Re: 2 Fatalities in Tarifa

2) with offshore wind and the need for doing a rescue, don't screw around rolling the lines on the bar. When you are facing huge sea, there's zero chance to make it tidy like they taught you in your first kite lessons, where they had you roll your bar up on a perfectly calm day. Grab the flag out l...

Re: Mystic Elevate Boardbag

I also use it. For padding I wrap my board in a thin microfiber towel or wetsuit/lycra. You can also use belts to reduce its length (eg. on my recent flight the length max. was 120cm). I’ve never had to remove to wheels but I like the options to max out the availabile weight.

Re: Foil board up to 120cm - what’s out there?

Thank you all for the replies, keep them coming! I wouldn’t find out about many of these boards otherwise! My shortlist is: • Moses T22 - 109cm • Maderita/Mucho Macho 37” - 94cm • Pro Macho 33” - 84cm (for macho later, it would be convenient to pack in the bag where I fit my split TT) My quest start...

Re: Foil board up to 120cm - what’s out there?

Light and stiff makes a huge difference. Consider Kanaha Shapes. 3 different sizes. I was looking for this! I found the website once somehow (there is this amazing little girl foiling in Hawaii in these, isn’t it?) and then I couldn’t (same with her videos - never seem to be able to find when I wan...

Foil board up to 120cm - what’s out there?

I’m looking for a foil board up to 120cm in length - what’s good out there for further progression? I’m an intermediate foil rider, currently progressing on Shinn Jackson 120 and while I like the board I’m wondering what else is good out there. I’m considering the smallest Slingshot Dwarfcraft but I...

Re: Ultra V2 or Nexus?

Thanks PF., but I’m looking to expand my foiling quiver to ride in more wind, not less.

Re: Ultra V2 or Nexus?

Thanks TomW! I did my share of time with RAM kites on TT and I’m not looking to get them. Got Sonic2 13m to squeeze more from the light wind days but below 8kt it’s hard work, especially when learning transitions, to keep them in air. I got 12m Ultra for it to be my low wind LEI. I must say Sonic2 b...

Ultra V2 or Nexus?

The core of my quiver are XRs 11+9+7. I love big air and I mostly freeride. I started foiling this year so I also got Sonic2 13m and later on an Airush Ultra v2 12m which I like a lot but I haven’t ridden TT or jumped with it. I feel that the XRs are not that great to foil with, so I’m looking to ge...
