Re: Moses 2018

So I finally tried the 558/330 setup and I thought I'd leave some feedback here. I have foiled exclusively on 550/325 on a Fluente mast. Here are my impressions: - feels faster. On my Apple Watch the top speed was about the same (30 mph), but on average I was going faster - I could lean back more, a...

Re: Nailed some tacks today, feels great!

Congrats, this is a huge accomplishment. Tacking is soooo hard. Everything has to click perfectly. Since I log all my sessions, I looked at how long it took me from starting to foil until the first tack. It took me 111 hours. Since then I have foiled for another 159 hours and still far from perfect,...

Re: Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular

Here's my experience so far. Had an Apple Watch series 2 for about a year. Tracking using Strava app. Sometimes the app is unreliable but mostly works. I had the original Sport strap and I wore the watch under a wetsuit and it never came loose even in hard crashes. Recently I traveled to a tropical ...

Re: Do U use an impact vest for hydrofoiling?

I always use an Ion vest. Payed itself many times over when learning tacks and gybes as it's not hard to fall on the board (or foil itself). Just the other day I fell with my back against the edge of the board... agree also worth it for the extra flotation as I tend to go further from shore on the f...

Re: North Clickbar 2017 "cinch"/lock when steering the kite and power/depower at the same time?

Bravo to Dan/North for openly addressing the issue here, admitting it may be an issue for some people, and for being so transparent. I used a 2016 Cabrinha bar for a few weeks and couldn't get used to the bar sticking during kiteloops or downloops. So went back to an uncovered depower line with a di...

Re: Kite/Megaloop Ozone Edge

It's doable, but much more difficult and you require a lot more height to complete the loop. This kite will also have a lot more power through the loop. I think Nick Jacobsen went to King of the Air with a Switchblade, same situation. Looks awesome since it gives so much pull and swing...but also mo...
