riding toeside with a hook is fine for me. if it's a problem for you, i guess you have a problem you know about.
you wouldn't happen to have any pics would you?Regis-de-giens wrote: ↑Thu Aug 13, 2020 12:04 amA good solution (for me at least) is to cut the hook and just replace by a flexible fixed point , made of a SS ring attached by a very short dynema rope like BRM system. You remove the leverage almost like a slider but you keep a precise control like a hook. And you gain power stroke (useful for short arms).
the dynabar helped quite a bit,,, still was not fully successful but perhaps next time,,, i am struggling building speed going toeside (board in water, btw),,, and the kite,,, (2013 10m north rebel) is super hard to sine one handed.
Go into the gybe faster so you don't need to rely on the kite, bear off downwind a little on the exit to maintain speed, then dig in and load up to head upwind.papasmerf wrote: ↑Thu Aug 13, 2020 2:27 amthe dynabar helped quite a bit,,, still was not fully successful but perhaps next time,,, i am struggling building speed going toeside (board in water, btw),,, and the kite,,, (2013 10m north rebel) is super hard to sine one handed.
as i do the gibe,, i touch down as i pass the halfway point of the turn,, so then i have to ride toeside with the board in the water,, which abviously takes more power than the foil,,,if i could just stay on foil during the turn,,,things could go well or if i could just sine the kite to build speed up to get back on the foil,,, it would be good but so far,, not quite there. hmmmm. my board has about zero flotation,,, double agent
I've been wearing the Dakine Nitrious for years now and find them very comfortable.
