Re: Eye Protection Goggles

Kurtis is king with California kiters. I don't personally use them, but I know many who do and swear they're the best. https://kurtiseyewear.com/collections/surf-goggles I have some Kurtis glasses/google/wraparound things. I can't really recommend them. They don't really do anything useful that any...

Re: Switch Lineup

It's a fairly minor thing, but I really like that Switch supply their kites with a minimalist draw string bag. I did a short road trip recently and it was easy to put 4 kites in the car in the same space that 2-3 kites would take in normal backpacks. When setting up I can simply stuff the bag into m...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

... Why do you find it easier on a smaller board :roll: ... You shouldn't take things so literally. It was an observation not an instruction. I got better at foiling foot switches on a smaller board because I was almost forced to. It was harder to do a slow touch down because if I was too slow, or ...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

I went from not being able to do flying foot switches, to doing them all the time. Essentially I am doing them almost exactly the same as on a surfboard. I place my back foot at the balance point in front of the mast. Move my front foot back, then move the new front foot forward into the strap. With...

Re: Short lines on big kites

I think using different length lines to change the wind range of a kite is a bit of a waste of time. Just get the right size kites and develop the skills to use them and go nuts. On the other hand, using different length lines and bars to tune the feel and handling of a kite is an excellent thing to...

Re: anti-slip versus pad on a foilboard

I surf on a SUP with no pad, wax or grip deck, just booties. The grip is fine for surfing. I change stance and walk around quite a lot on the board. I can easily paddle out through white water. I hate wax. Horrible ugly messy stuff. Wax mat looks like a good alternative. My foil boards have deck pad...

Re: How to untangle lines

I don't like these kinds of videos. The titles suggest that they're going to show something useful. The tips and instructions they give are never useful. This video shows nothing about untangling lines. It does show how to deal with line overs, but even then the method requires an assistant. If it d...

Re: Remora Suction Foil Mount

I would assume that the mount would not care what board or foil was attached as long as the surface was suitable for suction. I don't want to see stunt videos showing chin ups and stuff. It's too easy to edit them to show the mount in a good light. It would be better to show several weeks or months ...

Re: Peter Lynn introduce the Aero V2

That interview is for the Aero. The Aero V2 looks very different. It's also dated a year ago. All the new stuff in the Aero V2 would require a major lift in manufacturing processes. There's a bunch of factories already doing that. I'm just curious about it. I'm interested in seeing the aspect ratio....
