Re: New foil kite in a hail storm

I’m sorry that is a crazy way to try and self land! If you have a tether / stake what is wrong with flying to the edge of the window right next to the ground, pulling back lines / brake line to get it right on the ground, keeping back lines under tension and then just ambling over and laying it out...

Re: Moses 2018

@TomW: Does you pocket board have standard mount position? (~28cm from tail) How much rocker does your board have? I will make a pocket board at some point and wondering if I need rails or fixed mount will be OK. Now have 550/330 but planning to get other wings later. My pocket board has rear foil ...

Re: Moses 2018

Went out second time today on 633 and pocket board. Wind was from good power to really light, almost to can't fly Hyperlink UL 9m kite. Was riding with a guy on a LF Impulse and 9m Storm Voyager. Water state choppy but only 0,5 m. We were both doing same speed. One run I was just behind him as he ro...

Re: New foil kite in a hail storm

Rename thread " Foil Ventures". Yesterday I went out at my local on my trusty Hyperlink 9m UL. I was quite overpowered, but wind was coming and going and flucky. Even lei TT guys had kites falling. Then mine fell 10m from beach while coming in, tacoed, inverted while I saved my foil from the rocks I...

Re: short lines

Looping to get going is one thing, but if you are talking about looping through a jibe, you can go with much shorter lines. I've seen a 21m race kite looped on 15m lines not problem through a foiling jibe. When you're riding under the kite as it loops, the kite can pretty much stay in the same spot...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performance

All kites overfly. Foil kites overfly more because of inertia and efficient profile which also gives their good qualities. There is no way I would believe the hyperlink doesn't overfly. 32+ sessions, has not overflown or shown any tendency. Standing on beach, still in water or flying under it light...

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performance

I have a Hyperlink UL 9m. 30+ sessions. It has never over flown, nor shows any tendency to.

Re: Rider Reviews: 2019 Ghost Whisperer 91, Moses 633, Lift 170, H-glide H4

Takes a lot of reading and research. Part of the problem is its a new sport, these foils are new development and just getting out to a wide audience. Yesterday I picked up my Moses 633. The reseller said he's sold 10 of them in Sweden. That surprised me, no one on our local fb groups has posted a re...

Re: Moses 2018

Simply put, the 633 flys too easy and is too loose in yaw stability for ideal learning. IMO after riding it once on pocket board = take with grain of salt. That said, I imagine a person who's never tried anything else and uses a bigger board to stabilise the yaw might find it easy. When I learned on...
