Re: ideal LEI for freeride/race

If you want a small LEI: - ocean rodeo flite - ozone edge - north rebel For me the flite is the best because of its lightweight construction, the kites fly in 8 knots no problem. I have not tried the 2018 Rebel, but, IMHO, the earlier versions are not good kites for foiling. They are heavy, don’t d...

Re: first time on 5m kite and HF

Bloody Mary you must ride "underpowered" if you have to work the kites that much :o I thought I rode small kites, but not compared it seems, I like being in the sweetspot :naughty: Anyways, it seems that those finding a 5 m2 kite "extremely fast" are the ones who dont ride surfboards much, or in li...

Re: first time on 5m kite and HF

Yeah, small kites are sooooo much fun. Unfortunately for me, I developed tendonosis of my biceps/brachialis from flying my 4.5m LF Solo on 23m lines in 15kn on a regular basis. It required constant input to keep enough power to stay on foil and I didn’t allow myself enough rest. PT for 6 weeks and c...

Re: Foot Strap recommendations

I have the really cheap LF straps. Not the fancy $40 ones but the cheap $10 ones. They stand up nicely and have plenty of room to allow for errors on foot switches. They aren’t adjustable but I prefer my straps really loose so it works for me.

Re: What got you into Hydrofoiling?

I started foiling because we have a lot of days in the 10-14kn range that just weren’t that fun on a twintip anymore. When I started foiling, I thought it would just be a light wind thing for me, but I’m at the point where any time I’m on a twintip in winds under 20kn or so I mostly find myself wish...

Re: My first long swim

Tom, thanks for posting, and glad you are okay. Good reminder to always wrap my lines carefully if wind goes slack. Where I live the wind is often side-on and it rarely totally bottoms out so I can usually just drift in if the kite goes down in light wind, but in the winter side-on can switch to sid...

Re: Moving from heavier to lighter foil

I learned on a LF Fish and SS Hoverglide. After about a year of foiling, I bought a Lift 110. It was like night and day. So much lighter, so much more lively, and so much faster. It’s great for free ride. I had the same issue with roll stability that you did with the Hoverglide. I can’t imagine goin...
