Re: what is this thing? line separator?

sealer-clamp to aliexpress/ebay search. Just heard today you could use these to the same job. Might require slight four cuts to lines.

Re: Real world reviews of the Switch Nitro7?

Re: Injury in the hand, first sesion foiling! Just be aware!

I have cuts on my wetsuit, and I bet they came from sharp foil edges. Better to cut neoprene than skin.. a good side of having cold water :D What foil you have? Some have very sharp trailing edges. At least aluminium mast edges can be honed. I don't care about extreme fast foil (with sharp edges), b...

Re: Time for new winter boots. Atan again?

I like using neoprene socks under thick (6 mm) boots.
Socks also prevent boots to stink - socks are easier to wash. And it's easier to put on tight boots because socks slide better than your bare foot.

Gong foil howling

I have M size classic surf wing and it's a great product and CHEAP :)
The only thing what I would fix if possible, is howling. It doesn't howl all the time but it would be better if it is somehow tunable to silent. I heard from others their gongs howl too, but any tips how to silence it?

Re: Tuning the Flysurfer Boost v1 9m? Flutter issue.

Did you find out what was wrong with your boost? I have also 9m boost v1 and it flutters in higher winds.. Did I just reach its high end or is there something wrong with the kite.

Re: foil attached to twintip

I would like to just report it works great :)
Twintip is a little bit flexible, but I didn't notice any problems with it in use.

Had to build a wooden adapter plate between the foil and board, because board bottom isn't flat enough.
