Re: Vantage kites, is the revolution announced?

its not at all about kite designs any more, the design has peaked imo 3 years ago. Woo however is making groundbreaking progress in its jump calculations. Algorythmic calculations the likes we have not seen before in kiteboarding have already set the woo top 10 charts alight with 8%, i repeat 8% hig...

Re: Question Profile Go Foils ?

copying a board/ foil design for personal use is absolutely fine. i personally think open source foil design will develop like in the world of surfboards. Sure it disrupts business, but it's 2018 so adapt or die. So many of the big companies you know are cut and paste anyway .. coincidence that a to...

Re: Question Profile Go Foils ?

there are web sites with cad files for surfboard shapes and reviews of them, there should be be something like that for hydrofoils, if not i guess it will happen.

I wonder if people are patenting hydrofoil bull$hit?!
