Re: RE vs C1

Only advice I can give, if you decide RE engine fits you best, go for 2018, not 2017. 2018 harness works better with dakine slider bar. I think dakine slider is easier to keep rope tight than RE.

Re: Ridges and grooves vs flat decks

I rode with an arch bar. It seemed nice at first, but eventually became a nuisance. I removed it. It was uncomfortable on long reaches. It got in the way at other times. On my foil SUP, I tried bumps to mark front foot location. It became a nuisance too. It’s just better to have total freedom for yo...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Why do we need to know who the kite designers is? We don’t, and we don’t know who he is on many smaller brands. Companies use contract designers because he is not needed on the payroll 365 days a year for just a few models. Heck, some of the big brands over design and make a kite worse one year to t...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

This press release in May 2016 is about when I recall Kai Lenny’s GoFoil logos were hidden on his downwind foiling runs. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ejbEAtkyefc Shortly afterwords, GoFoil in the US, was pushed by Starboard reps and Starboard dealers seemed to be the only guys who had the foil. At ...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Here is an example of Naish lying about what foil Lenny was riding: It feels like Naish is getting beaten up and GoFoil is god lately. I offer an alternative view of history, without any first hand knowledge. Kai was instrumental in making GoFoil famous by showing what was possible. Working with Ag...

Re: G10 wing replacement for fragile carbon

What? A SUP set up on your foil board sounds like a mistake, now I am confused. I have seen the SUP wings, they are Massive, so very thick and Blunt edges, but you like the way it sails. Tell us why? Is it something that we should try? Why do you like it so much? I am wondering if I am missing out ...

@Dwight: thanks for the responses. Why did you sell the gong foil if I may ask?
I tried a SUP foil and fell in love. I’m kiting with the Naish SUP foil.

Re: Cloud D1 good for boosting on foil?

Have you tried the Boxer? I went from Gong strutless to Boxer. Making the switch, I was worried I would loose the magic feel of a strutless kite, but I did not. I did gain jumping, range, and better relaunch. I’m pleasantly surprised by how strutless the boxer feels, without the drawbacks of strutle...

Re: G10 wing replacement for fragile carbon

The gong is very high quality. Flawless carbon work. It’s made by sonic composites in China. The large wings are more stable and easier to learn to jibe. The medium wings feel slightly more efficient. I thought the M4 screws holding the stab were too small. It was easy to bend the screws dropping th...
