Re: beginner hydrofoiler questions

What are optimal wind speeds for my 1st attempts at hydrofoil? Am I better off with larger(slower) kite or smaller(faster) kite. I am 165 lbs. Twin tipper for 10+ yrs and would call myself intermediate. Directional surf board limited experience. 1 out of 10 jibes and the 1 I make ain`t pretty. Than...

Re: slingshot H2 or H4 for learning jibing and tacking

I ride all the SS foils and wings a lot and know them very well. Both the H2 (new Gamma 2019 foil) and H4 (Space Skate) are higher lift foils and very stable. I'd actually give the overall nod to the H2 (Gamma) for stability. It's wider. ... (I think the H1 is a myth), but the H2, H3, H4 and H5 and...

Re: Affordable Kite - Highest Jump - Longest Hangtime

NJkiter, if what you want is big jumps, long hang time, plus a bargain price, it's hard to beat the 2017 Cabrinha Apollos now on sale in the USA. Read the reviews before you buy (e.g., don't expect a wave or wakestyle kite out of the Apollo). This is a good time to buy last year's models in many br...

Re: Cabrinha Moto - new Kite 2019

It's a respect thing for the companies and their dealers. In my first post I mentioned August 14th is the date of the info to be released and of course I mentioned someone will spill the beans. It always happens and then it gets deleted. Cabrinha is looking out for the dealers so we can all sell th...

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Poacher....we are there Oct 13th - 27th and I agree that it should still be good to go, but you never know. Look us up if you are coming either of those weeks. You know where we are.

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Poacher....I'm with you 100%. Of course there are tons out houses up and down the line in the tri-cities and Avon, but there's a special thing about the location in Mirlo Beach. You can hit NE and NNE winds better there than anywhere south (except the Frisco area) for the most part for riders who do...

Re: CABRINHA Moto - new Kite 2019

Hi, A few of us know the info, but the official release is August 14th. We were able to see the product first hand at the Cabrinha meeting in the Bahamas. Someone will probably spill the beans early and then it will have to be deleted, but the wait is worth it. Bob www.kiteridersllc.com bob@kiteride...

Re: Looking for kite school in Chicago area for a friend

Hi,

I'm in the Madison, Wi. region which is about 2 hours away. We're pretty backed up for lessons, but have your friend contact me and we'll see what we can do.
