financial situation! So he spammed the forum with some fake accounts? I have always taken the view that the only people who win in court are lawyers and would only go down the path of litigation if there was absolutely no other option. I would not assum...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

but these total tanks of boards that were not too fun to ride. :thumb: I wonder how many guys bought cheap Funny foil and quit because of lack of performance and weight. Or on the other hand bought one to test the sport and oh so quickly out grew it and found it hard to resell because word got out....

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

With all of the discounting and NOS inventory, I predict Slingshot will be the next to get out of kiteboarding. Slingshot have produced some of the best kites in the industry although their market share does seem to be in decline. Liquid Force probably decided to cut the kitesurfing side of their b...

For me it is kiting.
Insane kiting 😃

Just please, no one else try this...so many things can go wrong.
Totally just because you are landing on water doesn’t make it safe. If he jumped in the water from that height without a kite he could die or be seriously injured

Re: Full face helmet for foiling?

Correct. All this gear is making us feel invincible. Far from it. One might wear a helmet with cage and never ever tell us about a nightmare of catching bar end in a cage. Or a line. Impossible? If someone wants to look like an ice hockey player while kite surfing, I can only imagine him driving a ...
