Re: Wave surfing swell with kite hydrofoil

I got no clue about what to look for. My searches on Google hasn't been successful in finding info. I'm just guessing I need a bigger wing, as the glide number on mine seems low. I got no idea tho, I've just been trying it twice behind my boat, and am just getting a feel for riding on the foil as fo...

Re: Wave surfing swell with kite hydrofoil

And yeah, I'm thinking of towing in with a boat, and surf it without a kite or anything else towing me.

Wave surfing swell with kite hydrofoil

I've been seeing a lot of kai lenny videos lately, and really want to try surfing ocean swell with a hydrofoil. I have a noble freestyle hydrofoil. I think the wing has a lower "ar" (if that is the right word for foils) than the foils kai lenny is using. Has anyone tried surfing ocean swell with a k...

Old Takoon bar

I was showing a friend how to set up his kite, it is an ca 2007 takoon. The bar had this strange 10 cm plastic tubing with a ball on each end, that the chicken loop rope went through. And this tube went through the bar. Does anyone know this system? Seems strange that the bar only has 10 cm of depow...

Re: Almost kitemare

I usually just grab the cl with one hand, and let go with the other. If the chicken dick isn't stiff enough, you can try to lube it up, and run your hand up and down it for a while.

Re: How to Self Land Your Kite

If you tether the chicken loop to a fixed object, that is not self-landing or self-launching. And it won't help you when you need to come to shore to fix something at an unexpected spot during your downwinder. And it won't help you when you travel to a big beach without any posts where you want to ...
