So overall bar pressure high, or just good? Planning to demo one v soon.
Medium? I haven't kited in several months, and have had maybe 4 hours the past two days but my baby soft hands don't have blisters.

Re: What to look when buying a used foil kite?

Re. the bridle -- look at the kite in the air. There shouldn't be tucks or pulls anywhere in the canopy that indicate line shrinkage, especially at the tips. Other than that . . . I don't know. Caveat emptor. Knock the price down until you're happy taking the risk.

Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

Just took mine out today. First time on a 10m SB, although I have a 12.

I thought the BP was ok. Not overly heavy but not particularly light either. Had to work it a lot to get back to shore, but no complaints. The 12 is worse.

Re: How to jump on Sonic? Or any foil?

If I don't have to self-land, then 15m in 20 plus is a serious hoot.

Re: Sand / water / aqua socks to wear inside boots

I need my eyes checked. I thought, this guys taking the kitesurfing addiction just a little too far, because I read the title as "Sand/water/aqua socks to wear in bed"...

Re: Gasping for breath after crash?! Breathing how to?

I used to hold my breath when I jumped (why?!) and the better I got, the bigger and longer the jumps, the more out of breath I was when I landed. Crashing was fun too...

Otherwise I can't help :D

Re: How to jump on Sonic? Or any foil?

Very easy to choke a foil from the bar, gets easier when the kites get smaller. 12m is almost unrideable for me on a TT :D With the board, hold your line and flick the tail, don't dig the edge in like an unhooked pop. As for the kite, let it fly. You don't want to sheet in hard and stall it (especia...

Re: First Foil

I got the Axis aluminum foil early last year. Got a handful of sessions on it before I had an ankle op. Far better than the LF or DA, and for me I like it more than the HG. The HG was very roll stable and tracked a straight line, but I prefer the lighter feel of the Axis. Easier riding (no bad habit...

Can't have been that good if you don't remember :D

Speedball I've wanted to try too, but I've only ever seen one Shinn board here and it was the foil board slim board thingy.

Hmm...
