Re: Which watch for real-time speed read out

Locosys GW60. It’s the only one with a doppler and running at 5hz. Made specially for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Case close. What does Doppler do? I've never had trouble with the ambit giving me inaccurate values (spikes). Or are there other inaccuracies i dont know about? Mostly looking at speed...

Re: Which watch for real-time speed read out

From reading the manual looks like no max speed recorded and no knots as unit. Not sure about tom tom, but the suunto ambit has 100s of user created "apps" you can upload to the watch to have it display whatever you want. I added a max speed in knots readout for example. The display has three lines...

Isn't area farther away from the center exactly what you want if you are trying to increase torsional stiffness? Area away from the center of the area increases the polar moment of inertia.

Re: The New 2018 Airush Core Foil Series Out Now

To be honest, I have a problem with reviews. Most of them essentially boil down to "I took the gadget for a spin and had some fun". I'm sorry, but this is not a test. Even clever and funny reviewers like Kitefinder.com fall into this trap. Witness their foil "review": "We tested this high AR wing a...

Re: Which watch for real-time speed read out

There are a lot. I use suunto ambit 2 because it was cheap at the time ($150).

and notice the cross beams surrounding the bolt openings located in perfect places. Just from profile comparison I would predict 3-bolt design to be twice as flexy as compared to 2 bolt one.
Because the bolts are in thinner material? Nah

Re: The New 2018 Airush Core Foil Series Out Now

That's a lot of curve on the front wing and angle on the stabilizer. Interested to hear what it's like. Seems like most other freeride foils have gone to flatter wings.

Re: What is your HF kite quiver?

I'm fully fucked on my 12 Chrono at 16 knots on my foil. 2 years ago, I'd be on my 6m dice in 16 knots of wind. Now I'm happy on the 15m sonic2 in 16 kts. Probably 3x as much projected area! The newer race kites are easier to ride with more power. Sonic2 is a lot easier to ride powered and fast tha...

Re: Foil balance question

Yeah that was the experience I had when I tried the foil fish also. I don't know if shimming helps. It is a fairly sudden breakdown of loft when you push it.
