Re: Human powered pumping hydrofoil boat trying to break 20kts

http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20170921-how-fast-can-a-watercraft-powered-by-humans-go Not kite related, but it will be interesting to see in action I see they have achieved about 12 knots human powered with it. This is what 12 knots looks like when human powered on a foil. http://www.youtube.com/...

Wow Ronnie!!

Great points about kite flying skills being a huge help.

Re: Is it possible to kite a surf-foil?

Re: Safest Control Bar
