Not on purpose, but I’ve crashed the kite by accident while on foil and managed to relaunch and keep riding before stalling out. I’ve seen videos of people doing this on purpose.
Next time your out do it on purpose. Get the kite real low, then tap the water with the wing tip!

Re: Can't kite at my beach anymore because of so much garbage in the water

Not such a problem here. There's 2 hydrofoilers and we usually don't kite at the same time.

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

Relax. Learn forward and backward more slowly. Relax. Don't fight the foil. Relax. Did I say relax? relax! Do what Yoda says. don't try just do! Add a bit of speed and relax. Lean back a tad, add more speed, when you start rising out of the water lean a little forward. relax. if your getting too hig...

Re: Kite choices for foiling in high winds ?

What about the stability of a small single strut vs a similar sized three strut. Would the single strut do a lot more flapping and be less stable? An Ozone Reo vs a Cloud (no strut), as complete opposites, for example in stormy conditions. Its not really about stability. More about the top end capa...

The wingtip lower than the board game.

Was amusing myself today tacking upwind. How low can I get the kite? how high can I ride the foil? Can I get the wingtip lower than the board height. The answer is yes! Then how long and I ride with wingtip lower than the board? Then can I tap the water with the kite and not stall out?.... An amusin...

I have used my little 3.5m Cloud in 35 knots on a zeeko carver, and the same little kite in 50 knots on a twin tip.

It was like having an angry little wasp!

Re: Kite choices for foiling in high winds ?

I'm using a 4m uno. Ozone trainer kite. It works a treat for foiling. It's one strut and several hundred cheaper that the same sized reo. I can use it from 20 knots. But it's nicest 25-35 knots. I've flown in on the foil +40 knots. I was too powered for to ride waves down the line in 40 knots but I ...
