Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Re: how often do you hit fish?

on our lake in Austria near Salzburg -lake Wallersee- never so far. But what i am really concerned to touch: I hope that i can see-find every swimmer or diver before hitting someone. Two years ago - i almost hit a snorkeler which rose above the surface a few meters before me in the middle of the bay...

Re: Review: Levitaz Cruizer by Kite-Hydrofoil Miami

Some really little impressions about riding the new Cruiser on Gargano - Italy by very low wind-conditions with Flysurfer Sonic1 15. Some days ago, I met Mr. Brandstätter - Levitaz - developer - here and he liked my "free advertising" for Levitaz - smile.. [youtube]//youtu.be/r-b3KBadlEM[/youtube] h...

Re: Single skin foil for light to marginal wind ?

Last summer i tried the peak2 12m2 in my special starting situation with bushes, floating jettys and other peaple swimming there. For me - it is not possible to restart a peak from water safe. It really stays in the air much longer in lulls, but - once down - you swim. Touching the water with some p...

Re: Safety boardleash attachement for hydrofoil

Im "a fan" of sitting on the board in most situations in lightwind - to restart - to wait for restarting wind - to untangle lines - to untangle softkites. I trie to get the Board and get it under me and tangle my feet below under the board - sitting on it direct touching the front footstraps. In a k...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Just found it on Vimeo - interesting for me because of the Kite-steering in transitions - expecially the timing.. and the timing of the waterstart without footstraps.

I have to learn much more to get to this level..

Re: bamboo surfboard for hydrofoil?

Whatever You do - You dont want any "flex" in a foilboard. It has to be stiff, so that every impulse of Your feet directly goes into the foil without any time-delay. The weight of the board is not important if You are just cruising around. It seems to be a good idea to have not much weight in the fr...

Board leash

Did anyone of You have ever tried a boardleash in "gusty lowwindconditions", just for the reason not to loose the foilboard after dropping the kite at "no-windsituations", where its not possible to start the kite for 15 minutes? By playing around with this marginal winds - its pretty often that i lo...

Re: my learning progession on a hydofoil

at Irwe: its pretty normal to loop a kite in marginal wind to keep it flying - no matter which size. The 21 has to be pulled hard at the steeringline before the floater to get enough impulse. Otherwise it touches the surface. Also a littel problem can be - at the downpoint of the loop - when a guest...
