Do you have a video about this specific kind of board pumping?

Re: Seat harness for Hydrofoiling. Which are you using and why?

Dakine Vega, light and comfortable. I even use it with my surf for wave sessions. Several foiling friends adopted it lately and are happy with. this. good balance of structure and weight. I recently went to the windsurf version which is identical but without leash pass on the ass...little less weig...

Re: How often do you swim in @ <10knots ?

As said above, the new racekites are incredible light wind machines. Two weeks ago we started with 10-12 kts, very steady ocean-quality side-on, that gradually diminished to nothing. Really, at the beach it was between 3-4 kts measured and barely perceptible at all. The last kites falling down were ...

Re: Parlier Takes KiteFoil World Title While Mazella Grabs GoldCup World Series Crown

Congratulations for the first world title of Anais-Mai! Daughter of a good friend, I witnessed her very first steps in kiteboarding and snowkiting during family vacations. Later, I remember how hard she pushed learning the foiling air jibe, she must have fallen a hundred times during a shared sessio...

Re: Nico Parlier finishes off with a perfect score in Hyeres champagne sailing conditions

Nico has a special talent for foiling. Maybe I have already told the story: It was a couple of years ago, I was blessed so I did not participate in the French Championship final event in Wimereux as a rider but helped in the security boat the non-kiter security staff, knowing how to handle kites in ...

Re: WindFoil - KiteFoil

Have not tried the windfoil yet, but I think that there is a serious problem that will limit it's use in light conditions: you can not obtain the same power stroke by pumping a windsurf sail than by working a kite, which will limit both the waterstart and early foiling.

Re: How has foiling improved your normal riding?

In addition to duck tacks, I never did heelside downlooped jibes on my surfboard before foiling: now its a nice move to quickly catch a suddenly good-looking icoming wave while riding out. You move the kite to 11h, switch feet and right you slash your first cut-back on the crest!

Re: I suck at jybes

Yeah exactly, the closed feet stance that I suggested above is also done by foiling at full speed with both feet in the straps, before starting to gradually move them out of the straps without letting the board to touch water. Quite a fun and you learn a lot about the reactions of your board.

Re: I suck at jybes

Lot of good ideas here. 2 small tricks to add to the great list of BraCuru, which helped me to "unstuck" for my first fully foiled jibes: 1. First I lost (a lot of) time by trying to transform s-jibes to fully foiled jibes: too hard to switch foot without touching water. Next I started from scratch ...
