Re: Best foil to use it Strapless?

I wouldn't recommend the H2 due to its weight. It's a very heavy setup, I struggled with it strapped after coming from lighter aluminum masted setups.

Re: For an absolute newbie

Good call on the Nugget. Once you have it down solid start thinking about the foil. Learning to kitefoil from scratch seems like learning to juggle and unicycle at the same time.

Re: Core and German engineering meme

Just as a general observation it seems more and more kite manufacturers have made it increasingly difficult for users to replace consumable parts on their own. With my old bars a decade ago I'd just go to the marine store and get new line to replace the chicken line, cut it to length, fid it if nece...

Go Slingshot, go! (and please produce a prettier fuselage finally)
No, please no, I'll take forward compatibility of my existing Slingshot fuselage and foils over a "Prettier" design. This is why I went with Slingshot. I choose functionality and compatibility over aesthetics and image.

Re: Feedback on 2015 Liquid Force Rocket Fish Foil (not board)

I liked mine, it got me hooked. Start off with it as far back in the tracks as possible as I recall a ton of front foot pressure in the default mounting spot on the2015 Rocket Foil board I learned on.

You paid through Paypal right? Try disputing it. You were sold something you different than what you were promised.

Re: Slingshot H4 Wing

I use the H2 wing now. It comes up on foil at around 6 mph. I’ve had it up to 17 mph on my gps. Not sure how much more I could push it either. This is great to know, thanks for mentioning it. On Slingshot's website there it is conspicuous in it's absence for kitefoiling. I have one for windfoiling ...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

I used the Oceanus when I first started kiting. I found it super helpful when learning because it allowed me to focus on the kite. However I feel it also made me lazy around acquiring solid body dragging skills. I certainly had many violent wipeouts and never once even had a close call with the boa...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

http://kiteboardleash.com/ Pretty sure I recall this website is registered to Ocean Rodeo despite finding nothing on a whois lookup. They wouldn't have any reason to discourage leashes would they? /s ;-) Oceanus has been making those reel leashes since at least the mid-2000s, they were hot garbage t...

Re: Once upon a time, before foiling as we know it...

I too wonder how this took so long to catch on, especially given that windfoiling is in my experience way easier than kitefoiling.
