Re: Levitaz EXO and strapless

Received my 2017 Levitaz EXO. With three light straps the board has just around 3,0 kg. So in combination with the Element-Mono it is around 6,0 kg. Which is not that bad for a, in this combination, nearly indestructible, extrem light wind foil with a volume board. The shown foil with one heavy lev...

Re: one strut vs strutless

I confirm what tswierkocki wrote about the Cloud D's. There was a lot of "flapping"/luffing of the previous generation clouds but these new delta shapes and bridle arrangement seems to have fixed that. Each Cloud D seems to have a bigger range than before. Low end seems about the same but they are ...

Hi tripman. How are you getting your Clouds when Greg will only ship to US?
Friends travelling to the US. Got the kites sent to their hotel from Greg and they bring them to me. Clouds are so small that it's no problem. This way, I can get them within a week. I did it for the C1 and my current C.5.

Re: Learning to foil in 10 days

going upwind, you get your balance from your board, but also from your kite as you can lean on with the pull from the bar, as opposed to downwind where the kite pull is closed to nothing (and you're moving in complete silence as said by kas911). So the upwind position is quite classic for a surfkite...

Re: Which 9 pump for HF freeride/freestyle ??

when talking about freeriding HF, my feeling is that strutless are the real deal. I learned with a C1 8m with 27m lines in about 15knts and that was great. Only had to focus on the foil, a Spotz 2013 with the associated convertible board. 2 years after, I still use Clouds (C.5) for strapless HF and ...

Re: Next generation of BRM Cloud coming?

Looks like the infos were accurate. Cloud D are on their way. Greg and his brother have been pretty silent these last months : non video nor Cloud writings. Too busy designing and testing? Anybody knows what the next Cloud D look like?

Next generation of BRM Cloud coming?

Following remarks of some living in Maui and today's Greg CloudWritings, would there be a new generation of Cloud coming or other reason for Greg to write this : "I don’t plan to sew additional kites for the remainder of the year. I have reasonable availability currently but wanted to inform any rid...

Re: Spotz Tuna wave / freeride

Has anyone tried the 2016 Spotz Tuna wave foil? I'm looking for a high quality stable setup that will support progression of skills. Also considering Moses Fluente n Alpine foil. Thanks. Stability through chop is more important than flat out speed. Then you should think about the Ketos with wave wi...

Looking for an old kite foil video

Some weeks ago, I came across an old Maui kite foil dating from 2001 or 2002 with Cab black tip kites. Anyone who knows that video can link it for me.

Re: Wetsuits and windchill?

I've used drysuits for 4 years, NPX Lucifer and Ocean Rodeo Predator Surf. Lucifer was too bulky and not compatible with my rope spreader on my harness, so I got a OR Predator surf, but the outside neoprene layer was too tight and it's not as warm as there's no air between the outside and your skin....
