Re: viron 4m in waves with hydrofoil

I felt your pain getting out back... onshore and any sort of wave power sucks balls breaking through!...

Also welcome to my world. That sort of condition is not uncommon around here. Other than we are usually more cross on which makes it a lot easier to get out! Its hard work on the foil for sure.

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

Lets hope so.

It might give too much glide tho? sending the rider out of the comp area in one or 2 jumps.
They really want to rip super high then down fast to loop landing for another jump option. That'ts what C's and Hydrid C's do.

Re: Solutions for straples riding / using surf style board

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

Yeah man. Flow is what its all about whether you realize it or not. It's we are all subconsciously seeking when we hit the water or trail or whatever it is that feeds our soul. It's what Peter calls Zen. Its a mental state akin to meditation. A mix peace and excitement all at the same time. Now diff...
