Re: On Shore Wave Kites

I disagree with this. If you are riding the face of the wave then you are riding waves, regardless if it's onshore or not. In good sized windswell you can let your kite drift completely and be 100% powered by the wave your are surfing. The main issue with surfing onshore is the wind speed vs. the w...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Direct on shore, you are not really wave riding in my view (as Plummet said - define wave riding!) In these conditions, you are playing in waves. Here, any all around kite is fine, including Naish Pivot. I disagree with this. If you are riding the face of the wave then you are riding waves, regardl...

Re: Simmons Planing Hull

I have a mini-simmons outline, essentially it looks like a half circle at the front and parallel lines down the side to a square end. 22 inches wide, 5'2" long, has a huge concave with two BIG long fins. Works a treat as a light wind board and goes well in little waves. I have also ridden it with li...

Re: Brisbane (Broadbeach) February/March

You will typically get three or four days of 20 knot+ afternoon seabreezes (NE or SE) during Feb to March in Southern Queensland heading all the way down the NSW coast to Victoria.

I am 100kg and would typically use a 8/10/12.

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Very well described Peter. The Zeeko Blue/White and Green/White come with different size rear stabilisers. The difference in the amount yaw you feel travelling in a straight line with the smaller fin is quite amazing. Added an additional sense of fun to my riding. I think as you improve you end up t...
