Cloud D1 good for boosting on foil?

Has anyone tried boosting on the cloud D0 or D1 single strut? How does it compare to other single struts such as the Mono or Ultra? I ride the Naish Trip when foiling now and I switched from the Cloud .5 because it was a better jumper but I do like the feeling of Cloud kites. If boosting performance...

Darkslide from blind?

I’ve been thinking about how one might initiate a dark slide from blind. Would this be possible (it seems one would almost certainly need to rotate front side while doing it)? Anyone tried?

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

I love air style, foiling, strapless and wakestyle. The appeal of which is that to learn certain tricks and to land them consistently one must crash hundreds of times. The challenge of learning a difficult handle pass trick and then mastering it gives great reward. Learning a strapless back roll mig...

Like Toby says you’ve got to lift your legs to get the board on and off not reach down. Practice in a chair until you’ve got it nailed then go for it

Nonsuch Bay resort/Green Island Antigua

I’m looking into booking a week in Antigua this January. I have a non-liter wife and two kids under 4. Would the Nonsuch Bay resort be a good option where I can kite a couple hours in the morning before spending the rest of the day with family? I’m looking to ideally be able to kite from the hotel w...

Re: Tips for board offs in thick booties?

I love cold water storm kiting and love fall through spring kiting in the cold, rainy big winds. I think being a dedicated kiter and learning new tricks in these conditions helps develop resolve.
