Re: Flysurfer-specific training?

Foilonfoil, I rarely use the trim strap, perhaps once every 20 sessions. For me I find enough trim just using my arms. One thing that helps is to not use a hook, I use a Mystic or Ride Engine harness with my chicken loop attached directly to the sliding rope. This gives me lots of adjustment trim. ...

Re: Havent been kiting for over a month..... Dont care!

The longer the break due to injury or business travel, the less inclined I feel about getting back on the water. One on the water, I cannot wait for my next session.

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

Clamping aluminum and carbon fiber together without isolation is a problem. The anodizing on the aluminum will not provide enough isolation. There needs to be plastic isolation between the wings and fuselage and the bolts that secure the wings also need isolation via tefgel or lanolin ideally togeth...

Re: Flysurfer-specific training?

I agree that you want to ride slightly de powered in light wind, but you can do this by riding with the bar out a bit from the chickenloop, no reason to pull the depower strap, unless you have short arms. It had a lot to do with the differences with kites we are flying and their behavior when thing...

Reach out and find a local foil kiter who is on the racing circuit. They are a great foil kite traini...

Re: Build Your Own Bridle Lines

Hmm... ;) Likely I will match them. Still need to play around a bit. Flysurfer told me to copy the other side with the new one for length. You are dealing with an entire bridle system that has changed from factory. This was using new DC60 line from Liros, the maker of the line that FS uses. Thanks....

Re: anti-slip versus pad on a foilboard
