Re: Energy Drinks What They Can Do?

Fake news... Really? I guess you are someone who believes that Bonsai Kittens are also fake! We need to raise awareness to stop this cruelty around the World! Horrible picture but thank God the rescued kittens can be cured with homeopathic medicine. http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/...

Re: Any reviews about Kitech's Fly 15m?

Did you get to fly the FreeRS ? Its been a while but Today I had a chance to test the FreeRS 12. Wind conditions were horrible lulls to zero gusts to 20-25 km/h with direction shifts. For LW hydrofoil THIS IS IT! Quick turning (at least the same speed as the previous 9m2), constant pull while loopi...

Re: How often do you swim in @ <10knots ?

After a few long swims if your kite still ends up in the drink then your LW kite is not really for LW, or your need to improve your LW skills or you really like swimming. Imho a 80ish kg rider needs a 10-12m2 foil kite for LW foiling. You rig bigger and will be overpowered easily but for racers its ...

Re: Board Build #2

Nice build please report back how it holds up! Why did you use basalt glass? Just for the looks or any added strength, stiffness, etc?

Re: Foot Straps

I adjusted my straps really loose to avoid my feet jamming during crashes. I think you don't need tight straps except if you race, even jumping are not an issue with really loose straps. I use Dakine/Ion windsurf straps.

Re: Hand-held vacuum cleaner for inflation

I'm a complete newbie when it comes to foils. (Thanks for the sarcasm Rufusz, I guess you were born expert) Flying them is ok but launching, especially if the wind is low, is my biggest challenge. If the kite is inflated it gets much easier. (sometimes it gets inflated after failed launch attempts)...

Re: Hand-held vacuum cleaner for inflation

Perfect example of 1st world problem ;)

Once I saw a guy inflating a 21m2 FS speed with a similar gadget. I'm sure he had board leash as well, an other must have accessory ;)
