Re: 8m2 of Elf Joker7 tuning and tips

Has anyone got a bridle tuning guide or some dimensions for the Joker6 11m (and the others as well)? I've had an issue with it(lines breaking) and since then, it doesn't fly nicely at all anymore. Tips want to collapse at every tack... I've tried to contact Elf several times but no answer. If not, w...

Re: Mazella Holds Nerve to Clinch Victory in Tense Final Races

How come the gold cup and pro tour happen at the same time? A shame the fleet is split like this.

Re: Levitaz 2017

Hi Adri,

From the pictures I've seen of the people riding Leviaz in China, they all use "big" stabs instead of the Bionic stab. Fuselage length seens also shorter than the Bionic. Can you explain the reason for this?
Is it a standard Aspect stab or a different design?

Thanks,

Ben

Re: Opinions wanted Switch Helium2

I've been using Airush VXR v2 13m which is the generation before vantage and it does the job very well. Flies in 8kts no problem but might be a bit underpowered for your 90+kg...

Re: Fuerteventura in January

Hi Strekke, I don't really like going on the TT below 20kts so out of the 6 days I was there, that would have been only one day (one morning actually...). Wind ranged between 8/10 up to 22/25kts. Always from NE, including in Sotavento. I guess if you have a foil kite, then you could have been out on...

Re: Fuerteventura in January

Since nobody has answered, I'll give a quick feedback on my trip: If you have a foil board, this is a perfect time to go as it is the low season so not too crowded and flights are cheap. I've been able to kite every day with either 13 or 10m on both TT and foil. We stayed in Lajares which is a very ...

Fuerteventura in January

Hi guys, I'm going to spend 5 days at the end of Jan in Fuerte and was wondering if you could give some advice on best places to stay / kite at that time of the year. How choppy is Flag beach at that time of the year? Is there any other spots between Corralejo and Rosario? I'm taking the foil board ...

Re: Switch Kiteboarding Launches New Innovative Spider Bridl

On of the locals here in the UK was out on a N5 7m in very powered conditions. The kite seemed fine, his jumps were over 11m according to the Woo. It was mega gusty UK stormy winds. Hi kjorn, Which spot are you talking about? I was out on my N5 7m at Hill Head in the last 2 WE. Great boosting, espe...

Re: Kite racing in the UK

Hi Guys, I've missed the nationals due to injury but am now back on the water. I see there is an event in Gosport next weekend but haven't managed to get any info about it. I've contacted the BKSA but they redirected me to the event organizer that hasn't replied to me. Anyone going there? Has it bee...
