Re: WindFoil - KiteFoil

Great advice, thanks Peter! Fortunately my sail already has some packing tape repairs from the previous owner's harness hook. I'm fully expecting to do the same, its' bad enough with regular windsurfing.

Thanks Peter, I noticed in your pics you did a really good job making sure your foil is very far forwards. While mine isn't quite that far forwards it's far enough to give it a shot, and failing that I can likely get a new fuselage machined that will let me get it even further forwards.

Re: WindFoil - KiteFoil

3Inlets, Peter, Thanks for the follow-ups. I agree with all the downsides and inefficiencies of windfoiling vs. kiting. I'm interested in pursuing it as my beach gets effectively closed down in the summer due to swimmers, and the remaining kiteable beach only works at low tides due to a wind shadow....

Re: WindFoil - KiteFoil

Peter, 3Inlets, have either of you or anyone else had any more experience using kitfoils for windfoils? If so how has it been? Thanks.

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

Just look at their forum on here or their own dedicated forum site that will not be named. Yeah I'd say it was a fad.

Re: Would I learn faster by shortening the kite lines?

There is nothing to gain from shortening your lines. If anything it will just make the kite faster and harder for a beginner to control. Shorter lines mean less power too, typically beginners are very inefficient and the power from full length lines is useful. The only time I shorten my lines is if ...

Re: Do I bother to get a 60cm mast?

Update: So I took everyone's advice and got a short mast. So far I love it. It got me two for two sessions in waist deep shallows I would otherwise have been on a twintip. Breaching hasn't been an issue and the board is way easier to body drag with. Bottoming out on chop hasn't been a big deal eithe...
