Oh. Facebook search. Duh.

Not sure if this picture of a Duotone Dice kite and board is legit, but I thought I'd share it with you.

Hydrofoils banned at Anglet beach (Biarritz) France

This popped up, and I haven't seen mention of it in the forum yet: June 06, 2018 By Justin Housman Last week, Anglet, France, on the beautiful Atlantic coast not far from Hossegor, banned the use of hydrofoils along all five kilometers of its delicious beaches. It is the first such ban in France Sou...

Non-emergency recovery options for offshore foil touring

"Don't go out further than you can swim back" is a dying concept in the age of the hydrofoil. And the buddy system is not especially helpful either... if the wind dies, your buddy is floating there with you; if your gear breaks, he can only help by returning to shore and requesting 3rd-party assista...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list

From the other thread : Just got a 12m Aurora 2, also in the ultralight fabric. First impressions: - Weight: 2.15kg - The fabric is much stiffer and crispy. Basically the same as good quality silnylon spinnakers. Compared to the standard fabric, the ultralight fabric should stretch and distort a lot...

Re: Climbing harness on the water

4-yr bump: I'm a climber turned kiter, and prefer a big wall climbing harness in the water vs a waist harness (but will confess I haven't ridden with a modern hardshell harness- they do feel nice in a storeroom tho). With the climbing harness I feel that I can hold more power without getting pulled ...

Re: What hydrofoil board to buy?

From the other thread : I also tried the CRX by Neil Pryde (similar to Double Agent). With both the CRX and the Double Agent I had the horrible feeling of dragging something below my feet (like catching a plastic bag on my Sword2). I didn't feel the Double Agent had a good yaw either. My Sword2 with...
