Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

A quick update on my WingWorks Agilus 7m. Flew Mzingly well straight off the sewing machine. however I soon paid the price of using cheap ripstop of unknown provenannce, within half a dozen sessions the canopy had stretched so much it was unflyable. So have made new canopy and stitched onto original...

I contacted Karsten 6 months ago after reading this thread - I mentioned that i am a great fan of strutless kites, already o...

Re: Strutless gems - BRM clouds compared to Storm Voyager?

Hi - as the OP thanks for all your responses - most enlightening. After 13 odd years of kiting, hydrofoils and strutless kites have really rekindled my passion this year. Now I can go some way to answering my own original question, as I now have both brands in the van. Sylvain at Storm was helpful a...

Strutless gems - BRM clouds compared to Storm Voyager?

Hi - I have been riding a quiver of BRM Clouds for 6 months (7C2, 10 C1, 14.5C2). I love them for riding strapless surfing, and now Find That They Are Most Excellent for foiling too (very light, wonderfully quick, incomparable drift, loads of deower) However I now find I need a 5m - can anyone compa...

Re: How to set up Wainman Rabbits for Tight Turning?

thank you all - really helpful stuff. i had a quick fly of the bunny on the beach today on upwind settings and there certainly feels like there is more 180 degree quick flick ability.

How to set up Wainman Rabbits for Tight Turning?

I am however struggling a bit to replicate throwing the kite from 9 `0`clock to 3`0`clock ( and vice versa) when doing top/bottom turns without the kite climbing higher in the window and...
