Re: Perils of foil caught in a fishing net

i think any mini/jr sized (serrated) spear fishing knife works well for kitesurfing.. both groups gotta be vigilant and aware of the potential fatal repercussions of getting yourself wrapped around lines and nets in the ocean...and the need to be able to quickly getting yourself unwrapped. i never h...

Re: Perils of foil caught in a fishing net

I would suggest you may think dropping the kite is a good idea but you may have also drowned if you did. That is unless you had flotation like a vest, and if you didn't I would suggest that as the first solution to your problem, the second would be to carry a knife or TWO. A vest will give you time...

Re: Buying 2nd hand Peak 4: do they stretch or anything to be aware of?

So, I have one 4m in sight as a second hand, but should I worry about anything / pay attention to something particular before buying, please? Can the bridles or canopy stretch which would hinder the performance? The kite would be for foiling use. Thanks! :bye: a 2nd hand 4m? where did you see this?...

by elguapo » 04 Dec 2019 16:59 this might be a dumb questions.. but how do folks travel with the chubanga foils? just use the box it came in?

Re: Surfboard weight

I know of a few guys who can tear up waves pretty well on a skimboard, but I'm not one of them and I very much prefer a board with "some" volume in the waves. Matteo, you should look up "surfboard foil" as it is considered a very basic concept in surfboard design. As for the skimboard.....Why is th...

Re: twintip use inappropriate

correct me if i'm wrong... but a general rule of the water is that when dissimilar vessels meet...the less maneuverable guy gets right of way. (this may be more courtesy and common sense) on a kite we have access to 1000x times more/differet waves to hit if there if even a single surfer(or swimmer)....

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

I've been pushing my limits of kitesurfing foiling last couple of years. My new Armstrong Foils have allowed me to push harder in bigger waves and I finally had the break through session Jan 3rd 2018 at Hookipa and Lanes, Maui. http://malolohawaii.com/products/Armstrong-foils What I've learned.
