Re: Jumping (and landing) technique

Not that much experience as usually strapless (...) Also riding strapless, but I don't let that deter me from getting high! Usually a few times in the session, I'll go for it, and just jump and enjoy the view from up there, sometimes upside down. Gentle redirecting of the kite, mellow splash. The w...

Re: foil skills improve my TTip riding, wow!

I guess all the hours spent foiling teach you more about finesse, balance, power frugality, efficiency, (and...light wind relaunch) which are skills that are all somewhat transferable to other subdisciplines of kiting. Foiling also contributes to having some freakin' strong legs, which will help you...

Re: How do you transport (car) your HF?

I don't unbolt anything... Fits straight in. That's a Citroen C3, with the back seats folded down. SpitFire is good for transport as there is no protruding stab at the back.

Re: Nobile foil board nightmare!

Wow. You would think a company would offset the screws or make a key fit so you could not get it wrong. Especially knowing about it and putting together the write up caution. Rock On Since the profile of the mast is routed into the plate, that seems pretty unbelievable that someone could mount it b...

It sounds as if yet another international kite brand will be based in New Zealand.
In a nutshell: North is going South!

Re: Strappless or Strapped for Learning to Foil ??

(...) Straps tell you where you need to keep your feet. Straps also help with balance because you can direct the board by lifting your feet up also. (...) This assumes that the straps are in the correct position FOR YOU, which is a pretty strong assumption when you're learning and discovering the b...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

it's just because there is a slightly longer phase of unlearning your typical foil habits, that it's prob best to stick to it for a couple of sessions until you figure out the right foot position and balance. Once at that stage, it's super easy to switch back and forth to other foils and it will jus...

Re: Is directional more fun than door in LW?

Gotta love a finless door when it's shallow! Not only because no other board can ride in the shallowest places, but also because there is a substantial benefit from the ground effect. Skim board would work well too, (that's what they're made for!), but the door will have the advantage going upwind d...
