Re: Shorten Line Length from 24m to 22m

Unfortunately you have to make a choice if you want to do the traditional extensions on the kite side: If you shorten them on the bar side, then you do not change the geometry going to 22m, but adding the extensions to get back to 24m will. Conversely, you could shorten on the kite side which change...

Re: Untangling a bridal

As the owner of a Chrono and a Hyperlink, I can say that for whatever reason the Hyperlink loves to tangle whereas the Chrono seems impervious to it. Boggles my mind. I got it tangled on the beach one day, had a buddy step in and try to help but he made the rookie mistake of detaching the flying lin...

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Image Smoothing As A Gimbal Replacement

How was the GoPro mounted for these clips? Looks like a chest mount by the angle.

Re: 2018 quiver advice?

Wonder why nobody mention Dash? That 3 strut very fast and light versatile kite, loops amazingly well and on top it's close to Torch for unhooking as additional benefit... L. Much to my own chagrin, I share your sentiment. The Dash looks like a lovely kite, a great mix of the Pivot and the Torch. I...

Re: Harness Position

...Yes.

It is the right way to do it.

Harness is not a bra.

Re: 2018 quiver advice?

If you want a combination foil and looping kite, you probably need to take a long, hard look at three strut kites like the Pivot, Evo, or RPM/SST. Foiling loves the light weight kites, and all of the aforementioned 3 stutterers featured in the 2018 King of the Air competition (SST instead of RPM, bu...

Re: WOO consistency

I do not doubt your ability to judge distance, but it is a hard rule that one cannot judge one’s own jump height. This has been true before and after Woo/Xsenr/PIQ. A good test is to stand on top of a 12 foot ladder. While it feels like you are in orbit, it is only 12 feet, which is a very small jum...

Re: 30.4m Jump on WOO?

This guy posted a 24m jump from Taiba Lagoon on a day I was there to feel the wind conditions. Did not see him jump, but I am HIGHLY doubting that that was legitimate. Video of any of his recent sessions would be nice to see. If I were him, once I started jumping 20m regularly in Brazil I would have...

Re: New foil kite in a hail storm

Epic story, 5 out of 5, would read again.

Glad to hear the kite made it!
