And a short strut is not necassarily helpful but can be the opposite, I would recommend 0,9 - 1 m. I have been very...

Re: Chrono V3 Vs Flysurfer Soul.

Crazy session to day with My Chrono V3 13m 8 jumps over 15m and 2 over 18m. Chrono V3 needs more cred! And yes Soul seems to be an excellent kite aswell 😊.

Re: Waring on Foil Mount adhesive

Hi NYKiter, sorry to hear you lost your foil. Apart from what the others said, I would not say that foilmount is something forbidden to be used. But I just have never seen the price to function value, as every shaper will add you solid tracks for that price without loosing the old foilless ability o...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Yes, also at my setups I have around 4 cm inbetween strut positions with and without stabi. There are also some boards with tracks to much in the back, which potentially will not allow a monofoil friendly setting, even not in the full forward strut position. Good if you can take extra long tracks as...

Re: Any experience with high load jumping using a "kite foil box"

Hi cglazier, yes I see your points, but I am sure it is not about absolute values of the strengt of a best material M6 screw but much about load caused by leverage. I have seen constructions with M6 screws of best quality steel that broke during riding and looked like out of a tensile test. Studied ...
