Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

I just saw Ultras for sale used on ikitesurf classifieds for the first time. But they were 2018 demo kites, listed for almost new prices. I still haven't seen any "unloading" of these kites.

Re: Kiteboarding is officially sailing, gets its own medal for Paris 2024

I just want to be able to watch hydrofoil kite racing with multiple drone angles and LiveWire type on-screen augmentation. It's the only way I can actually follow a sailing race on TV. If it takes Olympics to do it, fine. I'd rather someone throw just a bit more money at the existing kitefoil gold c...

Re: Latest opinions and gear for a beginner foiler?

True, learning the feel of the foil during surface-riding is part of the foiling progression. But at least surf-foils have shorter masts, which help when learning to foil. Maybe use a surf foil, but shim the stabilizer to increase angle of attack, and reduce lift of the foil, so you can practice sur...

Re: Lighter fuselage for Slingshot Hoverglide?

Hoverglide masts are really heavy too...

Probably easier to just sell the hoverglide and buy something used and carbon. At least the hoverglides hold their resale value pretty well.

Re: fastest free ride hydrofoil?

If you really hit logs that often, why are you interested in a higher speed?

Re: Airush Lithium opinions

If cost is a consideration, try to find used gear.

Re: Anyone try the LiP Sunglasses (is Zeiss worth the extra $) ?

I recently bought a cheap pair of sunglasses safety glasses from Home Depot, and a short piece of string. Drilled holes in the back of the temple pieces to tie the string. I've done two sessions, and they stay in place when I crash, and have no frame to block my peripheral vision of the water. Maybe...

Re: New GW 111

I've heard getting a good training partner if more important than foil prep.

Good luck!
