Re: World’s Fastest Riders Take the Start Line for Kite Race Bonanza

Nico Parlier and Daniela Moroz are both competing in Mauritius this week along with many other top riders so unfortunately we don't really have the world's fastest competing against each other.
But on a positive note it is great to see more of these events being held around the world.

Re: The foil kite noob and his Ozone Chrono UL 15m

I have also found that the Chrono v2 handles high wind very well and has great wind range. I have often come in after a windy session and my friends ask me how I managed being so overpowered.. but I really never noticed.. the Chrono still behaves well in high wind conditions. Pedro, you might like s...

Re: Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil?

I sold my last twin tip board at least two years ago and don't miss it. I still have a wave board but I don't often get to real breaking waves so it doesn't get much use.
I am 95% hydrofoiling.

Re: The foil kite noob and his Ozone Chrono UL 15m

I think downlooping through the jibes is your answer. I definitely downloop for all jibes (touchdown or foiling) unless I'm way overpowered. ... Agreed. I always downloop my 13m Chrono in light winds when I jibe. I use 20m lines and have no problems as long as I start with my kite high. Actually I ...

Re: Tacking advice for a newb

As you pointed out though, there's two types of tacks: facing the front of the board or facing the back of the board. If you want to tack on foil, facing the front of the board is far easier. If you just want to tack on the surface I think facing the back of the board tack is slightly easier. I'd g...

Re: Tricks for foil kite relaunch with floaty board in the way

Yes just sit on the board. Ride it like a horse with your feet dangling. Relaunch becomes easy then.

Re: toeside 180 tack . . . anyone got advice

For me it helped to approach it as just a weak backroll.. where you don't put in enough energy (jump) to leave the water or to rotate all the way around.

Re: how often do you hit fish?

Our local spot is at the mouth of the Squamish river which is an active salmon spawning river. This time of year the salmon seem to be at the end of their life cycle and many are very sluggish and slow. I have hit several in a single session. They are big enough, 30 cm, that it usually sends me flyi...

Re: Do U use an impact vest for hydrofoiling?

I always recommend an impact vest for beginner hydrofoilers. Crashes are a lot harder when they come from one meter up. After a while you learn how to fall and the crashes don't seem to hurt as much. But as you progress you will find yourself going a lot faster sometimes.. Personally I have been wea...
