Re: How to flush sand out of a foil kite.

I used to inflate my foil with a fan and had it hanging under a ceiling fan. Keeping the air moving inside and out dries it in a fraction of the time.

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

We have guys that paddle out into our waves too. They get some nice rides but looks like way too much work for me.🤣

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

My home spots are on the 10th largest fresh water lake in the world. The best waves happen when the wind is pretty much blowing straight onshore. They only setup in the shore break and further out is mostly just chop. Waves come in steep, fast and close together. They don't have the same energy as e...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

With so much of the fuselage out in front. How well does it handle impact?

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

Dont be afraid to mismatch fins. You may not notice a difference at all. But sometimes the change can be dramatic and not always in a good way. It could turn a good ride into a dog. Or it could be magic, the best most fun combo ever. You wont know until you try.

Re: Is snowkite kiting colder than winter kite boarding

What's the coldest you would ever go snowboarding? Use an online wind chill calculator to find that threshold for kiting.

Re: AxisAxis New Wave vs. Ocean Rodeo Jester (strapless freestyle)

Hmmm?? Jester... the fool, buffoon, clown 🤡? 😂 "Hyperactive, twitchy, and lively". Not qualities I would look for in a surfboard for myself. Makes it sound like it's got a mind of its own and hard to control.🤔 I haven't tried the Jester, but I had 2 sessions on the Duke. Kept swapping with my ride b...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Buyer beware! I am an industrial radiographer and I have xrayed various castings from China for client's that out sourced to Chinese foundries. Here's my experience with Chinese quality control. I can be nonexistent. Castings start out like crap, swiss cheese internally (normal in appearance on exte...

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

Nothing like mitts for cold conditions. Most guys here use mitts and will easily outlast anyone with gloves or lobster mitts (unless they are full dry gloves).

Re: Channels on a surfboards

Seems like marketing to me. What was old is new again. Some of the channels seem ridiculous to me. Do the advantages in ride and performance of a board with channels out weight the added time and complexity of designing and building a board with channels? Why are there not more boards with channels?...
