Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

^ Ha Ha :-) Great to hear it worked..... eventually! I assume the sections were printed vertically? Joined with dowels or just glued butt joints? Any idea what the weight came out to be? Glued butt joint, but have three alignment holes with toothpicks. Printed vertically. Weight is about 900grams, ...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4???

Vote with your money. Buy some old V2 Unions and keep riding them. Or just get a Bandit, they are great.

Re: DIY Trackmount into surfboard

Is this type of track system workable, is it a fiddle to get the foil on and off..... getting all those 4 bolts to line up each time not a big deal? Very easy. I use alan keys to tighten my bolts. First I push the nuts in the tracks to the ends of the tracks. One at the front and one at the rear in...

Re: Hydrofoil DIY from Argentina

nice work , any more feedback about how it handles? what would you do differently if you make another one? Not OP but I have built and ridden my own foil. If you can't foil (like me) then keep the front wing big and delta shaped. I foiled the top and flat bottom.... just to keep it simple. I vac ba...

This makes it really hard to learn. So the second board is also a twin tip, 150cm ish. I put 17cm of nose rocker in it ...

Re: dynamic differences with seat and waist harness

I prefer seat. I don't unhook.

I hate how with a waist harness the pull of the kite goes through your lower back into your legs then to the board. Switching to a seat harness gave my back a rest.

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

Aww I missed it, why the takedown? Wanted to see the Triotone Dice... :( Oh. Facebook search. Duh. I really hope they don't take the MS-Office font library typefaces to production... Agreed! What an ugly font. But I suspect that is the production model. They don’t have too much time to change it no...
