Re: How long is your drive to the Kiting Spot, how long is your Session, how exhausted are you after the session

10 minutes for SE to NO.
10 minutes for O to NE
40 minutes for East but it's pretty rare.

And normally 3, 4 hour trips to the Caribbean a year but not so much lately...

Re: Pump kite with portable air compressor

I had an Island inflatable pump back in the days when I was always on 17m it had a 2 stages system a turbine pump for the low pressure and a piston pump for the high pressures. It did work and it was freaking heavy so I would attach it to the kite and let it pump the kite while I was getting dressed...

Re: Recommended 1 strut for big wing hydrofoiling?

I have owned several different single struts kite I prefer the Boxer and the Ultra the Boxer feels more like a regular kite the Ultra is a bit lighter and it's great in super light wind. The Solo was a huge dispointment it was super heavy and didn't drift well. The Mono has a small wind range and yo...

Re: Light wind kite

I was a bit heavier than you and I rode a 17m for years in that kind of wind it's very doable with a big board and a good technique you have to learn to take advantages every gusts to go upwind and then try not to loose ground. Stay way from heavy 17m kites with 5 struts something like the Ocean Rod...

Re: Compressor

I had an Island pump for a few years similar to the Bravo. I was riding 17m all the time back then. The lead acid batteries kept dying I had to replace them all the time. Now that I foil most of the time pumping a 9m single strut takes 30 seconds with a WFMG pump so no benefits to carry around these...

Re: Adapt Moses 683/679 For kite fuse

I made a custom fuselage from a square aluminium bar to fit a Moses 633 to a Mast I already had and a Stabiliser that I made so yes it I'm sure it can be done.
