Re: short lines

Looping to get going is one thing, but if you are talking about looping through a jibe, you can go with much shorter lines. I've seen a 21m race kite looped on 15m lines not problem through a foiling jibe. When you're riding under the kite as it loops, the kite can pretty much stay in the same spot...

Re: 2018 North Click bar line strength?

Don't know the exact numbers, but I do know that I splicing 8-strand lines greatly reduces their breaking strength to an extend that it makes me wonder why Aaron, Ruben, Lasse etc don't break them during KotA boosting and looping stuff.

Just like Evan. I get out of the car, pull out my kite, put on my harness/lifejacket, pull out hydrofoil, walk to beach, unroll kite, unroll lines, ride away. 10 mins TOPS if I'm slow and careful.
Hate you :P :D :lol:
You get lazy if you kite every evening :lol:

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

It barely fits, back wing over the front seat. No passengers possible and only works with a small board, did take me some time to figure out that this was even a possibility.

Re: 9m Hyperlink UL loses pressure too soon

This topic was about the Hyperlink losing air faster compared to a Soul, not if a tumbling Hyperlink that barely touches the water was relauncheable or not. I never had problems relaunching in high winds, it is always the <8kn days where the kite sits on the water when waiting for a gust to relaunch...

Re: 9m Hyperlink UL loses pressure too soon

From my experience Ozone foilkites are just not stitched/assembled in a way that it holds air like Flysurfer or even other foil kites. My Chrono V1, V2 en R1 V1 deflated also really quick and where like a sponge when dropped on even ripple-free water. My Peter Lynn aero's could float for ages compar...

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

This time I am with foilholio, old kite with too much and long bridles with high AR are sensitive to bridle shrinkage. As C and Z shrink the most you get a kite with increased camber that has lost its reflex profile to automatically levels the kite when flying maximum depowered. With too much camber...

Re: Kite Release Training

The chickenloop is a flawed design, 99% never unhook so why stick with a design that allows you to do that? This way there there is no incentive to practice the release ever, just unhook after your session, unclip the leash and pack up. With a hooked-only design you can make the qr so that you are a...

Re: Jumping=new love of my life!

U mesure the 10m in8knt with woo 😂😂😂of course No, by the percentage of kites you can look down on from above and the nice view. Woo only confirms that you went huge that session, as do the guys with open mouths on the beach. Boosting on the foil makes my twintip collecting dust on all days with 7bf...
