Re: Bridle complexity

Bridles don't tangle ;) On my beaches we have various types of dried seaweed and beach vegetation that loves to get stuck in the bridels while setting up, and then they get tangled. Have to go back and pull it out and straighten everything out. Shorter, less complicated bridels catch less of this d...

Re: Lightwind strategy - advice needed

Awesome! I think I'll buy the board sometime in April, when it's not that cold anymore but still plenty of good wind so I can learn to foil powered up like you guys recommend. Cold is fine, motivation to get it right :D I learned in winter so summer wouldn't be wasted trying to learn. "Powered up" ...

I click the button and nothing happens...but it was a bit of mashing of the refresh button to actually get the page to show. Crappy webpage.

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

King of the trust funders. Kiteboarding has become an embarra$ment, $3000 kites and showing off your made up jump heights through your $300 gadgets. Absolutely rediculous. Red Bull uses its gross drink to corrupt young minds . Drink tap water. All that fluoride though -- aren't you worried? :lol: W...

Re: Mast length....?

28 inch (71cm) in this video. https://vimeo.com/300073561 I am inspired by Bigtone's comments to try a shorter mast... I use a 75cm mast with 82cm wide wings ... works fine for me. Keep meaning to try my 90 again, but last time it felt slow and cumbersome. I have zero issues with "pumping" it up an...

The most obvious thing I can think of is using a pitching wave as a giant berm. Think fully cranked transitions with the foil inside the lip and the mast projecting at 90 degrees to the wave face. That would be pretty cool to see.
Sounds like Gunnar's last video...

Maybe you should just learn to relax your grip - it"s like the difference between pink and purple.

Re: Large compact wings for surfing on a hydrofoil

I recently broke a board after foiling into the sandbar on a low tide day. I’m glad it wasn’t the foil. The waves were forming up nicely tempting me to be careless. That was how I snapped the LF Fish :lol: I have to disagree with this. I demo'ed a Slingshot Infinity 76 surf foil and found it to be ...

Re: Large compact wings for surfimg on a hydrofoil

It seems the first popular wings in this category were around 1100-1200 cm2. Now I see more people kiting on 1400-1500 cm wings. Mine is 1126 (LF Impulse). I wonder if a bigger wing will be even better for small waves. You get more glide, need less power and speed. So yeah :) I have only one mast, ...
