Re: Self Landing Speed 5's

Can you send a pic or drawing as to how you attach the pulley you mentioned and a video if possible of how it lands?

Thanks

Re: Going from Short mast to full size

I have the Board on its side when I dive the kite. Is that best?? I come from riding Surfboards. So are you saying keep some edge of the board in the water to get going? Great tip!!!

I think I'm going to pick up a light Carbon foil and mast. That makes sense..

Re: Going from Short mast to full size

That won't make it rise to fast? Makes sense

Re: Going from Short mast to full size

So would it be correct to say that if I try a Light Carbon Beginner type foil that the Sticking affect Im feeling may not be as prevalent?

Re: Going from Short mast to full size

I have not been able to get the foil to lift yet on the long mast. What you said makes sense. I just need some more time to redevelop my few skills to the Long mast. The extra length and weight makes sense. It's the L Force Long mast and its heavier than a mother compared to some carbon foils I have...

Going from Short mast to full size

Been doing good on short mast. Can ride 50-100 feet on Foil. Tried the longer mast and found it difficult to ride. I can get up but it feels like the Foil mast is STUCK doesn't t want to move through the water with the Board touching water.

Help!!
