Re: Do you understand apparent wind? Video explanation

I saw that video, and am glad someone put an anemometer on a kite, but it barely scratched the surface of what should be tested. Position in the window, diving the kite (power-stroke), different line lengths while power stroking, upwind, reaching, downwind and position in the wind window during all ...

Re: Ozone Hyperlink / Kitech Free RS

What are the prices? The Free RS isn't even on the Kitech website yet.

Re: Ozone Hyperlink / Kitech Free RS

Glad to hear foil kites are going this direction. Eventually I'd like to build a travel quiver without a pump. And my wife doesn't like windy vacations spots, so it will probably be a 12m foil kite, split-board, and carbon foil... Hyper light and conceptair pulsion were on my short list. I'll have t...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Hey guys, I want to get into kitefoiling. Do you think I can use this Chinese hydrofoil along with a Naish Hover 130 to learn how to foil? I don't want to buy something like the Liquid Force Rocket Fish and then sell it to upgrade to this. naishHover.jpg foil.png Why buy a brand new, name brand boa...

Re: Short masts

28"

Even 24" masts are getting popular because of the SUP foils.

Re: Opinion on lessons

Foothooks, not straps.

Do at least one of the following to make it easier to ride the board on the surface:
1. Move footstraps (ideally hooks) all the way forward.
2. Move mast all the way back, if board has tracks.
3. Shim rear wing for less lift.

Re: Best kite for sub 10 knot foiling

Lots of long threads already on this topic in the hydrofoil section of the forums. Everyone seems to be able to have fun foiling in 10mph wind, but as soon as you want to go below that then all sorts of factors become more important: -how gusty (and more important, lull-y) is your wind. If you are o...

Still confused. H1 and H4 are the same?
H4 appears to be the biggest.

Re: Slingshot H4

My interpretation of SS website: H1: "surf, sup, wave rider" (stock high wind windsurfer wing) (H5?H1<H2) H2: "larger wing, more lift, user friendly performance" (stock light wind windsurf wing) (H1<H2<H4) H3: "faster flying, higher performance" (no idea how big it is. Looks higher aspect-ratio) H4:...
