Re: One Board - Kite and Surf Foiling

Not surf foiling but i do use the F-One 5.8 Mitu convertible as a kite (in waves) and kitefoil board.
It has a foil box where you can attach the foil.
Not sure though as how this would work in surf foiling, i guess a bigger board would be needed

Re: Bandit 11 2018 review yet anywhere?

looks like you have steering lines too long, and the kite doesn't respond when you depower the bar. That's normal, just trim it so it responds by shortening the steering lines

Re: Cabrinha FX 2018 vs F-One Bandit 2018.. Need help ;)

Re: 7 days of Levante in Tarifa - fake news?

when it says 30, expect 40-50 or more, you will have to move to other spots where it is lighter probably

Re: Question for Switchblade Owners – 14M vs 12M

Same, sell the 14m, that kite is only for big people. You need a 12m and then a 15m contra for light stuff, 15 contra has really a much better low end than the 14m switchblade, is faster and relaunches easier in light winds

Re: Dying after board start

Extend your arms when you lift off the water. This prevents from leaning back.
Extend your front foot in the direction the kite is sinking, this will direct the board downwind.
Weight must be on the back foot but with the front leg extended

cheers

I can hold a lot of power with my TT, but this is different thing. Just be enough powered, like 10-12m in 10 knots is more than enough for ...
