Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

Good posts both JST and edt. Wakestyle reminds me of the phase of skateboarding when it became all super technical flippety spinny flat land tricks. Remarkably skilled trickery but the average viewer's interest, skater or not, lasts about 1 minute. Unless you can appreciate the finer skills involved...

Re: 2 kites quiver: 8m and 12m?

If you were going really simple and wanted a 1 kite quiver, it would probably be a 9m or 10m. It's the in-between size. Looking at my sailing log stats, it's the most used kite (varies by location of course). But then if it's light, you get to watch your buddies having fun if you don't have a 12m. W...

Re: Morocco tips

Thanks Tbbuk. As much as I'd be stoked on the endless wind, my wife would not be. Ha. Maybe Essaouira isn't the spot for us, or maybe we visit for a few days, on route to elsewhere. I get my kiting in, then carry on to the mellow surf spot. :-)

Morocco tips

Looking for any tips, suggestions, and first-hand reports for Morocco travel. My wife and I are thinking of going in March 2019 for a couple of weeks. We both surf, I kite as well (mostly in surf, foil too, but not really interested in flat water). My wife likes mellow point break type waves without...

Re: What got you into Hydrofoiling?

A little different for me. Lifetime surfer, who took up kiting to make the most of the blown out days, then found out it's the best way to make the best of all those windy no-surf months. Life Changed. First intro to foiling was videos Laird Hamilton towing into big waves with his boots and long mas...

Re: Nugget as Foilboard

Looks like a great foil platform. Short, wide , thick. I have attached a couple kite surfboards now. The narrow one isn't as good when it touches down, tends to dive under the surface. The wider one resists better.

Re: Foiling - only for frequent riders or occasionals as well

Sailing the Hoverglide was like trying to walk along a very thin girder with someone at each end shaking it. Sailing the Moses was like trying to walk along a long suspended rope with someone at each end shaking the rope. But well worth the effort and time, Moving over to the Moses carbon gear is n...

Re: Crossing a lull by pumping? Material & How to?

Interesting question. Seems like it could make sense, to generate enough speed to gain apparent wind and make that 100m. There was a video this year of someone at La Ventana dropping their kite in light wind, then pumping around it to get the lines taut and relaunching. Not exactly the same, but in ...
