Re: 2017 IKA Formula Worlds: World’s Leading KiteFoil Racers to Gather for Exhilarating Showdown in Oman

Yes now that I read it again you are correct. The limit of four kites for each competitor is normal in these events. And they can use their own choice of foil.

Anyway it looks like it is going to be a great event.

Re: 2017 IKA Formula Worlds: World’s Leading KiteFoil Racers to Gather for Exhilarating Showdown in Oman

Wow. If they do get all those top riders to the event that will be a very complete collection of the worlds top level talent.

I can easily guess at the four kites allowed, but does anyone know which hydrofoil is required to be used by all competitors?

Re: Shinn P Foil Mast - Compatibility with other brands

I recall that there was a nice large area inside the reef near the Wyndham Resort.
Great for foiling.

Re: Shinn P Foil Mast - Compatibility with other brands

CG, where to foil on the caymans? Hi Tom I had several days at Barkers (northwest area). It is a popular kiteboarding spot.

Re: riding toeside

If you have 3 straps you may want to leave your back foot out of the back strap as you are learning to ride toeside. It is easier (but not as fast).

Re: Shinn P Foil Mast - Compatibility with other brands

I cannot answer your question positively but I would be very surprised if you found any compatability with any other brand. Each brand has its own shapes and hole patterns. You should consider cutting down the mast you have. Anyone good at metalwork should be able to cut an aluminum mast and tap new...

Re: Power.

I originally was riding small kites, but now I ride the same size as others on twintip. .. Absolutely. As you progress in foiling you can learn to enjoy more power. This allows you to go faster, jump higher, point upwind better, point downwind farther, do tacks and jibes easier and generally rip pa...

Re: Spotz, it's over.

Spotz made some of the best foils a few years ago but lately they just weren't winning races. And now the biggest market seems to be for less expensive and easy to use foils these days.. a product that Spotz does not offer. I had the Spotz 1 and then the Spotz 2 and I look back wth fond memories of ...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

The masts for the spitfire and the white green are identical although one is mounted a couple cm farther forward on the top plate. The fuselages are completely different of course.

Re: Kite Industry Statistics

I understand that the worldwide market for kites in 2016 was estimated by the Global Kitesports Association at 150,000. The GKA is an industry association based in Germany with most of the major kite companies as members. Detailed market statistics are available to members. https://www.global-kitesp...
