Re: Moses 550 wing and 325 Stabilizer review

... But yes, the 101 mast is a very good upgrade overall, even in flat water, but you will feel everything will become abit less responsive compared to the 93. The setup i ride more is 101 mast + 550 + 330. Does the mast effect the top speed? Is the 101 faster? I know it mainly depends on the wings...

Re: Has anyone gone totally hydrofoil?

... So it looks like rather a normal evolution path for old boys ;) Come on I don't consider myself as 'old boy' and my TT is collecting dust this season. Mastering tacks, turns, big airs, etc on foil will take me a lifetime ;) Off topic but does a flat or concave deck makes a huge different on pro...

Re: How fast can you go on a TT?

... I used a Polar M400 watch. Not the most suitable device but it's accurate enough to do some testings. ... I have the same watch and I think its not accurate enough...I recently had a session with over '200km/h top speed'...:) However if you export the .gpx track from the watch to the gps action...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I guess knock off companies doesn't have access to wikipedia... probably the big firewall blocks it.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

As far as I know China doesn't recognises intellectual property so moving your production there for maximum profits and bitching about knock offs at the same time seems ridiculous.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

I think these are great for first HF. If you get hooked you will buy a proper HF later anyway. I guess it won't effect the kite industry that much since all brands claim they produce unique state of the art products so surely these knock offs are inferior in every way, right? ;) The road and mtb mar...

Re: -ing gear for the lightest of the winds

My 15m2 foilkite gets me going in really light winds but I have to depower it most of the times and if the wind picks up it becomes overpowered quickly.

I guess 12m2 would be my sweet spot for LW (85 kg rider).
