Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

those conditions are sucky for learning an already tricky thing. I try to get to swell where there is a flat spread between for a bit of calm. It may be that you need to get away for a week to a more calm place to advance. Only other thing is ensuring you have enough mast. 110 makes a big differenc...

Re: flying foot switch - advice needed

Any tips on learning to foil jybe in lumpy choppy sea? A typical day for me is 1.5 - 2m swell 15-25 knots. I get a swell chop combo that means the sea is in a constant flux. I try to aim for a small piece of less lumpy water. But it usually isn't enough flat to pull of a foiling footswitch without ...

Re: best foil kite for gusty conditions

I kite some stupid Conditions both on want and land. Not snow however. My preference in super Gusty is lei first, then closed cell depower foil then open cell foil. Lei's have the widest range and biggest gust absorbing capability. Plus you can completely slack line them, run directly at them on pur...

Re: More wings, the hard way?

I would love to have the time to build my own wings and it is interesting to learn how others fab up test designs. In terms of build approach, I would purchase metal molds CNC'ed from solidwoks, and use carbon fiber layup/compression techniques. Molds are pretty inexpensive but take a few weeks. As...

Re: 12m hyperlink or 11m chrono ultralight??

Both kites are good.
Chrono is slightly better upwind and has a higher top speed.

Hyperlink is slightly more stable with slightly faster turning.

PS I've flown Chrono and hyperlink but not ultralight Chrono

Re: at 57°F (14°C) water temperature you would choose 5/4 or 4/3 wetsuit?

Either will do. As others have said. Air temp plays a big part as does wind speed. 20 deg air temp and 15 knots is a shit tonne better than 8 deg c air temp and 40 knots of wind!.....
