Re: Foil - wave riding

To be clear. I want a kite that I can park and forget about and just rip the wave. I do not want to be actively flying it. -- Gunnar That sounds like the BWS promo line 5 years ago "surf the wave, not the kite". From what I saw, they were the first to aggressively market the "surf kite", with maxim...

Re: Foil - wave riding

Try a BRM Cloud ...... they are so light, they just drift backwards like a feather. I have. They don't work for me. Same problem as with other kites, but with the added minus of them inverting the Sail when I stall them to keep the kite in the middle of the wind on the wave. To be clear. I want a k...

Re: Foil - wave riding

Those videos are looking really unimpressive. Where is the action and the fun? No cut backs, no splashes, no slashing, no tight turn angles... just riding gently down the line. When I saw the first videos of wave kiting back then, it was the exact opposite! I was stoked and addicted immediately, be...

Re: Moses 2019

https://vimeo.com/300036833 https://vimeo.com/300070668 -- Gunnar Gunnar, Have Moses reached out to you to demo/ride the 873? I think your feedback on 633 sold them hundreds of those. Can’t wait for feedback on 873 Yes. Jimmy promised me one almost 6 months ago when they started development of the ...

Re: Foil - wave riding

Gunnar 2013: Hi Everyone, Here is my 2 cents on wave riding with foils. "Normal" Waveriding (normal size breaking waves) is not really doable on a foil. For me it's all about using the right tools for that the right job, and a Foilboard is not the right tool for having fun in those conditions. Gunn...

Re: How good do you have to be to foil?

If your kite control is good, then you should be able to go for it. I would however recommend doing it with an instructor who knows what he is doing and has the right equipment (short mast, no volume board etc) to allow someone with your lack of directional experience to learn safely and successful...

Re: What is Your Max Speed @ Hydrofoil ?

Not to rain on anyone's parade but if you are using a basic GPS then they are highly subject to aberrations in speed readings. I see stupid numbers out of my Garmin Fenix every once in a while....where I know I didn't go that fast but I could certainly claim it. You really need a high frequency rea...

Re: What is Your Max Speed @ Hydrofoil ?

great, thanks for link. Did you care for the defatting of the wings? are the wings matte? or made into gloss? I apologize for so many questions, but probably we will not see a better result here. Did you have any problems with cavitation / ventilation at this speed? I cleaned the foil with soapy wa...
