Re: Kiteboard Size 136 or 138

It really depends on the board. I ride an Axis Limited with that board 134 would be plenty big for you but with a board with lots of rocker and a narrow shape 138 would not be too much! So, maybe to be better to grab a 136 . What's your opinion ? What board are you looking at wakestyle boards typic...

Re: twintip hydrofoil - tandem and canard configs

I remember looking into those back then. I read some reviews and the consensus was that they are slow and not very fun those who tried them said it was worth the effort of learning to ride a proper directional foil. I would love to try one, but not enough to order one.

Re: Gaastra force 10.0 setup

Woah that is old. The ring on the front line is where you put the leash if you want the kite to flag safely on a single front line. But that's a very old design and it's inconvenient you can't spin the bar and you ride with the leash in your face. The ring on the chicken loop is a suicide leash so y...

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

Yes I would say stick wit the smaller kite stab. The fuselage is very long so you don't need a big stab. My Groovestake must be a 2019 I got it and the beginning of 2019. Even with my stab cut down to 35cm I still need to move the rear screws to 2 most forward rear hole in order to move the mast a b...

Re: First impression of Gong M Pro

They sold me the M Pro with the surf stab it's too big the foil is too lifty too much down pressure from that stab on my setup. I had a 45cm stab from the kite foil but that was too big too so I had to cut it down and reshape the tips. It works sort of good now. I wish they had sent my the kite stab...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

You raise a lot of interesting points longwiththecloud. Just from a pure market point of view I think most of us knew that it's unsustainable to have 100 kite brands most of them barely making money and prices that keep increasing every year with no apparent limit. Many people learn to kite when the...

Re: Heavy rider equipment

I was your weight for a while. You need powerful freerides kites. If you are just starting out you probably don't want to learn to foil just yet so I would go 17m, 12m and 9m. You can skip the 9m if it never goes above 22 knots you can use the 12m in 22 knots at your weight. If you want to go for Ca...
