Re: On Shore Wave Kites

My take on things (confirming what some of you already said): * To have fun, at least a couple of degrees side here and there are a must, fully completely on does not cut it for me. Kite: * Fast * very quick-turning, with defined feedback * Must fly upwind very well * Must drift nicely and with sta...

Re: Moses 2018

Hej Peter, No wind this weekend, really busy at work, preparing for going to Tokyo for work Jan 24- feb1. Won't be motivated Feb 3-4 with jet lag and then leaving feb9. Maybe on a trip I'll do some foiling in Japan... Aaah, that makes sense and what I thought :thumb: Skandinavians are usually not p...

Re: Leaking Boston Valve

Have had the same issue. Friction with rubber seal kicks in before it becomes air tight. A bit of spit on both sides of the washer will usually does it, a longer term solution is something like a dab of molycote on both sides of the washer, careful though this will attract sand. You mean, the same ...

Re: Wave Riding with a Foil Limits

You say "wear a helmet" - but you dont on the video ? Or was that the day you learned that :naughty: You will fall forward and when the wave pushes the foil at you then it is a bit playing the odds whether the foil will hit you or not. Some of my early sessions were with a helmet but on this one I ...

Re: Leaking Boston Valve

Great to hear - and you could also, if you get screaming good conditions NOW, take a sealing ring from one of the other kites, till you get a new one :naughty:

Re: Moses 2018

Snip... Won't get out on it till 2nd week in February in cabarete. Curious Tom, why ? Busy at work, or maybe the weather is colder at your place, lots of snow and ice, as I reckon you sometimes got a lot colder weather in Sweden, eventhough I would have imagined the pressure systems and weather to ...

Re: Leaking Boston Valve

Do you HAVE a rubber seal ? Asking, as I had one funny situation last weekend out with my 8 m2 kite. I could hear it slightly "hissing" from the valve after it was pumped hard :( (I always put the valve up to my ear before and after tightening the valve - this way I am 100 % it goes to non leaking) ...

Re: Liquid Force compatible surf foil wing

Now that looks great - I really like the LF gear. I’m also riding s china Takuma as well as a Zeeko green and white. If anything, the china Takuma is a bit too slow for normal foiling - something in between like this Impulse seems like a great compromise. Agree, the impulse setup/wing looks great f...
