Re: WOO 3.0 pre-order

What are requirements for the smartwatch to see the height? M400 is a basic sport watch with bluetooth which can receive some notifications, is it enough?

Re: Which helmet?

I'm looking for a full face helmet to hydrofoiling.
An ice hockey helmet with a steel cage would protect face well, but is it interfering visibility too much? A plastic visor wouldn't protect face area so well..

Re: Calling cold water kiters! - Glove me.

NRS mittens. Pre-curved, super warm and good touch to the bar.

I don't buy any gloves any more what are not precurved!

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

Nobile T5 :cool2:
I was so impressed how smooth and stable it went. I had to buy one.
I bet there must be a better one, haven't tried all the twintips yet!

Re: Dear old Nobile 666 and 555

Kites have changed a lot before year 2010 and are definitely better compared to older ones. But how about the boards. What would have been changed?
Maybe they change a little every year, but is the new model always better than the old one? At least graphics of nobile boards are crap nowadays.

Re: kite low AR easy relaunch or race for hydrofoiling?

I have also 13m boost. It's a good kite for foiling, quite light and with good windringe - but strutless kites stay in the air much better.

Dynamic name tags to your kite gear

Do you know anyone who have lost their kiteboard? :) I have made a website as a hobby project to create dynamic name tags: https://dytag.com The main idea is: When you're traveling and there is your home address on your kiteboard. Would anyone bring the board back to you, to your home? If you can pu...

Re: Copper Aluminum paste as tef gel alternative ?

How about tar, would it work as well? https://www.maston.fi/en/front-page/pro ... -tar-400ml
It is used to prevent bolts to stuck.
I have used it in my foil threads, but only a couple of months, so I can't tell yet did it work well or not :)

Re: Which kite manufacturer's kites have the highest quality/are most durable

2012 LF envy and NRG were very durable. Thick materials. 2014 switch nitro4 has the same kind of thick fabrics. As a downside kites are quite heavy, but it doesn't matter in small sizes in my use. Can't say the same of my best kites (2011 8m nemesis and 2012 ts17) and 13m boost. They are lightweight...

Re: Flat water in Greece in July?

Yes, Prasonisi is very windy in July: https://www.windfinder.com/windstatistics/prasonisi BUT it's crowded.. Onshore-side is less crowded if you go 500 m from shore to upwind, but there are waves. Rescue service was 20€ a day three years ago. And it's not available all day from sunrise to sunset (if...
