Re: Kite Board Hydro Foils available JAN 2018

So great to see such well thought out design, material choice and builds! Armstrong looks this! Even if not in the market have a look at their progress! Seems strange that some larger companies (L F, Naish, Cab,) with which one would think have R+D funds can not come up with gear as nice as the "sma...

Re: Who is an ambidextrous foiler?

Re: What you think to learn balance?

Go to your local hardware store buy some PVC pipe and a suitable scrap of wood. Self stick grip tabe from ebay at next to nothing for board and pipe. Experiment with different diameters, bigger being more sensitive and much less boring. Or, for REAL balance training, also VERY cheap! https://www.you...

Along with Stef from Ketos at least in the KBHF freeride,style world that I know of.

Re: How do you dismount?

Whatever you choose to do just remember WELL KBHF rule number 1, DO NOT RUN AGROUND! Impact damage to our rigs is cumulative you may not see it but EVERY shock is simply NOT good! Think about the lever forces when you fly, now using the same logic what happens when you hit something solid? Made even...

Re: Countersteering

How do you initiate the counter steer? Do you counter counter steer? How do you initiate that? By counter counter counter steering? Must say a little, no VERY tired of bike, and plane comparisons simply because our KBHFs have NO gyroscopic effect, OR use independent control surfaces. I am not sure e...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

you must pitch, roll and yaw seamlessly and in unison to make an effective foil turn. Enough said and well proved to myself doing forward facing stance flying. :thumb: As for counter steering, There is no roll moment caused by gyroscopic precession when flying our KBHFs! https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
