Here's mine own personal "state of the art on this". Other people are already doing cooler things, but this is a new sport an d I still feel fairly close to the "cutting edge" at this level:
That's a really sweet foiling wave and some nice riding :D :thumb:

Re: Hydrofoil stiffness & fuselage connections

I'm in favour of connections that bolt together flat surfaces. The Axis for example. This seems like a really good design, they're doing a lot of things right. Bolting together curved surfaces like the Moses is not bad, but creates design and/or engineering challenges. I'm also not that crazy about ...

Re: state of the art wave kite foiling

P.S. (super secret tip) Electric skateboards like Lacroix Lonestar, Bamboo Evolve GT, Onewheel and oldschool Carver skateboards allow you to work on the same wave techniques on land, essentially doubling your time learning while keeping that kite and foil stoke. It's not an coincidence that you see...

Re: High aspect wings for kite foiling

Will be very interesting to see what people are riding a year or two from now. If you've tried a Flysurfer Peak4 you may find the answer to your question... And you don't have to wait a year or two :D No it's definitely not going to answer my question because my question was about foils, not kites ...

Re: High aspect wings for kite foiling

The one way I've seen it's possible to get a tighter carving turn is to breach the wing, or way least half of it. Of course that takes a lot of skill. I'm just wondering when the first hand reviews are going to come through. I'm surprised there aren't any yet. Hopefully I'll get a chance to try one ...

High aspect wings for kite foiling

Who's tried high aspect surf foils for kite foiling?
Specifically for riding waves. Wings such as the signature foil, gofoil GL, axis 900/1000 etc.
Please share your experience and/or opinions.

Re: Unboxing: Moses Aluminium Foil Kit

Also what gives the alu mast good strength and stiffness is the structural support offered by the internal cross bracing. Whereas carbon masts, apart from the high end race ones, tend to have a foam core that offers very little structural support. I'm pretty sure that if alu foils had a similar stru...

Re: Best city in world for kitesurf vacation

My definition of a city is diverse cultural and culinary offering. safe, and reasonable costs for a visit. Easy access to kite spots with winds 12+ knots that are frequent. The reason I am asking is my family enjoys visiting these kind of places, and I wish to combine with daily kite session. Melbo...

Re: About real small pocket boards < 1 m, benefits and limits

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks a 33" (84cm) low-volume board is hard to waterstart... You are right that it is a bit more difficult. When I was riding my 97cm board, I never once occurred to me that it was a bit of a challenge to waterstart, in just about any conditions (at least in compa...

Re: If you had to re-buy all your kites tomorrow, what would you get?

3.7m Cloud 4.8m Cloud 8.0m Cloud If only one kite - 4.8m Cloud Almost exactly for me too. I'd go clouds all the way but i prefer to build a quiver around the goto kite and not skip sizes. Prefer right size for the best / most frequent conditions to total range coverage. Can also extend the range qu...
