Re: What are your Worst Accidents Hydrofoiling?

I did not get the foil in the lines when learning... But later, when able to ride, I did two or three times, no injury though :x On the first one the kite quickly ended in the water, my luck as I almost panicked fearing the foil "axe" coming toward me while kite looping. The next times I simply cont...

Re: Short masts

There is no such thing as an "ideal short mast length" IMO. I find a 70 to 80 cm really short, too short for most things actually and use it very rare, try to avoid it but it can be necessary. Others love a 30 to 50 cm mast for learning and schools or extreme low spots, so depends on your use :D 8) PF

Re: More and more riders on less and less spots?

Peter. How about Sydwestpynten south of Copenhagen? I would assume there are more kiters now, no? You are lucky in Denmark. So many spots. Ocean and flat. Too bad it is so cold. Would be another Egypt or Brazil then 🤗 I have no idea, many years since I rode my TT, and Sydvestpynten is on the "islan...

Re: Foot Straps

Indeed yes.

Really lose is just BAD, for board control when racing - so really small you obtain the same thing, namely you dont get stuck in the straps :thumb:

Re: Short leashes

Or your hook :D

I've shortened all my leashes during the years, good to see they come "right" for most users now :naughty:

Re: Please help and sign petition to save Cold Hawaii

Here in Denmark we have an extreme amount of wind power, maybe even the most in the world, GREAT :thumb: I can hear many of you dont have that amount, thus not the same experience with the effects on wind and kitesurf ? Some are situated at open sea, we have one close to where I live, 111 power gene...

Re: Why you should foilboard - Ride with Blake: Vlog 31

Just watched it, and he is spot on in everything he says and he got a good point about "almost none of the good riders want to go and look stupid again when learning hydrofoil", so true and ridiculous too :thumb: Foilboarding or Kitefoiling, doesnt matter what it is called as we will never be able t...

Re: Did I just invent a new trick ? (Probably not)

Thanks - so it is the 96 cm carbon mast and the standard Airush wing :D I have ridden that one in january in Langebaan (with the wide Core foilboard though, and not the narrow longer team board), worked great, a good allround wing for "everything" performs good, turns well, and starts okay early. I ...

Re: Best kite for sub 10 knot foiling

Definitely, longer lines is a must indeed. But it stil requires a light "not normal" kite when under 10 knots, and then with longer lines you can push the limit down even further :thumb: I use 26 m for my small kites 3.5 and 5 and up (dislike 21-22 m even for these, when hydrofoiling), and then when...

Re: Pack Reshuffled in Topsy Turvy Twin-Tip Racing

Hmmm, sorry to say, but isnt it a bit odd and stupid, that the TT racing class is lead by the same who leads the hydrofoil class (almost at least)

Which makes one think, that one or the other class is obsolete somehow....

Just a thought I know :wink:
