Re: Hydrofoil comparison table

Nice table! It would be great to get more hydrofoils to the same test and table! :) I have heard from many kiters that slingshot hoverglide is a stable foil and the table says the same. What makes it stable, doesn't look any different to me? What makes the stability in heel and toe direction? Maybe...

Re: Hydrofoil comparison table

Couple good ones here. The tables in the first are quite helpful, providing lift and max speeds. Not specifically aimed at kiting, more about how to select between surf/sup/wake alternative uses. http://www.mackiteboarding.com/Foilboarding-Styles-Foil-Fridays-Ep-01/ http://www.mackiteboarding.com/h...

Re: Hydrofoil comparison table

What question would you be trying to answer by reviewing such a table? If that table is more than 6 months old, it's useless, all the gear is changing on a 3-9 month timeline at this point and almost every manufacturer in the space is making something better than they did this time last year. Mike'...

Hydrofoil comparison table

I remember seeing a table which compared a few hydrofoils, with a rating on different variables. I can't find the topic, it is probably from a year or two ago. Anyone remember that topic and has more luck finding it than me? Some of the points on which the hydrofoils were rated were speed, stability...

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

Thanks guys, having a lanyard round my neck doesn't sound that safe (getting washed in a wave and have it tangle around lines etc.) but I'll figure out how to attach it safely and stash it. Thanks! If your lines are passing that close to your neck having a lanyard tangle in the lines should be the ...

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

I find it ergonomic enough that your mouth doesn't get tired too quickly. The good ones have a lanyard that you pass around your neck so that you don't lose it if you have to spit it out. The problem is that mine is just a little too long; if I leave it hanging around my neck the GoPro hits the hook...

Re: Weed now legal in South Africa

Legalization is fine with me. But I prefer not have stoned kiters on the water when I'm kiting, or stoned drivers on the road when I'm driving. :o "Hold my joint and watch this..." In theory you'll only be allow the smoke at home, not in public places. Still won't stop people from smoking right bef...

Re: GoPro Head strap

Buy a mouth mount (what do you call it?). It is basically the bottom part of a snorkel (you have a comfortable thing to bite on and you can breath through your mouth) with a GoPro attachment point, and a necklace so you don't lose it. If you just bite on the orange floater you can't breath through y...
