Re: Need help with speed4 dlx please....

Thanks for all the tips. I'll start by checking the flyin lines then mixer test. My friend and I both thought that the z bridles were too tight just by looking at the shape of the filled canopy. The trailing edge stays flattened out. If I do need to stretch those white z lines that connect to the ki...

Re: Need help with speed4 dlx please....

So should I start by shortening b or lengthening z?

And where can I find a layout for the bridles on the sp4?

Re: Need help with speed4 dlx please....

Thanks for the reply. I'll try that.

Is it normal to have to keep the bar sheeted in at least halfway for it to fly right?

Meaning after about 75% sheeted out it loses power and steering ?

Seems odd.

Need help with speed4 dlx please....

Just bought a basically brand new speed4 dlx 8m for use primarily with the hydrofoil. I own the lotus 10m and love it but really didn't enjoy the dlx today and think it may need some bridle tweaking. Wing tips would fold easily while riding, trailing edge looks crimped and kind of flat (not full of ...

Re: How to get up foiling in low wind

I'll just smile and keep kiting in, Pullstrings. You keep rocking in that chair. Folks, the reason why 15" mast works well in low wind is not because it gets on plane any faster than a longer mast. It's simply because you can start in knee-deep water. This gives you solid ground and resistance when...

Re: Kite foiling - Going from heel side to toeside help?

here's my tip....turn upwind slightly, tension lines while flying the up in the window to about 10 o'clock--(boardspeed increases) at the same release edge into turn and downloop kite. its easy to over shoot the kite with the foil so getting on a slight upwind angle before the transition helps with ...
