Re: Which bar for women?

It’s not just reaching the depower that is an issue, it’s being able to let the bar travel full depower stroke. You should be considering harness issues more than bar issue. How many women do we see everyday with harness hook between their boobs with kite overhead. They can’t even begin to allow kit...

Re: Sealing alu strut - still a no-no?

Look to windsurf booms for the answer. They’ve been filling them with foam for longer than some of you have been alive. 😝 They don’t try to seal the boom bodies tight, they just fill the cavity with extruded polystyrene. It is the spongey white foam that is water proof. Many foils come packed in exp...

Re: Anyone riding the KS1 Naish foil?

Taut, I have both surf wings and the kite wing. The medium surf wing is pretty fast for a surf wing. The kite wing, I expected more from. I’ve ridden kite wings that lift about the same, but we’re much faster. My kite wing makes noise. Both my surf wings are silent at any speed, which is amazing, be...

Re: Anyone riding the KS1 Naish foil?

Yes, I have the KS foil. I don’t ride it much. I ride the surf wings more. I wish the KS wing was faster than it is, to differentiate it more from the surf wings.

Re: Best Waist Harness for Overpowered Riding?

The new ride engine harness with 4 straps stays down better. I tighten the lower straps more than the upper straps.

Re: Anyone riding the KS1 Naish foil?

It’s a test I’ve been planning to do, but never got around to it because I can guess what would happen. It would be slightly more stable than using surf stab. They put anhedral in surf stab to counter extreme stability of big front wing.

Re: Conditioning when practicing both kitesurfing and windsurfing

Whenever I switch, I feel new sore muscles.

But I do have a bigger smile on my face because it keeps each sport fresh and fun.

Re: Directional footstraps ?

The tyrant is wonderful as the rear strap on a windsurfer. The most comfortable strap for extremely high loads. So Peter, you can always use it there if kiting with it doesn’t work 😃

Re: What foil should my wife and I buy as our 2nd setup?

Learning to hydrofoil has been a challenge for her, there were almost tears, some serious bruising and cuts. At dinner people would stare at her legs and look at me with disgust as if I beat her or something. Oh shit, we don’t want that... My wife learned with a SUP/surf foil. They are completely d...

Re: Drilling hardware

Leave seized. Buy another base plate. I keep all my different mast sizes stored with base plates mounted permanently. This makes for quick assembly of complete foil at beach. FYI stainless steel is a difficult material to drill compared to regular steel. This will likely turn into a nightmare if you...
