Re: Hydrofoil board for beginner, cheaper VS expensive

Given that hydrofoiling is a long term strategic decision, I would recommend buying the equipment under the same strategy. During the initial learning looong phases the board does have a relative significant importance, so that's why a special purpose, floaty and forgiving one is preferred. Regardin...

Re: Hydrofoil in 8/12 knots at 80Kg(176lbs) rider what kite size better?

Abel Plummet Dylan Neptun thank you for your advice! finally what I understand is that is preferable a smaller kite for better relaunch between 9/10 knots to 12 knots and that under this wind speed the kite have to be bigger but lighter as perhaps a LEI mono strut or without strut or again a foil k...

Re: Kalpitiya Sri Lanka Kitesurfing Report 2017

Here is the Kappalady lagoon. https://www.google.co.il/maps/@8.1359713,79.7112966,3585m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en During late September I experienced more lulls than gusts, but it was good enough for a 10m. You can reach the lagoon only with a four wheel drive. Also be careful with the hotels around there...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

.... I wonder if the 12 Ultra would actually have more low end for foiling than a 15. That's the same question I asked myself and calculated the weight to surface ratio of both, finding that there is a negligible advantage for the 15. If the aerodynamics is equal for both sizes, then both will fall...

Re: Hydrofoil in 8/12 knots at 80Kg(176lbs) rider what kite size better?

Have a look at the Hydrofoil forum,...lots of info there. My personal suggestion as an HF beginner, is go for the lightest LEI you can find. The light wind LEI technology is almost in pair with the foil kites. :o Kite size: 12m,... no need for more if your gonna have 8-12 knots. @ >12 knots consider...

Re: DIY onestrut kite

If you're aiming at very light winds, keep in mind that every gram counts! I observed that light wind kites use a huge wide and heavy inflating valve and single pump connector. So following your simplicity concept, here are my 2c : Save the weight. - use two old little valves, one for the leading ed...

Re: Why not more canards ?

Just wondering, it seems the Zeeko canards works awesome and everyone is excited about these :D Curious now, why no more brands offer canards ? Too early, or some downsides too ? Sorry, cant help wondering if one or another :-? 8) PF Just by chance, yesterday, a friend who is a distributor of Solid...
