That looks extremely familiar
You must be talking about the earliest single skin paragliders long before FS Peak no doubt?

Re: Difference on the small foil boards..

I have a crazyfly proto. I think its just a little smaller than the "chill deck" and definitely bigger than the "f-lite" No volume is great for waterstarts especially strapless and does not hurt light wind performance during touch downs at all. In fact I think sinking the board helps tense the lines...

Re: Flying Wing Commentary

939F637D-829D-40F4-B4FA-A45D0BCFC1EE.jpeg I wonder why we don’t have more winglets, fences and dihedral on the flying wings so familiar to us already? Closed cell foil kites definitely benefit from reflex. Open cell fixed bridle, less so. What about LEI? Parallel for hydrofoil is user impulse can a...

Re: how important is pre-inflation?

More important for a high aspect kite that is likely to twist into a knot. Also it helps more for a side window launch. I usually pre inflate just enough to hold the valves open and do a straight downwind hot launch.

Re: For an absolute newbie

So this is what I would search for for 10 knots vs 107 kilos. You probably need a bigger kite as well. http://c.ikitesurf.com/classifieds/36452 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cabrinha-Race-188-69-Full-Carbon-Kiteboard-by-Alex-Aguera-with-3-Fins/173560150475?hash=item2868fdb9cb:g:VF4AAOSwISNbldGG https://w...

Re: For an absolute newbie

Why not a free race board like Airush Sector or an old non foil race board. If you are in light wind that is the way to go. I would learn to jibe the race board and then you are set up for surface jibes on the hydrofoil.

You should be able to find a used race board at a nice price.

Re: HyperLink 7m vs Soul 6m - wave performance

Very nice Hyperlink 5 session today in 2' waves. Started 18g20 knots picking up to 21g24. Plenty of power and never overpowered on 20 meter lines. The 7 would have also worked.

Re: Q-Powerlines on Flysurfer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_friction_hitch_knots I have used a Prusik to convert a FS 5th line system (FDS) to the mini fifth (FLS). It will slide a little when you activate the safety. The nice thing is you can adjust the safety line length when line length is adjusted. I would test it th...

There is a cleat and a long bitter end so it can be adjusted while hiking out. Sailboat style is a good description.
