Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

Old info and not related in the slightest to the windsurfing in the Olympics.. It is not related to the current Olympic windsurf Class. Those are the current 'no rules' used in 2018 for PWA Slalom. Nothing is decided yet for the 2024 Olympics regarding the windsurfing equipment. The main new propos...

Re: WindFoil - KiteFoil

Re: Water Sheer and Hydrofoils

Thanks. That second one is fascinating At Page 319, they seem to be concluding that the Rib Vortices are strongest in plunging waves and propagate from the leading edge downward, but they are weaker (maybe not visible?) in spilling waves, but last longer and go to a greater depth. https://eprints.l...
