Re: Splicing kite lines for beginners

I've done line sets with 1.1mm dyneema, very slender. I used a guitar string, but would have appreciated something a bit stiffer if possible, it's a fine balance. The kiteline I've used was 12 strand, so good for a brummel or a long bury, I chose brummel.

Re: Designed foil behaviour?

1. On an average foil setup, what's the difference in angle from the horizontal of the main wing and the rear stabiliser wing? i.e. is there a natural tendency for the board to carve upwards or downwards? Some are set in the 2-3.5 degree range, tending towards a "nose-up" attitude. I've also seen s...

Re: how to go fast on hydrofoil

If your foil, kite, and control system are all properly tuned... Get going fast on a reach or barely upwind, make sure you've got a ton of speed, then sheet in almost all the way at full power and let the kite "drag" the nose of your board downwind. It will look/feel like the kite is falling back in...

Re: World Sailing AGM confirms Kiteboarding for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

i dont support any sports that are equipment performance dependent Which Olympic sports to you avidly follow that don't have a built-in advantage for those using the most modern high performance equipment? You're just an Olympics hater, that's all... Is there “world running” for runners too? Yes. T...

Re: World Sailing AGM confirms Kiteboarding for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Does the value of a used Mike’s even go down? If you knew for a fact that the previous owner had done well on it by tuning/optimizing it, you might argue that it would go up. For example, would you pay more than Mike's list price for a new setup if you knew you could buy Nico Parlier's exact strut/...

Re: World Sailing AGM confirms Kiteboarding for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

What a bunch of absolute kooks, destroying opportunities for affordable sport. An entry level LEI with control system, harness, board, and safety equipment costs north of $2k. Add a few more kites then add the premium of being high performance race equipment designed to win a world title and it's p...
