Re: Shoulders Forward?

True - it makes no sense as such for anything no... :wink:

Apart from being "fun" just doing it, and the "feel" - but hey, isnt that what it is all about ? :naughty:

Re: riding hands-up

So true Regis - I did it without a stopper on flat water some time ago, just to feel how you "glide" without any kitepower, and how everything were balanced. And now I do it for fun on waves, small windwaves or bigger ones everything works - put the kite up close to 12, let the bar fully out, so it ...

Re: Ketos wave xl vs Moses Onda 633?

Sorry, i ment Wave XL not XXL. I edited my post now. Thank you for all your answers, keep them coming... Aaaah, the Ketos WaveXL. It is 790 cm2 quite low AR. The Onda 633 is extremely low AR, and apparently (according to grigorib having measured) around 1190 cm2 so MUCH bigger and should maybe be c...

Re: Surf/kite wing crossover (impulse) for lighter rider

Just wondering if any one has tried the impulse (cloud24) or similar type wing who is a light weight like 130lbs? Is weight even a factor when it comes to foil size/style? I can not answer the first question. But the second - YES, size is a huge factor compared to rider weight. In the same way as o...

Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Had another day on my Spitfire. Standard wings, 20mph winds or there about. 195lbs and flying a 8.5 kahoona. All in all some progression. Most of the time board in the water with a lot of slapping. Was able to get foiling above the chop on occasion. When I did always encountered the board/foil porp...

Re: Groove Skate

So it sounds like the straps are one size fits all. I ride in very different conditions requiring everything from 5mm booties to barefoot with big feet (12US/46EU). I usually ride with one front very loose strap but have plans to start jumping with 2 straps. Any chance some adjustable straps could ...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Okay, it seems that the single skins works fine, but not the same power and smooth performance as some of the other contenders: Racekites in the light versions - but they turn a bit slow because of higher AR usually, and seem to "fold" easier. Concept Air Pulsion light version. Aeros Navy2 Ultraligh...

Re: Storm voyager vs other strutless

I´ve tried Cloud C1, LF Solo (first Edition), Storm Voyager II and North Mono 2016/2017. Apart from the Mono, all single or no-strut kites for me have the same downside: A lack of depower. As soon as the wind picks up just a bit for the respective kite size, they get quite a bit of a handful and ar...
