Re: Do all kites invert equally?

All kites invert equally. But some are more equal than others!

Re: foil skills improve my TTip riding, wow!

My tt'ing has gotten worse. Why? I'm spending way less time on that board. Had a powered jumping session a week or so ago. My redirect timing was all out for the really big jumps.......

But I'm certainly a lot smoother carving on the wave face.

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

Rode my 10m yesterday. Man that's one slow assed kite compared to my 4m. Still a fun session, but slow is not your friend in the waves. Not at all

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

Jees.. some bickering going on above. Just ignore them. Anyway. Fired up the 4m yesterday 20-30 knots on the hydrofoil. It was a fun session. Some furious kite flying went down! Challenging in the washing machine slop. But fun nonetheless. The drexler videos are always good to showcase fast kite fly...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

And don't forget the classic trick everyone wants to do: a Backroll. Do It with a 17 in 15 knots and with a 5 in 45 knots. Only with that you will know how good a slow kite is for progression... Depends what your progression is. If its to waddle around in 15 knots then yes!. If its to haul arse in ...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

It's like difference between driving a bus and a sports car. If you want to dangle beneath your slow moving bus like Toby while you do aerial gymnastics then yes, bus turning is preferred. If you are a kite flyer and want to interact dynamically between kite and terrain then the faster the kite flys...

Re: milling out aluminum fuselage

The Moses Mast has a tapered tenon ( read: mortice and tenon) . So youll have to mill a tapered mortice exactly to that form. Youll need CAD data and CNC mill to do it or a custom made mill bit and some very accurate manual milling skills. Its probably to do a ghetto version by milling the mortice ...

Re: Yet another diy hydrofoil. The plummet hammerhead

Now you've done the progression plummet, and gone to double footstraps, what's your feeling on whether it would have been worth starting with two, or as you did with just the open front one? One foot hook to start is good. You do so much crashing to begin being it straps is a bad idea. Once the cra...
