Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

I just had to jump in after reading the previous post. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, sure, but that is not an ugly duckling. I think the color scheme is elegant, bordering on sophisticated and a breath of of fresh air. I love it.

Short Lines with surfboard

Does anybody have any experience with riding short lines and a surfboard? I am thinking of making my second bar 10m. I am hoping beach access will be much easier since we often have little beaches here at high tide. Thinking it will open up more launch options, in less crowded spaces.

Re: Wake surfing boards

I have the 5’3” Fish from Liquid force. I believe they also marketed it as a wakesurf board. I also have a an old liquid force two tip, and very much prefer the Fish. I ride if with straps and don’t do foot switches. I just do toeside every other tack.

Re: Best country to be a refugee in claim welfare and kitesurf all day forever

Huh, who died and left you in charge of deciding who’s deserving? I dont want to hijack the thread. Just saying what it sounds like. Refugees are people who are fleeing their home country because of persecution. OP is casualty belittling the term (it could very well be accidental or just poor word ...

Re: Best country to be a refugee in claim welfare and kitesurf all day forever

How about contributing instead milking the system. Sounds like you want to take a refugee spot away from a much more deserving person.

Re: Plywood surf foil wing

I was in Lowes today, and had an idea. I say a rolls of wood veneer for a pretty inexpensive price. The large roll (24" x 99") is only 25 Canadian Pesos. I trust my CAD skills, though I don't trust my hand shaping skills. I was thinking of designing the wing in CAD, with a tried and tested airfoil s...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Very Cool! Reminds me of the "kitewing" videos I used to drool over about 13 or so years ago... How did it perform? Would something like that be an easier first go, since (I imagine) there are much fewer panels? The idea behind the practice kite is that once complete, I could get some use out of it ...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Hello, First post on kiteforum :) I have read through this thread and I am so impressed with the software, the discussion, and the completed kites. I have been postponing building a kite for about ten years. I had a go about 10-12 years ago with an early version of surfplan, but the results weren't ...
