Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

My last foil just barely fit in my car fully assembled and mounted to the board. I had a set of Flyboy foil covers that I'd throw on, wedge it into the back of my car, then forget about it until my next session. Before regattas I usually disassemble, clean, fill/paint/repair, then sand and reassembl...

to shim the fuselage do you simply put something in the fuselage cavity, towards the front (?!), before dropping it onto the mast?
Yup!

Re: How to tune leading edge collapse

Too much camber in the kite can cause the airflow over the top skin to be disrupted and cause a front collapse at speed. Reduce the camber in the kite by tightening C or B, or by lengthening Z a bit. Before you do anything to the bridle, though, make sure your lines and bar are in proper trim. Somet...

Re: any downsides to shimming stabiliser and big wing mast length

Shims are great, and the best part is that if you don't like it, you can usually go back the way it was by loosening one or two screws. I've shimmed both foils I've owned at this point and felt like it helped. I'm about to get a brand new foil that has a fixed tail, but even that can be shimmed at t...

Re: Self Landing Foilkites in 20+kts

"I'm going to fly the wing tip right into your hand, just stand there and let it flap downwind of you like a flag and I'll come grab it from you." Then as soon as they grab hold of your wingtip, you run towards them to slack your lines and flag the kite out. I find the biggest problem when getting a...

Re: Sand your trailing edges

I really don't understand: if there is no performance loss and everything becomes quieter and safer, how come manufacturers don't make TEs blunt/sanded on the factory? what gives? They either don't know the physics underlying proper TE shaping, know but don't care enough to do anything about it dur...

It flys like it did out of the bag new.
If this is true, you'll only do more harm than good trying to mess with it. Once this is no longer true, you can explore a variety of tips for relaxing certain risers on the bridle, etc, but for now enjoy a kite that flies as good as it did on day 1!
