Re: Kite size recommendations for first foil kite?

tkaraszewski- You might want to consider getting a used race foil kite and going for it. I did and don't regret it. If you are a good general kiter you don't really need an introductory foil kite IMHO. I bought an 11m and 15m F-One Diablo V1 as my first foil kites. They are very user friendly and ea...

Re: Dwarfcraft 3’6” vs Groove Skate

I've seen a number of dwarfcraft boards with durability issues that needed to be repaired or replaced. Cracked tracks, leaky footstrap inserts that take on water and delam. Typical for chineese made pop outs. Surprised this has not been mentioned in this thread yet...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Thanks for the info Bill. Looks like a great looking kite. I've read that you no longer work on Switch kite designs. Is this true? Would you be willing to explain why the separation? A big part of my decision to pull the trigger on some H3's was that you designed the Helium. Did you design the H3? R...

Pocket/Skate boards with tuttle boxes?

Looking to get a smaller board for my freeride foil that has a tuttle box in it. Doesn't seem like there are many around. Anyone know of any manufacturers or am I going to need to go custom? Thanks!

Carbon race bar with BRM connection?

Was wondering if anyone has used the BRM connection system with a carbon race bar? Or maybe there are other similar connection systems that people are using instead of the wichard shackle.

Re: Hydrofoil Pro Tour La Ventana

Yes, the top Flysurfer guys are riding the prototype kite. Maxime is on the Sonic Race. F2020- My apologies. Yes it looks like Ricardo is riding an Ozone proto. And the F-One guys are on the Diablo V4. I'll try to ask about the new Flysurfer and the design upgrades from the Sonic Race. Hope we get s...

Re: Hydrofoil Pro Tour La Ventana

It’s a Sonic Race prototype. Flysurfer has a large design team at the event and came a week early to test kites. Pretty impressive to see them at work. The new kite looks very nice. Ozone has no pit crew at this event and no new protos on the water.

Re: Levitaz Vs. Ghost Whisperer

Hi Jeff. Are you using foil race kites or intend to? I’d be doing you a disservice not to recommend a Delta Hydrofoil race foil. Saw a used one for sale on ikitesurf. George makes a very fast, stable foil that works well in light wind. And as durable as a carbon foil can be. There is a Delta thread ...
