Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Every time this thread gets bumped I find myself contemplating buying a knockoff.

Re: Ankle fusion helps kitesurfer

Is this propaganda for socialized medicine? Just asking because our news tends to report on newer procedures that are either less invasive or offer better outcomes.

My thought is above some wind speed self landing and emergency shut off become more important than water relaunch. FWIW my deep water relaunch success rate w Ozone Summit open cell foil...

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

I'm a beginner so my advice is based on a very small amount of experience but this has helped me get through the painful wipe out phase. More time taxiing on the surface helps me as an early learner. I find if I get up on foil too soon everything explodes. Therefore I make a conscious choice to go 2...

I doubt this is causing uneven shrink between front lines. More likely from looping kite only one direction ...

The 9 meter Hyperlink on 30 meter lines delivered beautifully. I nailed my first clean surface jybes. I can't see the need for a larger kite at this ti...
