Re: How to fix my broken front wing

Factory race wing. I ride straight onshore winds and really light so sometimes it's really hard to get some upwind ground since I'm fighting the kite to keep flying. By light I mean under 10 knots most of the time.

How to fix my broken front wing

I broke the front wing of my hydrofoil the other day foiling, it was because I hit the sand bottom several times before.The crack is right by the bolts are. Do you think sanding it down to where the crack begins and then filling it with carbon layers?
Thanks and good winds :)

Re: How to foil steadily??

When you're up on the foil, you control how high you are foiling by pulling the bar in or pushing the bar out. This works a charm. I too am learning on a race wing so for sure it is a little trickier but this method worked SO well. That was one of my "aha!" moments as well. Definitely helped when I...

Re: How to foil steadily??

P F, I could not see the wing see the F wing profile from those photos, even zoomed, can you? If I could it would be easy to see if it is correct. Of course the spitfire planform has it`s place in history, but does Lift do this now? R H I also thought it was wrong and tried mounting it the other wa...

How to foil steadily??

I am an avid kiter and have a very good backround riding the race board, thought I could jump to a high AR foil and do fine right a way.. I got my lift board with race wings and find it a bit twitchy, the foil looks awesome and the wings as well but I can't foil steadily yet, either I start foiling ...

Re: Cancun?

Talk to Foca at Ikarus Kiteboarding he will set you up. They have a school and rooms at the spot in Isla Blanca is great. What's the wind reliability like? Pretty constant, around 15-20 knots daily at this time of the year. When the cold fronts come down you get above 20s. Really recommend Progreso...
