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

Hyperlink is pretty rad in that way. Very nice drift even hydrofoilong down wind in to it.

Funny though Nash556 got talked out of a Pansh because someone suggested he might have to adjust their bridles. Adjusting bridles is a fact of life with foils, all brands need it at some point.
You can’t polish a turd.

Re: Foil Kite folding in half when going upwind!?

Nonsense, you foilholio just don't know enough. Even worse, you think you know even you don't. You foilholio don't understand different kite/mixer positions during the depower range, how line tensions and CoL are in different AoA's and how they should be for kite to behave correctly and to be stabl...

Re: short lines

I made 7 and 15 meter bars just for kicks. 30->24->20 is less noticeable except that you can get more power with a bigger loop and higher up. As it gets really short, the loop goes almost all the way from the left to right and top to bottom in the window. The wingtip of my HL 7 will hit the water ha...

Re: Kite size recommendations for first foil kite?

My last Flysurfers were speed4 lotus in 6, 8 and 10. I mostly rode the 8 - even in very light winds. Now I’m riding Hyperlinks 5, 7 and 9. I mostly ride the 7, even when other foilers ride the 12. I save my 9 for very light winds. Yesterday I launched my 9 in 8 knots. It picked up to 12 and I was no...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Like when you want to replace a light of your Mercedes, do you ship it from Germany, I don't think so. My advice to OP is to stay out of a Porsche dealership. There you pay to ship the European air for your tires. Sensitive to time and price? Check out WestMarine for some 7/64 Amstel . More time co...

Re: Suggestions on which "neutral buoyancy" foil to get.

A friend let me use his Ketos with pocket board. It’s the nicest setup I’ve used. My foil is Levitaz and the SS fuselage is a big ballast that rights the foil even more than Alu setups I have tried. When using a volume board there is some work to put it on its side. A thin board reduces the righting...

Re: Do all kites invert equally?

II’m quite happy with Naish Boxer and Ride as kid kites. Easy to keeep in the air and make power. Easy relaunch. Small sizes don’t suffer shoulder collapses. The bridle is shorter than the wingtip, reducing the risk for wraps. The depower throw is in range for shorter arms. They aren’t the best jump...

Re: Social Kitesurfing App

I’m not sure what a social app would offer a user that a kitesurfing forum would not.

I will almost always use website based services than a stand alone app on iPhone and Android.

Even FB on my phone I would go to the website.
