Re: Pryde CR X

That is probably what it is worth if it is with the board. Here the price is 1000 EUR or double what it is in Canada at the moment excluding board.

Re: Pryde CR X

Tried it once and as everyone has already stated it is heavy and slow. The board is not suitable for use on the foil as it is way too soft. It is just as unpredictable as the first generation race foil I had but was impossible to get beyond 20 knots of speed. The TT is probably ok, but it is big an...

Re: New ebook: A standardized warm-up for kiteboarders

Stretch if you have mobility problems irrelevant of whether you are going surfing. Stretching prior to anaerobic work out generally reduces your maximum power output and has no effect on amount of injuries.

Re: Is Taaroa / Sword Out of the Game?

Got the RS upgraded from Sword 2 with newest race wings. The foil is a little faster upwind, rolls with a little less input and is better downwind. New fuselage is coming which should address inconsistencies when really pushing. It is better than the Sword 2. Have not heard about any breaking except...

Oliver Bridge is on ML, so is Titouan, Gibbs, Ramecourt. Kerneur is on Enata foil. Based on the pictures from the event.

Maybe the screws were also run too far in, but North could of course have a bottom hole that extends a fair bit beyond the insert.

Re: New North Foil's 'PA Carbon Mix 50'

It looks like normal SMC based on the new pictures released. Would be nice if they stated what matrix material they are using though.
Do not confuse it with forged carbon process by ACSL used in high-end cars and golf clubs.

Re: Small vs large foil board

Medium is usually around 50 cm wide and 140 long. Small is 40ish wide and sub 140 long. Non of the windmeters will even measure 3 knots reliably.
