Re: Hydrofoil set under 1k?

Middle of the road new Twin Tip - $500 Spleene Hydrofoil setup - $1000 Would you pay 2x the money to have 10x the sessions? Seems like a total no-brainer for all the #NeverFoil folks. Foil is great for that floating feeling and upwind in super light wind in deep water HOWEVER 10x the sessions does ...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

I tried both. The SST has that weird slingshot feel. WTF is the kite power kind of feeling. OH here it iiBOOOOMmmj AAAARRRR~~~~ The REO is super smooth gradual power. It doesn't feel your flying anything it is so light and nimble in the air. In 30+knots I feel can concentrate on my board my waves. N...

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

Best beginner surf board? Not a beginner surf board. Just get a slightly WIDER pro shape and save that money for a one board quiver : FIREWIRE EVO (or anything similar?) I ride a 4'10 at 65kg. Plenty of float. Works in all conditions. These TOMO boards the smaller sizes feel big so you can ride a 5'...

Re: Strapless kitesurfing: where to place your feet on the surfboard

Wherever it feels comfortable? Open up front foot to get a good feel on were you should be.
Wider stance when jumping or hitting the lip. Narrower stance when cruising/upwind.

HBsurfkite Legacy 3D Hook

Any thoughts or impressions on the new HBsurfkite legacy harness (3D hook system)? Rope sliders still seem just a bit better for frontside riding and no hitting the board with the hook. Though this is a nice option if you also want to unhook surfstyle. Looks comfy. http://www.hb-surfkite.com/legacy-...

Re: Tomo Evo, light wind, FCS2 choices?

Riding the 4'10 x17.5 x 2 EVO for a year (65kg). You must ride these board as small as you can. Due to the speeds of kitesurfing I personally never ride a surfkite board more than 2/2.25 inchs thick at 65kg_70kg. Like it as a quad, I think it works better for that smaller board size. This board is m...

Re: According to Google Trends, kiteboarding is declining in popularity

The good news is that more people are calling it kitesurfing rather than kiteboarding :wink: If u riding waves, u surfing. If not, u boarding. Wakeboarding on waves? Dont think so ;) So...not surfing hence Windboarding? Windsurfing, Kitesurfing just sounds cooler. Declining in popularity = GREAT! M...
