Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I actually think that the KIte Wing will take off - just from the financial side of things. Who can afford this kiteboarding crap... Is that why local kite scenes worldwide are looking more and more like the scenes in the 80s movie cocoon? Yes. Lol. That new duotone advert featuring the 50 year old...

Re: BRM bar

Lol. Add a trim strap?

Never had a problem grabbing the centre ropes and tugging them, even if the kite is overhead at 12pm and I'm trying to relieve some pressure to swivel my snapshackle.

Keep at it or ditch the gloves

Re: Cabrinha PU mainline depower tube

This thread has morphed from the original Q. I would say very hard for sand to get in and pretty easy to check the condition of the lines inside but make sure you attach a temporary feeder line so that when you pull the existing line through one end to inspect, you can pull it back in again the othe...

Re: possible to change Cabrinha recoil to clamceat

Oh and by the way, the trim and recoil might not be the same overall length which could then mismatch your fixed steering line lengths. Cabrinha are a PIA how they don't have an adjustable steering line dyneema rope section. If so, you'd need to either compensate with the trim all the time or max ou...

Re: possible to change Cabrinha recoil to clamceat

Probably not relevant for you cause you sound like you're a school: A bit of effort but you could eleminate the trim altogether. You'd probably need some new rope and safety line spliced to the new length. I've built a bunch of non trim bars now mostly for use on foil kites. Without the trim system ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

With 25m lines it's probably slower than a typical 15m lei. I flew it with 17m lines for most of the time I've owned it and that made it comparable to a 13m.

Turn speed isn't really much of an issue IMHO opinion when cruising around on a foil but important when doing tricks on a twin tip.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I think I gave you a quick response on the Nova thread. I've had it out 3 times now from 9 knots to nearly 30. It has a really impressive wind range. No canopy twisting when it turns (the soul does a little) so you get a slower turn but a really powerful loop in the same size and when signing the ki...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

So I reckon I've had my Souls for about a year now 12m and 8m. I've tried all sorts of boards, foil wing sizes and line lengths 15-28m. If it helps anyone here's where I have landed: Rider 83kg in summer 86 kg in winter lol 6 or 7 years kiting experience, 2 years of foiling Multiple foil boards and ...
