Re: Designed foil behaviour?

Re: Designed foil behaviour?

It will be very very inefective. To the point no one making it.

Re: Fastest way how to set up your kite

So if you are interested this is my way which work for me reliably ca. 20 years for all kites: Two important notes 1. Never ever roll kite on bar or put bar in kite while packing - th...

Re: Moses W873 2100cm wing discussion

633 isnt very slow wing - there are plenty option of slower wing without being so big /think takuma/ . That size is needed because it makes pumping more effective. Imo not necessary for kite HF and very unpractical.
