Re: Stranded kitesurfer used Apple watch to call for a ride

That's some awesome reporting right there... They probably googled hydrofoil and a guy on his Airchair popped up not knowing the difference.

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

I had a similar experience with the C1 as riddim1. I wrote my issues in another thread about it and have moved on after trying to break it in for the entire spring and summer. I'm more than likely going to demo a RE sometime next spring. It looks like Dakine did a total over haul of the C1 design an...

Re: Liquid Force Happy Foil Complete Kit (2016)

Why are you changing up? And would you mind sharing your impressions of the happy foil. There aren't a ton of non-bias reviews out there on this setup.

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

The cost of the new thruster isn't bad actually. I think they're $900 but without a travel bag (no bag is no issue for me). Can you tell me how the liens of the happy foul is? That was my only concern with it. I've spoke with a couple of people and they've said it's afaster foil than the rocket.

Re: I hate the wmfg pump

I'm short at 5'7 and only noticed a difference when it gets harder to pump. Which at that point I just do shorter strokes. I love mine it's by far the smoothest operating pump I've owned and definitely faster.

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

Thanks for the advice Horst... I'm going to watch sales and what comes out over the fall/winter and make a decision. I'm looking for something that I'll be able to grow into some without having to purchase a new set of $400 wings once I get the hang of it.

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

The Kiteboarder put together a pretty good video covering the Thruster foil. According to LF it has the same low end as the rocket low aspect foil and the same top end as the medium aspect happy foil. I'm looking to buy my first foil in the next few months is this possible and are there any scarifie...

2018 LF Thruster Foil

I saw LF's new foil line showed up on MacKite's website today. Curious if anyone has tried the thruster out and how it would be to learn on?

Re: Dakine C-1 Hammerhead any reviews or experience

I purchased a C1 back in March and tried giving it some time to break in but ended up going back to my old renegade because of how uncomfortable I get while I ride. I posted in another thread that it did seem to be getting better after I used it a few times, but then I got busy with work and didn't ...
