Re: Onda633 fuselage too heavy, any way to make a carbon one?

^ How when the leverage now is much bigger on one side only? Way more stress. We talking a "console" in stress mechanics, and before removing a stab was "beam" with "two support" something like this: https://d2vlcm61l7u1fs.cloudfront.net/media%2F7b3%2F7b30e20c-8042-4cec-9768-a6aa1f6867fb%2Fphp7kIHC...

Re: Onda633 fuselage too heavy, any way to make a carbon one?

No, on the contrary. Removing the rear stab will typically put the COE slightly back, so you have to move a bit back on the board too. Meaning less stress on the fuselage-mast joint. Remember, the stab usually pulls a bit down, whereas the front wing pulls up - and now you remove the rear stab pulli...

Re: Goofy versus regular surf riding

Peter you seem like a regular guy :thumb: Ha haa, thanks PullStrings, but very rare I get to ride on that side here, so my goofy side has evolved and now being stronger/more fluid now (okay, lets not be too cocky and instead say, my goofy is not totally as bad as my regular). So having windsurfed a...

Re: Goofy versus regular surf riding

Just for the récord Peter : when i'm talking right/left handers ,i'm refering to WAVES peeling to the right or to the left .....not need to know what hand you use to write..... Of course, that goes without saying :thumb: We are talking regular versus goofy riders on left or righthanders (waves), an...

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

You might be right, but it might also just be because the kitewing/windsail is easily available because of years of use in skiing, so of course some use it on hydrofoils, either because it works well, or just for the fun of trying to do it with these. Dont know, but lets see how it turns out - I am ...

Re: Goofy versus regular surf riding

The REAL kiteboarding shop in Cape Hatteras ran a video wave riding competition and of the six winners, three are goofy and three regular. Given that the vast majority of riders should be regular, that's a remarkably even split. I wonder if goofy riders are a bit more creative? Like Jalou Langaree....

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Isnt that the good old "Wingsail" like we had back in the late 80s?

We had one here too.

Maybe slightly tweaked now as simply removed the mast because foiling does not require the same power, but pretty much the same:

Re: High Pressure kite by Bruno Legaignoux

Agree fully with edt and IainMacaskill, we dont want or need "wakeboarding" which is a totally different sport, far away from the wind powered lovely sport we got. There is a reason why so few do both - some freestylers yes, but overall not many. So bring it on, every new type of kite is interesting...

Re: alcohol and kitesurfing :-)

I dont understand the purpose of this thread at all, as I dont see any connection with these two different topics "alcohol and kitesurfing"??? Btw, IF any, the very best way to "recover" after being totally wasted all night at a great party - is to go surfing the next morning/day, it really works wo...
